Last week I rented (from Nelson's Photo Supply in Little Italy) a wide angle lens (the Canon EF-S 10-22mm) to take photos of our bathroom for a project I'm working on. The photos turned out and I had some extra time so I decided to play with the lens in other areas of our house (that frequently show up on the blog) AND show you a side-by-side comparison with two of my other lenses.
I posted five different areas below. In each series, the top photo is the rented wide angle. The second is the lens (Canon EF-S 18-55mm) that came with my camera (Canon Rebel XSi), backed out all the way. The third (the Canon EF 35mm f/2 - which I bought for under $300 but is currently over $700 on amazon!) is the lens that I have on my camera most of the time for photos of people, product, projects, etc. To keep the playing field even, I stood in the same spot and held the camera the same way. I kept the aperture constant and processed these the same.
Here's my office. You can now see that I really need to get that under-cabinet chord situation figured out and that my fiddle leaf fig is dying a slow and painful death.
This is the view when you come out from the hallway which features the kitchen and garage entrance and my favorite two paintings.
This is what you see when you come in the sliding door from the backyard. (Yes I totally cleaned the house for these photos.)
This is Ellerie's room (Yes, I totally picked up her floor for this photo. #opposite)
And our bedroom! You can see that I still have the mobile up. Our hanging plants are doing SO WELL. I have almost completed my rug extravaganza! (And, perhaps in the most false advertising about my life I have ever published, I made the bed for this photo as if that is something I would do on a daily basis.)
I feel like I should note, this post is not sponsored in anyway. I have no idea what I am doing with fancy camera equipment, but I do very much love to experiment. I did, however, use affiliate links throughout this post.
