SnapKnot loves giving away BIG prizes because want to give back to our amazing community of photographers. This winter, we decided to giveaway your choice of a Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G ED or Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM as a prize! Our lucky winner was Cathie Crow, from CLCrow Photography in Myrtle Beach. She chose the Nikon lens and went straight to the beach to test it out.
Cathie told us:
“I am LOVING this lens. I first found out when I got home from work and a photographer friend of mine posted about it in one of the local photography groups on Facebook. I was in shock, I never win anything. It was also the day of the HUGE mega millions lottery drawing. Everyone told me I should go buy a ticket, I knew that I had used my good luck for not only the day but probably for the next ten years. I did buy a ticket though and won $8. I found your email letting me know, that night and the following day I was telling everyone about it. I posted about it on both my facebook profile and my business page.
I’m not a morning person at all and the first 2 days I had the lens I got up early to take photos of the sunrise here in Myrtle Beach. The first morning, I got some great shots of the sunrise over the ocean through Surfside Pier. The second morning, the sunrise left a lot to be desired so I just took photos of the SkyWheel and the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. In those two days, I took over 800 photos. (I was doing HDR photography). I love how quiet the lens is.”
Cathie said she’s usually only behind the camera, so she shared with us some of her photos instead:
We’re glad Cathie is able to take her photography to the next level with a brand new Nikon lens! Keep an eye out for our next giveaway coming up soon…. we could be writing about you next!
