Yesterday I spent the afternoon at a good friend’s wedding shower. Wilf, one of the hosts and another close friend, is an experienced photographer and has a beautiful camera. He let me “play” with it for the afternoon, and it was a fatal mistake. Sometimes it’s better to not know what you are missing….especially when you know you can’t have it! Wow, what a difference $3000 makes! Ha! I had so much fun snapping away, attempting to capture some of the bonds clearly evident between so many of the ladies in the room.
While I know that a $3000 upgrade is not in my near future, an 18-200m lens is on my wishlist. It is so much easier to take candid, real images when you’ve got a bit of a zoom option. Otherwise, I have to be too close to the subject and it’s harder to maintain some of the authenticity of the moment. While I agree with Chase Jarvis that “the best camera is the one that’s with you” (I use my iPhone far more than my Nikon), it sure was fun to snap a few using the Cadillac! Thanks, Wilf, and congrats, Alicia!
