New Camera and Why Black Friday Drove Me Crazy

I had the most relaxing weekend, and for some reasons, all I wanted was to stay indoors. I chose to stay away from looking at any sales to avoid the temptation of using my money. And to be honest, I don’t feel like I missed anything. As a marketing student, I do feel such days are important as they increase business sales. But on the other hand, I do also think that advertising for Black Friday is aggressive, annoying and overwhelming. They are everywhere, and it drives me crazy! Don’t get me wrong; there can be some great deals. But one thing to keep in mind is that there are deals all year around.

Age might influence my shopping habits lately, but I decided to skip Black Friday. Instead, Axel and I watched a movie, and as I mentioned on my Instagram, we fell asleep 15 mins after it started. Last week felt intense for both of us, and our body needed some rest. It was a great excuse to stay away from crowds in shops and overspending. How do you feel about Black Friday?

I haven’t mentioned it to you, but last week, I bought a new camera; Canon EOS 6D Mark II. When I saw it launch last year, I knew I had to get it. My old Canon 1100D is a beginner camera, and over the years, my photography evolved. It shaped how I envisioned my pictures. And because of this, I made the switch from a crop sensor to a full frame camera. Low light performance in dark surrounding has been my favorite so far. I can’t wait to share pictures shot with my new camera. Below are images shot during the past few days.

As always, Thank you so much for reading!

    So crazy how big difference between those shoots of you with the old camera and the pictures of the flowers 😍

      You noticed the difference, didn’t you? I like how it performs so well when the light is bad… makes it easy to shoot during low light circumstances. Thanks 😍
