I put together a small area in my home to use a studio until we're fully moved into the new house, and because I've been going crazy without any new work, I had Iliana stop by for some Dita Von Teese inspired photographs.

Gorgeous. There is so much that can be interpreted from that expression. Lipstick has great contrast to the otherwise largely monochrome theme of the picture. The background accentuates the model without drawing attention to itself. Well done, as usual. :)

Absolutely gorgeous. I don't know what it is, but I love her eyebrows. In a world where every female has extremely thin or no eyebrows, this is different. Her skin is amazing I think ^_^. Also I like the colors. The black outfit and the grey background. Complements her skin very well. Yeah I think I'm going to upgrade to the Canon 60D, because I need to master my Canon T3 first before I do something like the 5D Mark II. Besides I want multiple camera bodies too! :)

Thank you for the thoughtful feedback!

I actually wouldn't recommend going to the 60D, it's more geared toward videographers not photographers. You'd be better off with a Canon 7D, Canon 6D, or Canon 5D Mark II.

That being said, definitely invest in more lenses and mastering your T3 first. Just get EF lenses only and avoid EF-S ones, in the event that you decide to upgrade to a full-frame camera like the 5D/6D.

You're welcome!

You know, I was just thinking about that since I did play around the 60D in Costco and it's pretty neat that it has a swiveling LCD screen but I remember looking at the advertisements talking about the 1080P movie and all that. So I'll take a look at the 7D or 6D.

What is the difference between the EF and EF-S lenses? Are they only compatible with certain Canons? Do you have your own studio or do you rent one out?
Kendra-Paige Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012   Photographer
Oh, sorry, didn't answer your last question. I have rented a studio in the past, but am now just using a wall in my home for a studio until I get it fully setup.
TheyCallMe-G Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2012   Photographer
Oh no you're good. I'm thinking about just doing that when I move out on my own again. I want to get into shooting models and cars. I'm getting tired of nature photography. I need a variety. Now I got to suck up my manhood and talk to people interested in modeling lol. Dammit....I have to talk to people??? lol.
Kendra-Paige Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012   Photographer
Yeah, I definitely think the latter two will be a better fit for you.

The differences between the EF and EF-S lenses are purely cosmetic, but the main concern is that EF-S lenses will not work on full-frame Canon bodies like the 1D/5D/6D, so EF lenses are a better investment, because they're compatible across the entire product line.
TheyCallMe-G Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2012   Photographer
Yeah I finally read up on that somewhere, to just doesn't make sense. I guess the EF-S lenses are just pretty much for budget minded people or hobbyist who are not going to upgrade to a full-frame body. I'm looking at these two lenses right here:

Canon - Zoom Telephoto EF 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 III USM ([link])
Canon - Normal EF 50mm f/1.8 II Autofocus Lens ([link])

Hopefully I can get a job as soon as possible. This is a hobby I've picked up after 5 years of absence and I actually love it. Hopefully I can pick up a 5D/6D within a year or year and half. Thanks for the advice. I appreciate it.
