( bravery & bump )

March 20, 2010

so we finally bit the bullet
and indulged in a very nice camera
one that focuses on things
near and far.
and after months of research
found an embarrassingly good deal
on my good old friend craigslist.

and so, even though i'm a bit terrified of this machine
{ and i confess a moment of jaw drop
when i realized i couldn't use the screen as a viewfinder. 
and well, i can't shut just one eye
which resulted in some hilariously bad takes. }
i took 2.5 hours of vintage shots today
and am skipping with pleasure
at how nicely they turned out

i'm a
{ the camera is }
and of course i had my
lovely little photo assistant.
she only blew snot on the lens once.
{ she's a quick learner. }
and so she deserved
a photo session of her own.

a study of bump...

6 notes:

  1. So precious. My Poo-Air would love to snuggle in with this little piglet!

  2. What a lovely girl. I can't wait to see more of your pictures. :)

  3. She is such a good model. I don't think it is the camera or you... I think it is Bump that is the genius.

  4. Sooooo cute. What kind of camera did you get?

  5. hooray to new cameras and having a cute pup to model for you. :)

  6. I love your dogs! Such lovely pictures and very recognizable story (we have a cat with a very flat face that likes to sneeze on my camera too ;-))
