New Baby

So I bit the bullet and bought a better camera, I bought a point & shoot the Olympus SZ – 11 last year & it always left me wishing my photos were a little crisper and it wasn’t great in low light. So I didn’t like using it.

My husband found a great deal on Amazon for a Canon 1100D that we were buying for one of our businesses and I had a good play with it to see if it was any good for what I wanted it for. Well I loved it, it’s so easy to use and although I have a lot to learn about all the settings, options and all the lenses you can get – I already love the photos and the quality so I bought my own. I’m so glad I did, it was most definitely worth the upgrade.

I also bought a tripod so I can take some crisp macro shots. I feel like a pro carrying this about (all the gear and no idea). My blog photos should start looking better from here on in. What camera do you use?

    Ooh this looks amazing! Can’t wait to see new shots from this. If you need to take a photography course I really recommend PhotographyMadeSimple.co.uk. They do courses all over the country, I’ve been to two and they make it so easy to understand the insane amount of settings! xx

    I have had my Canon eos 1000D for 3 and a half years now and I love it! I use it for all of my blog photos and take it out with me on trips (and use it to take photos of my cats hahaha!)
    I don’t think my model is even sold anymore, so I’m guessing it’s one notch down from the 1100D! Is it strange that I’m happy for you, that you have a Canon? (Maybe a little, sorry haha!). I still need to invest in a tripod though.

    Hope you enjoy your new camera!

  4. I shoot with a Canon 60D, and I love it too! There is just so much scope for creativity with photography! And a tripod is a great investment, I use mine for every photo I take :) I’ve recently written a series of photography posts if you want to check them out here :) Let me know what you think!

    CONGRATS! I have a canon and LOVE it! Although I recently upgraded my lens. Enjoy it! Take some time getting to know the settings because a camera is only worth it if you can use all the features!! Just followed your blog so I can see some of the great pics you take with it :)
