My 3 Things: Photography

#my3things #photography

Cameras.  The tools of the trade.  In my case, these are my "tools" for blogging, and more importantly, to capture life's moments.

If you've been following my blog and social networking sites, you know I enjoy taking pictures - the pathological picture-taker, that's me! =)  Then came Instagram, my current craze and where #my3things began.

As a hobby, for my blog, for sharing images on social media, I alternately use all three cameras (well, one happens to be a phone with a cam):

  1. Canon EOS 500D (Rebel T1i) - I started blogging in 2009 and used a Lumix TZ3 for my photos.  By the end of that year, I got my wish - a dSLR as a Christmas gift for myself.  I love it!  It's user-friendly, takes crisp images, and the weight is lighter than most dSLR.  I often use this baby during social events (blog events included), trips, and family celebrations.
  2. Lumix LX5 - After two years of toting the bulky 500D everywhere, I knew I wanted a more compact camera since our old Lumix broke.  We don't have a spare camera except hubby's iPhone.  Besides, he doesn't like using the big one either.  Christmas of 2011, we got our second Lumix.  Features and picture quality are outstanding as well. And I like that it's white.
  3. iPhone4 - I'm a late bloomer when it comes to smart phones.  I just had one last July and it changed me forever! =) Instagram is my stress reliever.  Somehow, looking at IG photos relaxes me and puts me in a good mood...and helps me get sleepy at night too, hahaha! With the built-in camera, I can now take pictures of whatever, anytime, anywhere, and sharing them instantly on my social network.  The apps are just as fun to use!

Are you a shutter bug like me? What's your #my3things #photography?
