Stay Curious - New Camera, New Challenge

stay-curious-learning-photo Let me preface this by saying I never win anything. No raffles, no scratch-off lottery tickets—nada. So you can imagine my excitement when I discovered I was the winner of Rachel’s Sony Camera giveaway! Thanks to her generosity and a random stroke of good luck, I am the owner of the new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 Digital Camera. This bad boy is the perfect size for travel and with Optical zoom, HD video recording, and panorama, it has everything I could need. Needless to say, I am beyond thrilled!

What better excuse to take on a hobby than a new toy to play with? I know little to nothing about photography--the images featured on this blog and pictures I take in general these days are all taken with my iPhone. I plan to take full advantage of this reason to expand & learn more.

My sister and I decided to test drive the new camera on a bridge walk late Sunday afternoon. We got some pretty good first-timer shots of the Holy City, did some top-notch chatting and were able to soak up the beautiful (and abnormally chilly?) weather. 

I can't wait to get in some more practice!

Also--be sure to check out Rachel’s blog, Postcards From Rachel, an awesome travel and lifestyle blog featuring a-ma-zing photography. I was so happy to add hers to my list of blogs to follow and I’m sure you will be too! She definitely has an eye for capturing beauty.

Have a great Wednesday!
