This is the first product photos I took using my new camera. It took some getting used to, and I was testing the capability of this camera with far from perfect artificial light. These pictures were taken on my vanity desk, clutter as my background 😛
All photos are unedited, except for changing the size to fit my blog. My first photo was this one, taken further away from the light source and it’s a little darker. I was playing with f2.8 and zoomed at 50mm hence you see the dreamy effect.
I then went closer to the subject, and there isn’t much difference except for the bokeh on the product itself.
For this photo, I put the blush closer to the light source, and while it is a little overexposed, I still liked how it turned out. I focused it on the bottom right of the blush, and the rest look blurry. Of course, if I changed the f to say f4, the whole blush will look sharper.
Last photo, just because the blushes are so pretty. For this, the sharpness is only focused at the center of the photo. I love playing with f2.8 because I could never achieve such dreaminess using my old Canon G12.
I hope you enjoyed the pictures, and I’ll continue to play with my Canon 60D to try to master it. I get asked why I chose 60D compared to 70D since the latter is newer. I don’t need the touchscreen, and the rest of the features are the same. I save so much more getting the 60D, and at the moment, taking into consideration the uses I have for this camera, 60D is more than enough 🙂 What do you think?
