My last post covered some of the highlights of Vivi’s January as captured through my DSLR. While they’re fantastic and wonderful, I can’t discount the unique abilities my phone possesses for capturing perfect little impromptu moments as well. I’d never take my big camera to the mall to capture our everyday, but if something cute happens while we’re there? I have no problem pulling out my phone and taking pictures of a few little things here and there. It’s something I never had when my first was a toddler, sure I could take my point and shoot but the pictures were a little iffy and they never got uploaded until months later.
For this I apologize first child.
If you read through my other post, perhaps you’ll recognize some of the outfits and situations, but Instagram gives these moments a completely different and more candid feel, like you’re peeking into my life rather than me showing you my favorite parts through my DSLR. I’ve flip flopped back and forth between PHONE! and DSLR! and I will admit there are better cameras for each situation but in the end it only matters that you capture the situation as best you can with what you have.
