Got my birthday present a bit early this year- new macro lens for Canon 7D! I’ve still got a lot to learn, but this should allow for some more atmospheric photos. Plus this lens has IS which should help compensate for hand-holding this heavy gear. I know more hardcore doll geeks use bracketing and shoot on a tripod, but… I’m kinda lazy ^_^;
Neat trick I learned – hold something in the foreground to create a soft framing or scattered bokeh effect over the subject. In this case I’m using some floral stems with shiny pearls in front of the camera.
