However, now that I am getting into blogging (It has become my new favorite addiction!), I want to make sure that the pictures I take look good. I mean the blogosphere is looking at them (or at least the few readers I have so far).
According to this article, point and shoot cameras may be on their way out as smartphones with built in cameras are becoming more convenient for people to use (expect for this girl who still hasn't jumped on the smartphone bandwagon). Those who don't use their smartphone are usually photography enthusiasts who will shell out the dollars for an SLR.
So I'm contemplating if I should bite the bullet and invest in one of these babies
or if I should just practice and make more of a conscious effort to take better pictures with the camera I have.
Here's an example of a recent photography mishap, which you may remember me mentioning in one of my #reverb10 posts.
This is the photo we used for our Christmas card.
See how it looks kinda yellowish and fuzzy around the edges.
My brother was our "photographer" and to be honest the picture taking had to be quick since our pup, Rusty, was not having it with the Reindeer Ears! I'm trying to use this as a learning experience rather than fretting over the outcome of a less than stellar picture (I have to keep reminding myself that I'm "Letting it Go"!)
So I'm wondering.....
Is it just the lighting that was off or did the camera really play a role?
If I had taken it with one of those fancy cameras (once I figured out how to use it) would the result have been worth a $750 investment?
Help me out blogosphere photography experts! I know you are out there!
Should we invest in a new camera? Practice and try harder with the one we have? Save the money for a video camera instead?
