Camera Bag

I'm often asked what kind of camera/lens(es) I use. (I will add that it's not completely about the camera, the change in my photography was all about learning to shoot in manual) I currently have the Canon Rebel XSi, 50mm f/1.4 lens, and 430 EXII flash. This has been a great entry level dslr but I've outgrown it and am ready to upgrade. 

The further I dive into the photography world, the more I find that the photographers I respect shoot with Nikon (probably 95% of them). When I was first shopping for a dslr, I decided to look at Canons since I've always had their point and shoots. I thought that having the same software would make things easier. In reality, I don't use the Canon software at all! I use iPhoto to organize and am now learning Lightroom to edit. My friend, Ryan, said to go to a camera store and play with the Nikons and see what I prefer control wise. This was such great advice as I found that the ISO, White Balance, and opposing wheel and dial were much more user friendly for me (I have traditionally always heard from others that Canon is more user friendly). So I may have a little bit of a learning curve in the change over, but I'm excited about my decision.

All that being said, my Canon equipment is FOR SALE!
