365 Days

One of my challenges in 2010 was to take a photo every day and post it to my photo blog. Here is a short video with all of those photos.

camera/video technique … i did it my way …

I found myself wanting to both video the action at Unicon XV and take photographs and ended up holding my camera on top of the vado and shooting both video and photo at the same time.

This is a photo of how I hold the two (note that I use two hands but my 2nd hand was taking this photo!):

And this is the video that I shot at the same time:

43 seconds into the video is when I took the photo above.

New Camera

I’ve been meaning to buy a new camera for quite some time – my cell phone is all very well for quick spur of the moment snapshots but sometimes what you need is something better.

Today I bought a Samsung PL50 – entry level type camera – but what a difference it makes in shots.

I cropped yesterdays 365 photo and one I took today with the new camera; then I uploaded them both into Picnik and created a collage to compare the photo quality. When you click through and look at the bigger sizes you can see the quality difference quite clearly.
