My thoughts for the day!

I believe in quality over quantity when it comes to ANYTHING in life!

It doesn't matter if it is clothes or photos!

I want things that look good and are going to last than things that look like crap and don't last.

Even if I have to spend a little more to get the better quality item(s)!
So let me show you the difference in camera quality. I know I'm not using the same lenses or lighting, but I will do that in the very near future. 
Possibly while on our trip, if I can fit both my camera bodies and all three lenses in my new camera bag!
 The image above was taken by me with my Canon T1i & my 50mm 1.8 lens. The quality is okay, but it could be better. This was natural lighting from a patio door with horizontal blinds diffusing the incoming light.
*Note: Please excuse the dirty shirt, I was so excited to take pictures with my new camera I didn't bother to change his slobbery shirt. He's teething right now.*
This photo was taken with my Canon 5D Mark III with my 24-105mm 1.4L lens. This image I used a cheap flash with the Wing Light Diffuser (it looks really dumb, but it works pretty well).

I think I'm more in love with the second image of my son than I am the first image.
I think the second image has a higher quality and brings out his eyes more.

I'm truly in love with my Canon 5D Mark III

It's quality is AMAZING.
While my Canon Rebel T1i is just okay when it comes to the quality I want to have with my images, especially if I want to have a good quality photography business. But it is a good starting point. If you are still deciding if photography is for you, then don't run out and buy the Canon 5D Mark III, buy something more affordable like the T1i.
So the T1i will be a training tool for my children and my husband.

Yes I am going to keep the T1i to teach my children how to take good photographs. It is an invaluable skill as they grow up. Who knows one of them may be the next Pro Photographer. I want them to be skilled at something that will never go out of style. As long as people are having children, getting married, etc. there will always be a need for photography. Not everyone has an interest in taking photos, but I'm going to teach my kids young. I plan to teach them composition, posing, focusing techniques, editing, etc. I just wish I didn't have to use my 1st DSLR to teach them. I'm worried it will get broken. I'm super sentimental about things. 

Well my older two kids will be home from school in a few minutes. Yay for half days. I must go get ready to fix them lunch.

Have a great day!
