I got a new camera yesterday, and I thought I'd show you some photos I took with it.
I'm so excited! It is really a lot of fun to take pretty pictures.
They are SO MUCH CLEARER than my old camera (an inexpensive point and shoot) that we got right before Eliana was born. I am thankful we had a camera at all, and it's served it's purpose well. Now the kids get to make it theirs and learn how to take pictures on their own. They think its super cool. :)
Here are a few I took with my new Olympus PEN E-PL1 on just the regular auto focus setting. I love the natural lighting on this one of Eliana's face. She's eating something here, I think.
My new camera has "art" settings that make for cool effects.
Here are some pictures taken with the pinhole effect:
There is also a "grainy film" effect, which is really cool in some settings:
|What our living room looks like after a trip to the library and when I don't fold laundry. ;)|
|laundry in it's favorite place: on the clothesline.|
There is also a soft sepia effect, which is nice.
|This is behind our neighbor's garage.|
|Our first Daffodil of the season!|
|Little snowdrops are about to sprout up.|
|This flower is actually tiny- I zoomed way in on it and it was still super clear. Love it!|
It's amazing what a difference a quality piece of equipment makes. Now I just have to get a bigger case to carry it in, because the one that came with it won't fit the extra 40-150mm lens.
Anybody have any suggestions on a good camera bag?
