"I was wondering what camera you use? Your photos are so bright and sharp!"
-Asks Martha via email
First, I’d like to thank Martha for taking the time to ask me a question. Now onto the question. I actually use two different cameras, one for my daily posts and one for about town and vacation shots.
Nikon D300s DLSR
This is the camera I use most often; for my outfit posts, DIYs, recipes and just about everything else. It has 12.3 megapixels, ISO 200 to 3200, duel memory slots, 51 Autofocus and lots of other amazing features you can read about on the Nikon website. I love this camera because it has a bit of weight to it which I find personally helps steady the camera. It shoots quick and the auto focus is out of this world. Plus it has a RAW format option so I can edit the photos as much I want after the fact which is sometimes necessary since I only shoot in natural light.
As far as lens go I only have one right now, it is a sigma telephoto lens.
This is the camera I use when I’m in situations where carrying my Nikon is impractical because it’s too heavy. This camera has 12 megapixels too, it has face detection and 5x optical zoom. This camera is super light weight and fits inside any clutch or pocket. It does have its faults like the colors are flat but I think it’s perfect for anyone who takes photos casually or someone not ready to take the price plunge with a DSLR.
Well, I hope that helps Martha. If you guys have any other questions please feel free to email me at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a good night y’all.
Playing Catch Up
Hello Friends! I feel like I am perpetually apologizing for my inconsistent blogging. But here is another I’m sorry for neglecting my blog. However, I have been super busy! And I thought I would put up a little photo diary post of what I have been doing the last month.
These cold winter months just call for lots of reading, so I have been diving into great reads just as Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms. And I have been working on sketching some dress designs, I hope to start selling my own designs in my shop by the end of the year.
On Valentine’s Day I made a heart shaped brownies (all thanks to my Ma) for the Hubster’s class.
We have taken in a stray dog (Rocky) from our neighborhood because she was limping around on her front leg and the temperatures were getting down to -51 degrees Celsius. She’s only staying with us until she heals up, then we hope to find her a permanent home, even though she does fit in here with the family perfectly.
I have been slowly working on new pieces for my shop. I hope to have some great, sunny colored items for spring.
I have been experimenting with nude makeup. I have always been into super red lips and (well I can be honest) over done eye shadow. But lately I have done away with eye shadow, toned down the bright red lips and started adding a touch of blush. I love the effortless look, although I can promise you the red lips will be back.
I have been watching the gorgeous snow pile up outside my window.
And the hubster and I have been out and about enjoying this wonderful winter in our new town. We’ve built a mitchuap, gone to see his school kids play hockey and broomball, attended some great parties and jam sessions, and met a lot of cool people.
Also, I got the opportunity to work for Special Education Services at the school for a week. Something I hope to pursue more in the future.
What have you guys been up to? Tell me how you are getting through the winter months.
