Yesterday was the first session of an online photography class I'm taking called "Momtography." It's going to help me take better photos of the boys and the pieces I make for my etsy shop. Considering all our photos for the past few months have been taken with our iphones, we haven't done half bad.
I was so excited yesterday when a package arrived from my sister Madeline, the photographer. She helped facilitate the purchase of a snazzy new camera. It's a sony A-33 digital SLR that is 14 megapickles, records full hd video, and 7 frames per second, with live view on a TRU black 920 dpi swivel lcd screen with a lens. If none of that made sense to you, it didn't to me either. I copied it straight from her email.
I cracked it open this morning and I. AM. IN. LOVE.
Here are some shots I took today and consider these facts:
1)I have read nary a page of the manual and don't know how to work a sony A-33 digital SLR that is 14 megapickles, records full hd video, and 7 frames per second, with live view on a TRU black 920 dpi swivel lcd screen with a lens.
2)I have limited mobility, what with the broken foot. (Oh yeah, I broke my foot. For all the gory details on that, click here.)
3)The apartment isn't the best back drop these days, what with the broken foot and the lack of cleaning. Plus it's dark and the carpet is brown and ugly.
Handsome hubby, who, by the way, is going beyond the call of duty helping gimpy me, now that he's back from London.
Dizzle and Dad only made it in a few shots because they had to leave for school. More later for sure.
That's his flash face. The new camera's flash pops up and flashes, and that makes him scowl.
No more photos!
I took these with me in them by just holding the camera out in a haphazard way. I love this camera.
Eee-gads. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. Just you wait until I've read the manual, figured this puppy out, and gotten tips from my class. I'ma be unstoppable!
In other news, we're thick into party prep around here for E's big 3rd birthday tomorrow!
