I LOVE my Canon Camera!
We have a Canon EOS Rebel T3i and we’re never without it! We take TONS and TONS and TONS of photos of our kids all the time. For me, it’s the best way we are remembering the moments of life.
If we’re on vacation, we have it.
If we’re at a swim meet with the boys, we have it.
If we’re outside hanging out, we have it.
If we’re on a day trip to NYC or Boston for work, we have it.
We ALWAYS have it.
My husband and I invested in a Canon because we knew we would be love the photos and videos.
And believe me, we DO!
With the HOLIDAYS almost here, now is the time to really make sure you have a camera you love and that you can capture the magic and memories with throughout the season.
Bring Canon cameras and lenses to your Thanksgiving holiday to capture high-quality photos and videos of every last bite of the feast.
Oh, yes… it’s a blast to look back at the photos year after year to see how much everyone has grown!!
I have some incredible tips and tricks courtesy of Canon’s Digital Learning Center, to help #bringit for capturing holiday photos:
· Capture the whole family in one picture with an ultra-wide angle lens such as the affordable EF-S 10-18mm IS STM . A wide angle lens allows you to get more in the frame, especially in crowded dining rooms!
· Not enough light? Consider using a prime lens such as the EF 40mm STM. A prime lens helps create beautiful background blur while helping you get better images in low-light conditions. This lens is great for capturing photos of both your family and food!
· Don’t miss a moment! Canon’s EOS Rebel DSLR Cameras are fun and easy to use; put an end to the days of compromising image quality over convenience!
But it’s important to remember that photographers of any level can use Canon cameras and optics to make high-quality images come to life. Canon offers complete input to output solutions, giving consumers the tools they need throughout the entire creative process, from shoot to print.
If you’re looking for some lenses for your Canon camera, there are some exceptional choices. It’s amazing that you can take the same photo with a different lens, to pick up on different nuances of the image you’re capturing… here are some of the choices:
– The EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens is a great starter lens.
– The EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM lens is a bit wider and great for landscape shots.
– The EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM is a telephoto zoom lens, ideal for capturing finer details such as boats on the river.
– The EF 40mm f2.8 STM is a slimmer lens without a zoom feature and best for capturing photos in low light.
– The EF-S 60mm f/2.8 is a macro lens is a great way to magnify and explore the miniature world that exists all around us.
Also… if you’re into sunsets (I live in Rhode Island and we live right near a beach, so sunsets are GORGEOUS here throughout the seasons!) I have some amazing tips for you!
1) Auto White Balance (AWB) – By changing to the Cloudy or Shade setting before shooting an image, you adjust the camera to take advantage of the different warm tones it can render
2) Exposure Compensation – By utilizing Exposure Compensation before shooting an image, it allows more or less light in, resulting in brighter or darker images that can change the mood of the same scene
3) Rule of Thirds – The Rule of Thirds advocates that the subject or major part of the image should not be placed in the center of the photograph, so that the eye has more room to explore
Have fun with your CANON this season!!
