Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens Review

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens Review

I recently treated myself to a new lens for my Cannon Rebel T5i. This Canon EF 50mm lens is actually fantastic and I would recommend it for any level of photographers out there. I have been able to experiment with it with some nature and my dog, and am pretty pleased with the performance. Also, the price tag is pretty reasonable at a little over a $100 bucks, depending on which package you purchase. If you are interested in checking it out, the particular package I purchased came with some filters and other various accessories that always come in handy. Here is where you can buy it. Below are some images I recently took to test out the lens.

Any photographers out there in the market for a new lens I would highly recommend this one. The Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens has a quick autofocus that I am enjoying so far. Other reviews I have read say it is actually great for video as well, but I have yet to try that out. Overall I am pleased with the purchase!

Hope you all had an awesome 4th!

Updates to the Shop!

Happy Sunday!

I haven't been posting as much as I moved into a new apartment and have been trying to settle in. You never know how much you own until you have to move it, so its been a cleansing items and donating them which feels good!

I have been decorating the new place and just hung up this lovely piece of an old Buick car in black and white in the bathroom, which this print is now available at my shop here. This photo is printed on 24x32 canvas, and fits pretty nice between the sink and the shower.  I am really happy with the printing, and contrast of the photo in person. 

I will be adding some sizing updates to the shop, to make the selections easier to navigate. If you have any questions on any sizing please feel free to message me! 

I hope you all enjoy your Sunday, as the weather is gorgeous! More to come soon!

Prints of Cleveland

Prints of Cleveland

Happy Tuesday!

I have been experimenting with Photoshop and some photos I have taken in the past few months. I am working on a series of prints that are a little more graphic and colorful rather than the normal Black and White or color prints I do. Here are three prints I have started in a series of about 5 in the works.

I have an obsession with yellows and greens with black so I figure why not focus on these colors first. I will post more when they are complete.

Clevelanders- weather is finally breaking! I don't want to say that the white stuff is over, because I said that already this year and got smacked in the face with more, but I will say the outlook looks good at this point. It is northern Ohio so anything is possible as we all know. :)

Cheers and I hope you all are having a good start to your week!

Sketchbook 3/8/2017

Experimenting with digital painting in Photoshop. Going for a creepy feel to this piece, kind of like Silent Hill. Always been a fan of those movies/games in particular since the environments are amazing. I am hoping to create a creepy type of vibe with this piece.

Happy Thursday!

Hello!

I have been practicing a lot on my new Surface Studio with sketching. It is very similar to the Surface Pro, just huge. Its nice to be able to see all windows rather then moving them out of the way.

Cleveland Co Labs Printed Flyer

I just wanted to share the printed version of the Cleveland Co Labs flyer I designed. I was super excited to help out Cleveland Co Labs market their event for charity.

The flyer was designed with the idea of two light bulbs going off, as in both sides of the business would gain knowledge and ideas.

I am very happy with the finished printed piece!

Hello!

I am currently working on some photography I did of downtown Cleveland Ohio. I have lived in downtown Cleveland for 4 years, but am a Cleveland native on the west side of the city. I took many black and white panoramic photos of the city, and am editing and prepping them for sale online. This is a test print I had printed, and overall I am pleased with how it printed. 

I will keep you posted on where these will be at for sale! Happy Friday!

Motorcycle Prints

Motorcycle Prints

Decided to get some test prints done of some of my motorcycle series. I am super happy with the outcome of these! I am wanting to show this series in a gallery at some point this year. I am really looking forward to making that happen.

I will be entertaining selling limited prints of these online, and more information to come!

I also need to find frames that complement the art. If anyone has any ideas please inbox me and let me know!

Earthbound Stickers!

Earthbound Stickers!

Ness, Paula, Jeff and Poo designs.

One of my favorite games of all time. Earthbound was a game that brought RPG's out of medieval times to modern day events. With characters each with their own personalities and abilities, a massive quest, and a weird final boss this game will go down in history for myself as one of my favorite games ever made. In order: Ness, Paula, Jeff, and Poo.
