I’ve spent most of my spare time in the last three weeks watching reviews of camera lenses on YouTube. I’m convinced that I want to buy a Sigma 35mm f/1.4 lens and a Canon 85mm f/1.2 L lens (in that order).

There’s always so much to learn, and I always walk away […]Read More Day 4 of the 5 Day Positivity Challenge
A question that I get a lot is, “What art supplies do you use?” The obvious and boring answer is that it depends on what I am working on.
