My new toy is a camera, one that I've been researching and saving for, and that turned up unexpectedly at my birthday. So what have I been doing since the weekend? Playing, of course.
In the pictures above, Miss S is eating frozen peas. I could never have taken these shots indoors without flash on my old camera. Here you see her natural colouring and the light in her hair.
Camera Test #2: The Playground. Toddlers move All. The. Time. But I felt like the camera kept up for the most part. It was fast enough to catch Miss S mid-slide. Though the image is a little blurred I love that I caught her half way down, feet up, with that look of glee on her face. Once again, could not have done that before.
After bedtime, another round of camera play. I really wanted to see what the camera could do in low light. For these pictures I turned off the overhead lights, leaving a lamp on across the room. I don't have the most critical or educated eye, but I'm impressed and I expect to have lots more photography fun.
