This is my daughter. Whenever she sees me with a camera, she immediately does two things. First, she flashes a big grin and strikes an outrageous pose. Once her picture has been taken, she asks if she can take my picture. I show her the shutter button and away she goes, having an absolute blast. Are her pictures any good? Other than a few lucky shots, not really. However, she has fun and today’s technology lets her get a decent picture or video every once in awhile.
There was a Mother’s Day tea in our 5th grade son’s class, and it was my job to pick up the paper plates, cups and napkins. Not a difficult task – or so I thought. When my wife offered to pick up the party supplies, I insisted that I would do it. After all, she is in charge of the party goods for every other event in our home, so I thought I could lighten her load. She reluctantly passed the baton to me and requested that I get something pretty for the Mother’s Day tea.
If I had to pick one piece of equipment to invest in, it would be quality light. Whether you are into photography or video, neither would exist without light; and the results vary greatly depending on the quality of light used.
