Thanks for checking out my work! I’m glad I could be an inspiration to you.
The T2i is a great body for both video and photo. The 28-135 is a good lens, but the 5.6 aperture might be a bit frustrating. Honestly, I would suggest getting a 35mm or a 40mm. Shallower depth of field and better optics. Also, a prime lens (non-zooming) will force you to work for your shots and make you a better photographer.
Good luck! I’d love to see some of your work.
New York, hands down. Paris and London are also great cities, and I love Philly too. In general, I tend to like any city.
I honestly don’t remember. I’m pretty sure I bought whatever was cheapest on Amazon (w/good reviews). It’s a pretty simple piece of hardware. Just make sure the reviews say there aren’t any light leaks and you should be fine.
Thanks for taking a look at my work (and congrats on Penn)! If you see me around campus, feel free to say hi. I don’t bite.
