Daleks in the Backyard! Where? (Canon T6i + Canon 18-55mm STM Lens + Off Camera Flash)

The Canon T6i and 18-55mm STM kit lens were staring at me, just begging to take some photos, so I grabbed my trusty old Nikon SB-26 and remote triggers and headed out into the backyard.

...and you'll NEVER guess what I found!

Daleks! The first one I saw was on the air conditioning unit beside the back of the house. Luckily he didn't exterminate me before I was able to get a few shots with the T6i.

This first image is my favourite of all of them. The SB-26 speedlite is hand-held slightly above and to camera left. I just played with my aperture and shutter speed until I had what looked like a nice effect.

A PhotoWalk in Roth Park with the Canon 50mm f1.8 STM on the Canon T6i

Despite it looking like rain, Renee and I decided to take a chance on the weather and headed out to Roth Park this morning for a walk along Pittock Lake. I took the opportunity to bring along the Canon 50mm f1.8 STM lens on the Canon T6i that I have in for review.
