Congrats to London of A London Review for winning the iPhone or Canon DSLR giveaway! Email us your address and your pick and we’ll send it right out!
Are you scrambling to get your family’s Christmas card ready like we are? Our friend and blogging phenom, Jill over at One Good Thing by Jillee asked Small Fry editor and resident photographer, Nicole to write up some tips on getting the best from your family photoshoot, or even just taking photos on the fly day-to-day. You can read the tips here. Jill and Small Fry have teamed up to giveaway two readers (one commenter at Jill’s site and one here) their pick of their favorite memory capturing device: be it the Canon Rebel and our favorite 50mm lens, or an iPhone 5! We love Nicole’s tips, because it’s easy to over think it when usually the best photos are the ones where we’re not thinking at all, just being ourselves.
Here are some of the photos Nicole snapped to go along with her tips, aren’t they beautiful?
Now, we’ve all had our turn with a DSLR and they are absolutely worth the effort, but if you’re looking to just shoot from the hip, literally, the iPhone is a wonderful option. With an eight pixel camera built right in, you’ll be getting gorgeous photos all the time with minimal effort. Here are some of our favorite photo applications for our iPhones, if you need a starting point!
So, what’ll it be?
Are you going to try your luck at the Canon Rebel, we’re throwing in our favorite 50mm fixed lens, because that is the ticket to beautiful family portraits. Or are you going to go for the sleek user friendly iPhone 5?
