It’s Friday lunch and I’m a little excited.
Excited for 3 reasons
- It’s Friday!
2. I’ve a free weekend and have promised myself to get stuck into my Tilly and the Buttons sewing with jersey, online course.
3. I’ve just received an email that these have been delivered at home.
The first is obviously a tripod. My daughter is having her room painted white which will provide a great backdrop for photographing my makes, especially garments, throughout the winter. I am very fed up of the brick wall of our house.
My camera phone is fast to use and great outside in the daylight but with winter approaching I need to switch to my Nikon DLSR bought for me by my OH for Christmas last year.
However it is a bit of a long winded process to open up our ancient house laptop to up load photos for editing, storing and using on the blog. And of course photos taken that way cannot instantly be shared to facebook or instagram.
This brings me onto the second item, which until yesterday I did not even knew existed!
Apparently this nifty little gadget will plug into my camera and wirelessly send (with the use of an app) all my shots straight to my ipad or phone!!!!!!!
Not only that!!!!!
I can view what my camera is viewing through the screen of the phone and take the shot remotely and wirelessly. Yahooo!!!!!!
No more waiting for slightly grumpy teenager to take my shot.
No more explaining, again, to my OH how to take a shot.
No more, ‘Surely we’ve taken enough now,’ from grumpy teenager and OH.
No more fake smiles at grumpy teenager and OH.
No more, ‘They are rubbish, why didn’t you tell me about my bra strap/knicker line/wrinkles/tired eyes/lipstick on my teeth/ washing in the background.’
In fact I will now be able to TAKE MY TIME and take AS MANY photos as I like and even change my lipstick half way though.
This brings me to the book. D3200 for Dummies. I thought it was about time I learnt to take a shot in a way other than ‘auto’.
That’s my weekend planned then.
What are you all doing?
Love, Lucie. xx
