About me:

I work for a small advertising company. I film and edit commercials, take product shots, create product websites, sell sheets, all of that stuff. I enjoy photography, it's more of a hobby, but I would like to learn enough to be able to do it for a living or a side job, along with videography.

ptl-2010's current gear

Canon PowerShot SX230 HS
Canon EOS 450D (EOS Rebel XSi / EOS Kiss X2)
Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM
I use the SX230HS when I can't carry around my DSLR. It's got great image quality and a zoom range that covers all of the lesnes I have for my XSi.
This was my first DSLR, and I still enjoy using it to this day
This has replaced my 50mm f1.8 in most situations, though in low light I still enjoy the 50mm II's performance
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II
Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II
Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II
One of my favorite lenses to play with. Even though it's cheap, it can produce some pretty nice images.
I use the 18-55 IS for landscapes and sometimes wider portraits
I use the 55-250 IS for portraits and nature photography
