Picture imperfect

Most of the blogs in blogland seem to have one thing in common.


Beautiful photos.

My efforts at photography are poor to say the least. This would be due to two reasons.


    1. I have a cheap camera


  1. Me

If you think the pictures that have made it into this blog are awful, take a look at the ones that didn’t make it. Until now.

Not so much photography to die for is it?

More like photos that make you want to kill.

I would love a decent digital SLR.

Anyone got one spare?!

Or very, very cheap?

Thought not.


Never mind.

But if any camera manufacturers want an idiot to test out their cameras – I’m here!

I’m sure that even if a fancy schmancy camera was to fall into my arms my artistically challenged skills would still make all the pictures look like they had been taken by a two year old.

You know all these photos taken at an angle that you talented picture takers do? The ones that are all the rage now?

I did them first.

Perhaps I have (well) hidden talents after all.

Even with a cheap point ‘n’ shoot.

  1. Honestly, I think the not-professional photos are the best. They're honest and real. Which are two qualities I enjoy most in a blog. 🙂
    I've been intimidated by those perfect pictures on other people's blogs to the point where I thought I couldn't include pictures because it wouldn't look nice.
    Then I got over that. 🙂

  2. I include pictures that I like and that's what you should do! Even point and shoot cameras can do some pretty cool things! My 10 year old daughter has a Nikon Coolpix and she gets some amazing pictures! She has really been working at it too!! (She takes more pics than I do…and I take a lot of them!)

  3. The Canon Power shot is a great little camera for beginners and you will love the quality! It's around $250, but will be worth it for all the great memories you will capture. Another suggestion would be to take some time and teach yourself how to get great shots- one of the best and easiest books I have found is called "Photographing Children- Photo workshop" by Ginny Felch and Allison Tyler Jones. I recently started pursuing my passion for photography, and this book has been so incredibly helpful and super easy to understand! I even started my own photoblog- you can check it out here and see what you think- http://www.jennys-joy.blogspot.com
    Good luck and enjoy!

  4. LOL If you want a different *look* to your pics, you just need a little practice is all… I used to take terrible pictures LOL But after snapping like, 200 pics a day, you develop some skills LOL

    By the way, if you are looking for a great camera for a cheap price, check out my review of the FujiFilm FinePix Z30 – I included some AWESOME pics I took w/ it and it only costs about 120-140 bucks at WalMart!

  5. I have a lot of photos just like yours. I use a little Canon point and shoot too. I just dream of something nicer, although I wouldn't know how to use it anyway.

  6. I like your pics! Besides you started the picture at an angle trend! Totally talented.
    Some of my pictures on my blog are my own, others I've just used for the article from the net. But those family blogs with picture perfect pics ARE NOT NORMAL! *cry*

    But I love your blog, just the way it is 🙂

  7. Well, I'm not much of a photographer either but I have improved somewhat. I did just upgrade to a better digital camera (not fancy) and I do have my Fuji Fine Film 4.0 megapixels here which is a few years old. Not sure if that's any better than what you have but I'd be happy to send it to you. It does need a new battery pack though.
    If you'd like it, just email me at redpinemountainatgmaildotcom.

  8. I don't know. Often enough I think taht the "mistake" pics end up being the most interesting! And sometimes, they just convey the feeling of the moment better than anything else! Just keep shooting! M
