I spend a lot of time taking photos, whether it's beauty/nail/outfit posts for here on islaay.com, family photos or ones for the A Level photography course I am currently doing at sixth form. After having (and loving) the Canon SX40 for around 18 months I felt it was time to upgrade and buy the Canon 600D. I had a little bit of Christmas money which I put towards it but I paid most of it myself and I'm so happy it's finally mine! It's the first DSLR I've ever owned and although I've only had it for a week I'm definitely in love! I bought it with the standard kit lens and bought the 50mm f/1.8 II lens separately. I'm yet to take any outfit photos with it yet as I'm waiting for the remote which I ordered to arrive as I need it for focusing so I'm looking forward to giving them a go too! I need to do more research into the best settings to use and to learning how to the camera to it's best potential so that I can improve the quality of my photos!
