I’ve had some questions about the kind of camera I use for the blog. I’ve been using this 12.1 mega pixel Canon PowerShot SD950 IS. It’s a camera that fits in the back pocket of my jeans and it takes amazingly clear photos. That said, I have needed a more professional camera for photographing quilts.
This week I got a Nikon D90. It’s pretty amazing. My husband, Steve, will be the one of us that take the time to figure out everything this camera can do. I have figured out how to turn all of the features to their automatic setting. So far that’s working for me.
I decided yesterday to test the camera on my (moving) grandson under the fluorescent light in my studio combined with daylight coming in the door. I set the camera to auto and the sports setting (that’s the one that uses a really fast shutter speed).
Jack did not pose for any of these shots. He was in motion. I’m happy because it’s really hard to get a picture of this boy – he never stops moving.
It is my hope that you’ll see even better pictures on our site now.
