Favorite October Pictures



























Camera old vs. new

So a few weeks ago we went and took some pictures of our family with our camera, plus a borrowed camera from my dad. Neither camera was really that fancy, and I wanted to see if we really did need a more advanced camera to do what I was wanting to do. We were able to get some pictures that were likable, but I did find I had some frustrations. We took these pictures in a park in a canyon near our house. The pictures have some really nice scenery which I really like, but for the most part the problems I had were:
  • It took way too long for the picture to take, and as a result we ended up missing the cute moment way too many times.
  • The resolution was so small that when we did catch a cute moment usually the child was too far away for me to crop it down to how I wanted it, and have it still be good quality.
My favorites from this shoot are:

OK so this one was actually taken in our back yard. She was too tired when we were up the canyon, and we didn't really get any good shots of her.

So we invested in a Nikon D3000. I love it. It has one mode where I can just hold down the shutter release and it takes continuous pictures. A great way to capture the moment with my kids who don't hold still. It also has a much higher resolution, so it solves that problem too. It also has a lot of other things, many of which I'm sure I have yet to discover.

We took more pictures on Halloween. This time we didn't have the time advantage to go somewhere so the pictures were just taken in our house and back yard. However the results much more to my liking.
