Snap Happy: My new Canon 700D!
Hello you lovely lot! Okay, so I realise that I've been slightly MIA recently and that my poor blog's been feeling quite neglected and thusly NOT so fine and dandy. However, that's all soon to change dear readers as I went out and did the unthinkable in such a harsh economical climate - yes, I invested in a new camera. Now, I know that it's primarily the content that shapes and allures a bloggers audience and the choosing of a DSLR can be somewhat arbitrary, unless you make your living from blogging of course. But seeing as I think I'm in this for the long haul (yes my lovelies, you're stuck with me!) I deemed it a worthy purchase.
I want to point out however that this venture was my personal choice and being the perfectionist that I am, it was only a matter of time before I obtained a new camera to improve my posts and overall reader experience. That doesn't mean though that as a requirement of blogging, you're supposed to have a decent camera - I follow blogs who's sole method of photography is from their phone, yet it's their passion, style and creativity alone that keeps me coming back; the camera does not define the blogger. Though I purchased my previous camera, a Canon PowerShot SX500 IS chiefly for university projects, it's quite nice to have an upgrade and a chance to hone my photography skills.
As a designer, taking photographs plays a big part in channeling my creativity and experimenting with colours, shapes and ideas - I've always been either sat behind a computer screen fiddling away on Photoshop or immersing myself in a piece of paper doodling to my hearts content, well now it seems that I'll be happily perched behind a camera, experiencing the world through a lens. So, this post showcases a small collection of photos I've taken on Day One of my new Canon 700D, I know I still have a lot to learn but so far, I couldn't be more excited!
What kind of camera do you use for blogging?
