101 List: Shootsac + 35mm 1.4L

I’m taking a break from learning about FTP and installing plugins and setting up Showit Slideshow to check off another two items from my 101 in 1001 list: #5, purchase a Shootsac, and #74, purchase the Canon 35mm 1.4L lens. Woot woot, two in one week! I bought the Kelly Moore Camera bag last year and I love the look and structure. But I still hummed and hawed over the Shootsac…its lightweight, ergonomic design still appealed to me. So when I received a lovely $35 off coupon to celebrate my recent birthday…I couldn’t say no. If you haven’t signed up for YOUR coupon, or just want to check out their awesome products, click HERE.

Then there is the new addition to my lens collection. Ahhh I can’t believe I have this baby in my hands, the 35mm 1.4L. There is something about that ‘L’ that makes all the difference. Simply put, L =¬†better glass = better pictures. At this time in my business, I’m focussing on investing in pushing it forward, and buying new equipment definitely falls into that category. I plan to replace my 50mm and 85mm with the L series lenses as well, but its a pricey transition :)

I’m so excited to put them both to good use. Actually, I began by shooting my Shootsac with the lens itself…though they will both be put to much better use at this weekend’s wedding!
