I don't know how it was in your family but my Mom took pictures like she had amnesia and had to document everything to remember it happened=). She was "The Picture Woman."
And it was one of those things where we would be hanging out with friends, out to eat, or at or going to an event, and Mom would say wait, smile! No wait, let me fix your hair. Wait, tilt your head down a little. Wait, your arm looks funny, move it like this. Wait, move over here in front of this tree. Wait, let me fix your hair again. Now smile. And we would roll our eyes and say, Mo-om (you know the drop your voice and pronounce Mom like it is two syllables). And then later we would say... can we have a copy?? ha!
Then I got older. And I became, "The Picture Woman."
Now I'm the one that whips out the camera for anything and everything. And ever since I started blogging. Forget it. It's on. And I'm talking about the camera. It's on all the time. ha. Must take pictures. Of everything. Everything is picture worthy and everything is bloggable.
My Mom smiles or says I'm not picture ready, and my Dad's side of the family laughs everytime they see me start to unzip the camera case, saying here she goes again, ha!, and they may or may not smile for me, unless I make them laugh first. =)
So we got a point and shoot, a Can0n Elph, many years ago. It's a great, small, easy to whip out at a moments notice, oh look something cute, must take a picture kind of camera. And it's how we take our videos too. BUT I've always said in the time it takes to snap a pic, that precious, sweet, cute little, adorable, quick baby smile is gone. Or you get the end or just ended goofy face. So...
I'm going to eat these for a few months...
For this... Remember they used to be 10/$1 =)! And look they even came out with this... haha
I have been wanting a Can0n DSLR for years! I have been looking on craigslist, ebay, anywhere to find a good deal. Meanwhile Hubby's been saying our camera works great, is it really that much better? Well first, remember the precious smiles we miss, and second, well yes of course it is=)! And thankfully during BabyBoy's b-day party, our friends were taking some shots with there rockin' camera, [with the continuous shooting, my favorite!!]. Hubby asked, ok, are the pictures and photo quality really that much better? Both the husband and wife said, oh yes. I just stood there laughing, hitting Hubby on the arm, saying seeeee! hahaha! Thanks C and AO! Hubby said, ok, find the best deal and we'll have to save save save. Where's the Ramen?
Do you have a Canon? a Rebel? a DSLR? Do you love it? I've read tons of reviews on all of them! But I would love to hear from you too! And how about the lenses??
