Testing My New Canon 60D: Photos of Dior My Lady Blushes

This is the first product photos I took using my new camera. It took some getting used to, and I was testing the capability of this camera with far from perfect artificial light. These pictures were taken on my vanity desk, clutter as my background :-P

All photos are unedited, except for changing the size to fit my blog. My first photo was this one, taken further away from the light source and it’s a little darker. I was playing with f2.8 and zoomed at 50mm hence you see the dreamy effect.

I then went closer to the subject, and there isn’t much difference except for the bokeh on the product itself.

For this photo, I put the blush closer to the light source, and while it is a little overexposed, I still liked how it turned out. I focused it on the bottom right of the blush, and the rest look blurry. Of course, if I changed the f to say f4, the whole blush will look sharper.

Last photo, just because the blushes are so pretty. For this, the sharpness is only focused at the center of the photo. I love playing with f2.8 because I could never achieve such dreaminess using my old Canon G12.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures, and I’ll continue to play with my Canon 60D to try to master it. I get asked why I chose 60D compared to 70D since the latter is newer. I don’t need the touchscreen, and the rest of the features are the same. I save so much more getting the 60D, and at the moment, taking into consideration the uses I have for this camera, 60D is more than enough :-) What do you think?

    I usually shoot at low aperture as well – more so because I like slightly overexposed images and my light isn’t as strong as I would have liked :) Love my macro lens for blog photography! Beautiful images you have here, Lily <3

    I am very impressed to see these unedited pics and think I should graduate from my point-and-shoot camera soon. ;)

    I’m not much of a photographer and I would have to say that’s the part of having a blog that interests me the least! LOL. I appreciate beautiful photos, though! Hahaha.

    • Lily

      I used to be like that but blogging did spark my interest in photography :-)

    Beautiful photos, Lily! Congratulations on the new camera. :D I love playing with the different settings on mine, too. Looking forward to your new photos!

    • Lily

      Thanks Carina :-) I took quite a few photos using my old camera, so in the meantime, you’ll be seeing some photos from both old and new camera! I really need to get my act together and use those old photos. LOL!

    TOTAL DROOLS. The photos, the camera, the blushes!

    • Lily

      Hahahaha! I love the blushes too. And the camera + lenses really makes my life easier :-)

    Gorgeous shots. Gorgeous blushes. I wish my photos turned out this awesome when I first started shooting with my camera, haha. Good job, Lily! :D

    60D has a flip-out screen, too, right? That should work out great for taking self shots. I have a different model and had to buy a separate field monitor so I know what I’m doing when I take photos of myself. :D

    • Lily

      Thank you Jaa :-) Yes, the 60D has a flip screen which is one of the requirements I look for in a camera. It would be difficult to shoot FOTDs otherwise!
