I do not have one of those monster cameras. Partly because Tony and I are very, very lazy when it comes to capturing family moments on camera but mostly because I know I can’t do it justice. It was a choice between Screenwriting for Screen or Photojournalism when it came to my electives and I kinda wish I had chosen the latter.
Hindsight 20/20, etc.
So, most of what you see here are photos taken with an iPhone. Not exactly the Rolls Royce of camera world, but the iPhone has the best inbuilt mobile camera I’ve had – ever. Even then, I wish sometimes I knew how to take fancy schmancy shots. And that I have the camera to do it.
Anyhoo – had a flick through this guy’s blog and now I am inspired. Not enough to throw $1,500 at a Canon. But enough to try weirder shots next time.

You don’t have to blow a ton of cash on digital SLRs anymore. Check out this Canon for $275. http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=canon+slr&hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=y0P&
(And happy to hear that you were inspired!)

Argh! Unfortunately, that link didn’t work for me! Could you send that through again, or tell me what the make of the camera was that you recommended?

Sure, it’s the Canon EOS Rebel T3. I’ve never used one, but they get good reviews, and you can’t beat the price.

DSLRS these days are so great because they have high megapixel counts. ;
