|April Evening Sky|
Now my hands are not slim- they are quite wide, so I have quite a bit of trouble holding a compact camera securely and pressing the button without getting my fingers across the image somewhere.
So I went to my nearest camera shop- a small chain, and explained what I needed, what I wanted to use it for, and what I'm able to do so far. I came away with a bridge camera.
A Bridge camera is a mid-point between a Compact and a DSLR. If you haven't ventured beyond a compact then have a look at this link
|Hawthorn in Bud|
Now my trip to Bath is booked, I want to be able to take some reasonable photos to capture all I see there.
I have images in my memory from other short visits, but I've never been able to see the city at different times of day- how light falls can give completely different impressions to places.
It will be used for a story one day...
I even took a shadow selfie - deliberately (in case you thought it was a mistake) because I liked the evening light falling on the brickwork. It wasn't intended for anything, just an experiment, hence the window ledge, washing line and the pipe in view...
There is a world of potential images and memories ready to be captured with a camera; whether it's on your phone, tablet, or other device.
Not sure how many images I'll end up taking in Bath, but the memory card will be more than enough for what I'll need... :D
