I’ve been getting a few questions on Instagram about my pictures lately. Here’s my little secret…
Let me start by saying that I love pictures. Love taking them, sharing them, printing them and covering our walls with them. With the addition of lex to our little family my obsession has majorly intensified and I find myself wanting to capture every moment. I also noticed I got lazy and started using my iphone for everything- I was uber lame and started coming up with every excuse not to bring my big camera everywhere- “it’s too heavy”, “it doesn’t fit in my diaper bag”, “I’m afraid I’ll break it”, “it doesn’t have a built in flash”.
I love my phone. It’s small compact- got the job done, and was always with me. But the quality- it’s just not the same. Especially when printed.
I knew I needed something more than a phone but less than my 5d so when I stumbled across the Sony nex 6 a few months ago I was smitten. I LOVE THIS CAMERA. It’s seriously da bomb .com. Paired with sony’s 35mm 1.8 prime lens and I am one happy camper. This camera is basically the canon 50d in a sleek slender lightweight body (we also have a 50d running around in our house- so I can compare with confidence).
So why is it my dirty little secret? Well friends- this camera is equipped with wifi and a handy app. Making uploading pictures to your phone a breeze. I can honestly say I don’t really use my iphone camera anymore- it just doesn’t compare quality wise (especially since an iphone can’t shoot on raw). So if my Instagram and Facebook pictures look a little better than the average bear- you all officially know why! I love that I can take quality pictures AND use quality pictures in the same time span it would take me to use an iphone picture. No #latergrams for this girl!
