It's been awhile since I've been wanting to try a new camera lens.
I have an old Canon EOS Rebel T1i DSLR camera. I KNOW, soooo throwback classic. But to be honest, it's a good camera for what I typically use it for (blog photos, & family vacations). I bought a new lens for it to play arounf more with depth of field. to get that nice blurry background for my photos... so I picked up the Canon EF 50mm f1.8 lens II . I've read some good reviews on it so I decided it was time... Anyway, I still have to play around with it. Review it a bit more and pick up a few tricks and how-to's, but long story short... Here's what's in my bag... using the new lens...
'What's in my everyday bag'
It's fall season now, and it's actually beginning to feel like it here in So-Cal, so I figure I'd crack out the old brown bag. I got this bag several years ago from Macy's, & it's honestly held up! I like the shape and overall slouchy-ness about it, but still looks put together (discretely hiding the shit-ton of stuff I lug around everyday...)
of course, I carry around my good ol' wallet (my favorite wallet since it fits everything, cash, cards, receipts, store cards - all in one place). plus, it just happens to be the same color as my bag... i've had it for years!
I did, however, pick up a new make-up bag, pencil-bag style because it's way smaller and compact, just enough room for what I need to carry around for touch-ups during the day. I found it at Burlington's for about $10. It's by Betsey Johnson, & I thought it had a nice pattern, nice quilted/fabric feel to it, and also has a black&white striped interior pattern, which makes it easier to see your products. MOST importantly, the ZIPPER is smooth as a baby's butt. it even has a cute fuzzy zipper pull.
Some of the stuff in the back is kinda hard to see (a little too much depth of field, maybe ;), but I also carry around hand-sanitizer, lotion, lip balm, small calendar, phone charger (which I keep in that little black pouch), a pen, an emergency kit (which is in that transparent bag in the back, which has Altoids, pads, tampons, nail cutter, meds, cough drops, earphones, candy, band-aids, and just a bunch of other random "just-in-case" stuff).
Everything all laid out... looks like a lot of stuff, but it's honestly stuff I use every time I go "out-out," where I'm gonna be gone for more than a few hours. It helps to make me feel comfortable, you know?
