new camera love.


today our new camera arrived! ...we have been umming and arrhing about some new wedding ring photos for our new brochure for Japan, and the photos we have already are just not cutting the mustard. USUALLY I'm the first to say that, cameras don't take photos, people do, and that you can get a great photo with any crap camera if you are skilled enough.
However, I have been lusting after a Canon for a while after a photographer friend recommended me, but it was a sky high in budget for us, however, when I glimpsed at it on Amazon the other day, it has dropped dramatically in price since last year...now it is safely in my paws!

these are the first piccies I took with it, seconds after scrabbling about in the box for the battery and memory card. They are just quick snaps, so don't cast your critical eye just yet, but wow, what a difference to our last camera! Normally I'd need to use some extra lighting to take these in our workshop, and then fiddle about on photoshop trying to get the colouring right. But now...no need! I can spend that time drinking tea and munching biscuits instead.

I am VERY excited {can you tell?} ...so now I have to take about 1000 photos of rings, I may not sound so excited after that, maybe : )

p.s. if you are interested in photography things, then i will be posting info about our cameras on my 'about' page soon.
