Three months ago I bought a used Canon 70-300 mm lens for my Canon EOS Rebel 2i. But for three months I didn’t feel knowledgeable about its use. What if I broke the lens? What if I dropped it? Or didn’t attach it right? For three months I played the fear game in my head. Today I thought what the heck? Go for it. Computers don’t bother me. If something doesn’t work hit a button until something, anything happens and then go from there. So why not with this lens, I thought.
Here are a few of my favorite pictures from my first session. Besides learning to face my fears, I decided that it is time to take some lessons and get off auto. Life is too short to fear trying something new.
