fiat lux (and then there was light)

Canon EOS 50D, EF-S 18-55mm, f/5.6, 1/1600 sec, 55mm, ISO 100   I have been playing around with my camera these days at night time, and I realised how important is the light in photography and what you can do with it, mess with it, deform it, and use it to make your pictures more "unique" !   I've tried a few things : long exposure with or without flash, with or without a tripod, and so on...

first attempts...

  It is finally here, my Canon EOS 50D ! And lucky me I got 2 lenses for christmas : - the first one is the EF-S 18-55mm, f/3.5-5.6 IS, quite a basic one, to do pretty much everything and nothing, to play around and take parties and holidays pics, - and a EF-75-300mm, f/4-5.6 III USM, which is a lens as good for portraits as for zoomed pics.
