When I first started blogging (2 1/2 years ago!), I learned what a DSLR camera was. Turned out my dad had one long before that, but I had no idea. Even then, I still thought it sounded pretty silly to buy an expensive camera to take pictures of food. Don't get me wrong, I love my food pictures, but not that much.
Even as recently as last Christmas Eric asked me if I wanted him to get me a really nice camera and I still wasn't sold. By then, I had seen the amazing photos they can produce, especially from my friend Kathy who takes amazing pictures of her kids (her real kids and her students) with her fancy camera. But I was still worried I just wouldn't want to carry around a huge camera. I think I'm pretty good at getting pictures, but a lot of that is that I ALWAYS have my camera.
Finally something clicked this summer and I was like, wait...I want to take cool jumping shots! Seriously though, I just realized that I still have a working point and shoot camera which I can continue to keep in my purse for everyday instances. That doesn't mean I can't carry an awesome camera around as much as possible for trips and random other fun. Now was as good a time as any to get one, I've worked hard all summer and I have a nice week to play with my camera in a beautiful place. So last night I bought myself the Canon Rebel T3 :)
I then immediately put Eric to work to test out my action shots...
(Don't worry, I do eventually learn how to do it without blurriness, still more to learn though!)
God, it must be fun to have me as a wife :)
This morning Eric and I went to go play golf which I happily agreed to because I knew it meant more action shots....
Plus, I like golf in the right conditions. Par 3 course, fast, beautiful place and using only the 7 iron and putter. Oh I'm sorry, is that not normal?
Also my golf game likes the camera, since I got it in on 2 shots on the hole where Eric took the picture of me. Score.
After golf I had to head to the beach to get some beach shots on the new camera.
Did I mention I love action shots?
Ah, happy vacation to me!! I don't know why I bother traveling around the world. The best places ever are definitely right in good ol' Massachusetts.
What's your new obsession this weekend?
