Spotlight Specials and Camera Help Wanted!

I had to go to Spotlight on Monday to pick up a couple of bits and pieces for the roman blind Im making. Little did I know it was 20% off store wide. So I couldnt resist the temptation to pick this lot up for @$2.00 p/metre!

Now I just need to find some time to sew!

Btw I found my camera. Now I kinda wish I didnt. I was hoping to upgrade. I have a relatively old Canon Powershot A40. Im really struggling to get crisp images from it. (Perhaps its your photographic skill or lack of it....I hear you say). Perhaps your right. I'd really love to hear what type of digital cameras others have and how they find them. Please post me with your reviews. I hope your having a good week.

I've been working on my photography too. I end up shooting most of my blog projects in my living room because that has the most natural light anywhere in the house. Lighting can make all the difference in the world regardless of the camera.

Also, if you decide to go with a digital camera at some point, there are photo editing software programs that can help you punch up the color and clarity of your photos.

Love the new fabric by the way, I'll check back to see what you do with it.

Grat apron mosaic too.

I have a canon ixus 55 - but my photos aren't fantastic and I used my husbands fancy work camera recently and have come to the conclusion that a mega expensive digital camera would be the ideal, one day.. Hope you have a good weekend too!

I know I'm a bit late on this one, but I think the camera DOES matter, and it's not just your photography skills!

The Sony Cybershots are really good "point and shoot" cameras - but only the ones with the Carl Zeiss lenses - the lens matters. A Lot.

If you have a bit more cash to splash, I have a Nikon D40 which I LOVE, and they are a little cheaper these days, so you should be able to get one for not much more than a good quality "point and shoot" camera - the extra few dollars is worth it, I promise!

Good luck - I hope I've been helpful!
