600mm, You Say?

Mac, being the fan of third party lenses that is he, scored a funky used lens to take his photography to new lengths, so to speak. He shares with us his newest acquisition. Stay tuned for a lens review from him down the road on his blog / our Bookface.


If you’ve felt that something special as you’re feeling the click of the shutter or the watching your vision unfolding in front of you, it’s undeniable how powerful the magic of photography is. What happens though when the magic fades? If you have a camera in your hands, does this automatically make you a soul photographer vs. one of convenience and at the end of the day, does it really matter? We’ve been trying to get to the why and feel of photography of late, so we decided to hit up our mics and figure this one out.

We’d love to hear from you! How do you define the magic of photography? Do you think about the why and the feel of photography / magic, or do you just roll with it? If the magic fades, how do you get it back? Please chime in! Besides this blog, you can find us on Bookface, (Mac), Twitter and Google Plus.
