Way Too Much Tech For Me!

I”m finding that the Rebel T3 isn’t seeing the light of day nearly as much as my PowerShot S95….

It’s proving a little too much camera for me, I’ve packed it up and I’m considering sending it back to Amazon but I’ll probably change my mind in the AM!

What cam do you use?


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Aww, Muse! Don’t give up! I have faith in you!

    I, myself, have no awesome possum camera. I had a little point n’ shoot guy that got jacked up last year and hasn’t been replaced yet. But I know photographers and can appreciate a digital slr in the right hands. 🙂 All you need is light (well, ok, you need a poopload more, like some basic ability to frame a shot, color balance, post-process, trouble-shoot, etc…but it *sounds* better when you say “all you need is light, and lots of it.”). I have no basic skills in photography, and am entirely too unmotivated to search them out. But good luck to you, madam. 😀

      thanks sara ;-D I need some confidence with this thing! As geeky as I am it doesn’t extend to photography ;-D lol!

    ooh! fancy!

    I used to use a powder shot too, but I recently got a FujiFilm FinePix HS 20 and love it! There is a bit of a learning curve, but it is pretty user friendly once you play around a bit.

    DH has a Canon D, we call her Cam-era and we call my makeup cart Fernando. LOL!! There is definitely a learning curve, there are some great tutorials online, but I bet you knew that ;-).
    it would be worth it to stick it out but I can totally understand the lack of time to learn. There are also some great P and Ss that would suit your needs for the blog, but holiday snaps and other photos, it might prove better for.

      ha you named your camera and makeup cart case LOL you rock ;-D I def been reading up! I’m sticking it out and hoping I can pick up some good skills from all the tuts I’ve been reading ;D!

    it’s currently a little past 4 pm the day after you posted this, hope you decided to keep your cam! if I ever make my way to New York(?) I’d be happy to make a homemade lightbox with you! 🙂

    • the Muse

      • Soo

        oh right, I knew that! I think I just got excited from the prospect of meeting, haha. on a serious note, would you do that though? is it weird of me to ask? do you meet up with readers?! lol.. I don’t know much about pro cams, let alone Canon ones, but I’d bring my bf along who is a professional photog and he’d totally teach you helpful tips! 🙂

I really admire you both for the dedication you put into your blogs. the longer I follow beauty blogs, the more I want to meet the people behind them. I would love to meet you 🙂
