I love photography! Technology has made it easy and affordable to be a shutterbug – so I’m always taking photos of what I’m doing, my pets, where I’m at . . . all sorts of things. I really love to combine my love of crafting with my love of photography – there’s nothing more fun than DIY photography projects, because they are personalized with your favorite pictures. I’ve pulled together some of my favorite inspiration to share with you!
What is really cool is that you can make all of these projects by taking pictures with the new Samsung Galaxy Camera! This awesome camera is made by AT&T and combines with photography with an Android user platform – making the menus so easy to access and use. In addition, the camera features a 21x optical zoom, wide angle lens, editing tools and voice commands. I love it.
Now take a peek at the slideshow for those DIY photography projects – and get shooting!
