Caleb Jay // Newborn

Meet my darling new nephew, Caleb Jay. What a gift it was to travel to Michigan and meet his sweet 4 week-old self. I threw my lenses into my suitcase hoping to capture some squishy toes and a tiny newborn nose. And, that we did!

Lenses I used:

Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Standard Zoom Lens

Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro

I borrowed my sister's Canon Rebel camera body for this shoot and learned how much of a difference it makes to have an upgraded body- especially if you use higher quality lenses. We were able to get some great shots, but it took a different technique than I'm used to and I had to throw out far more shots than normal due to grainy-ness of the images. I currently have a canon 50D at home but now have an itch and high respect for the newest Canon 70D! Don't get me wrong, if you're just starting out or use photography as more of a hobby, the rebel is an awesome (& much less expensive!!) place to start and will serve you well. Upgrades are always fun though. Someday...
