Welcome to my office/my husband’s office/our guest room/our exercise room. Our home is a 4 bedroom with NO basement, so our spare room wears many hats 😉 This is my corner of the room. My antique desk was a $50 yard sale find that my hubby grabbed for me when I saw it listed on Craigslist. I had a makeover plan for it (picture white desk and GOLD knobs), but once I saw it in person, the water rings and musky smell made my heart sing. I have an eclectic style, so seeing a modern desktop computer on a vintage desk really fits me. My desk is made up of my 27″ iMac, my retro cameras, and my millions of notebooks and supplies. I carry around tiny Moleskin notebooks, and have a ton of Target Dollar Section sticky notes and tabs, as well as washi tape.
I have recently acquired a few more cameras, but my “big girl” camera is my Canon 5D Mark III. I was a Nikon gal before this camera, and I must say, it’s SOOCs are to die for. I love this camera, and it’s incredible high ISO capabilities are crucial for my lifestyle photos. My two lenses are my Canon 24mm 1.4L, which is on my camera 95% of the time, and my used Canon 50mm 1.8, which I bought for $75 used. I am a wide angle lover, but I wanted something a little longer for product photos (like the ones in this post!).
My other cameras are both film, surprisingly. My lomo instant is a fun instant film camera, but it has a few different controls so you can play with the settings, like turning off the flash. It’s so nice to have a photo printed instantly. My second film camera is an Olympus camera that I bought at a yard sale for $5 to be used as a decoration. Just last month, I actually bought film for it after a friend showed me how to open it (and didn’t laugh when I asked where the batteries go). I am still on my first roll, so I have no idea how those photos will turn out. There is no light meter, so I am really shooting blind.
My big picture planner keeps me organized with all of my various projects and commitments. It also has the blogger add on printed out. I printed it on half sheets of paper to fit into my mini binder from Target.
