|A special thanks to Lauren's husband for taking this photo for us!|
I’m excited to guest post for Two Red Birthstones today! Danielle and I have been best friends since college and we are both been very passionate about photography since high school. We have both watched each other grow this past year as bloggers, her as a mom, me as a newlywed, and both as photographers! I love her Friday Favorites and wanted to guest post some of my photography favorites! Stop by my blog Create Something Out of Nothing and read about my photography journey.
1. My Camera—I’m a Nikon girl! Though only since recently (I grew up shooting with Cannons), my husband purchased a Nikon D70 without discussing with me first, thinking he’d surprise me and ask for forgiveness later hoping I’d be okay with his large purchase. AND I WAS! I was over-joyed, jumping up and down, smiling at this brand new (new to us), “Big Kid” camera! I have now since upgrade to the D700 and have never looked back!

4. My NIFTY FIFTY! The one thing I have discovered about myself is that I LOVE prime lenses…I’m not a zoom girl…even though when I was young that’s all I wanted to use because it made me feel like a real photographer. I love the power my 50mm has, I have all the control, I get to choose the depth of field (if I choose I can shoot wide open at 1.4), if I want to zoom all I have to do is walk closer or step further away, I can handle that! I’m saving up for the 85mm!
(6.) A GREAT BAG! This is something I don’t have yet, so I can’t say it’s one of my favorites, but I really, really, really, really want a Kelly Moore Bag! (it may or may not be under the tree this year for x-mas!) I’m all for looking stylish while out shooting, a camera bag that looks and acts like a purse, sign me up!
Thank you Lauren, I loved having you!
