In my family, I'm used to being the designated photographer because everyone else use their phone's camera or a point-and-shoot. So by default I'm supposedly a "better" photographer due to owning a nicer camera. That's total crap, I say. A larger camera just feels more intimidating.

Every once in awhile, I'll ask DH to take a few quick snaps while we're out and about. And each time, he'd react as if someone had thrust a screaming baby into his arms. It's so awkwardly endearing that I try not to ask too often. The pros of having someone take your photo? Pretty new backgrounds! The cons? Goofiness slips out, like my inner-FOB.

  1. I recently just got a DSLR and on our family vacation, it was said many times when taking pictures "look at JoJo's camera, she has the nice camera."

    I do some times wish there was another "photographer" in the group - even among my friends.

    1. Want to be friends, JoJo? We'll take turns taking photos of each other ;)

    2. Hahah that should be fun! I ordered a remote for my camera that just came in today. I'm excited to see what I can do with it - mostly with long exposure stuff.

      Do you use a remote? Are there any camera accessories you would recommend?

    3. I should be asking you for camera/photography advice, not the other way around! I mainly only take photos for the blog, so don't really have experience with long exposure, night photography, other cool photography terms that I don't know about :)

      My camera doesn't support the user of a remote (should really have done my research before purchasing!!) so I use a self-timer for blog photos. It' When my current camera dies, I'll definitely be choosing a new one that is remote-compatible.

      I'm guessing you already own a tripod? If not, I use this one and have been happy with it. This one is cheaper and also has great reviews.

  2. These pics are great! I like that they are in different scenery, mixing it up! Nice outfit as well.

    1. Good to hear from you, Linna! Any updates on the job hunt?


I'd love to hear from you. Constructive criticisms welcome!
