7-12-2010 The All-Mighty 10mm
Arriving home today was a strangely foreboding and exciting event. I wasn't sure if my dog would be alive. I was also unsure if my new photography equipment had arrived. As it turns out both were present and found where they were expected to be, my dog in her kennel and the equipment on my desk.
I ordered a new 10mm f/2.8 Sigma lens, along with a new battery and CF card. I still owe my father 200$ for the lens. The reason for the lens purchase is my new real estate job, but that doesn't mean I can't use it for other things right? Bet your ass that's right. This lens is a piece of work. The minimum focusing distance is something like an inch. You can jam it right up in someones face and the photograph the camera captures still has some background information.
These images are of spaces around my house. I kept getting my limbs in the shots on accident, I had no idea how exciting that would be. Tomorrow I start talking to real estate agents, convincing them that my speed and quality is worth their time and dime; which is, in its own dim way, mildly exciting.
