Last week’s poll asked what kind of chocolate Easter bunny you preferred. It was no surprise to me to see that the majority of respondents said that they preferred solid chocolate bunnies. All that empty space is nothing more than a waste and when it comes to chocolate who wants waste? :)
This week’s poll asks what kind of camera you currently use. As some of you may know I upgraded to a DSLR just days before my son was born. I have been interested in using a DSLR for years but never had the cash to put down on it. Thanks to a gift from my parents I was able to purchase one to take lots and lots of photos–just like any proud father should. While I have the DSLR I find that it’s a bit of a pain to lug around and in certain situations I just don’t feel comfortable having it with me at all (like camping).
While I’m still working out how to take good photos with the DSLR I am enjoying it so far. I have a long way to go and find that some of my food shots have improved while others definitely don’t look as good as what I was doing with my simple point and shoot. As time goes on and I get a new lens that is better for macro photography I hope that all changes–I’m sure it will.
So what kind of camera do you use? Are you partial to one type or another? What brand do you use and why? What lenses do you recommend for macro photography, specifically food? How about suggestions on taking better pictures of kids? So go ahead and vote and then share whatever you have to say about your camera go ahead and comment on as I’d love to hear your thoughts!
