I received a few emails asking what type of camera I use......after I guest posted on Maria's blog.
Well.....this is it. A Sony Cyber-shot point-n-click camera.....yep, point...and...click. A couple years ago I wrote this post about my camera....and yes, I still use the same camera....and it still works pretty darn good for a camera under $200.00....and actually, I just went on Amazon and you can get a very similar camera for around $100.00...that's not too shabby.
So....if you want good pictures you really don't need to spend much...but you do need to practice with composition and lighting. I also don't know anything about Photoshop....but I do use a free photo editing website to help my photos.
As many of you may know....Picnik will be closing on April 19th....to say I was disappointed would be an understatement. That's what I've used for a few years now....and I love them. They were my photo editing website of choice...but don't despair....I've found a great new site to help you get your photos looking tip top....it's Picmonkey (which was started by a couple Picnik engineers)....so you know it's gonna be great. When I go in to edit my photos....the main things I use are exposure and sharpen....just to brighten them up a bit and make sure they are sharp....and that's pretty much it. The secret is to try to get the best photo you can straight from the camera so that you don't have to do a lot of editing. So, there you have it....my photo tips for the day.
If you have any questions....ask away.
