Number One Blogging Must Have

Thursday, July 24, 2014

One of the best tools I have to improve my blog would hands down be my DSLR Camera. I love my Canon 60D so much! My camera was a gift from my parents for my college graduation and it's one of the best gifts I've ever gotten. This weekend I am actually photographing my first event . . . a wedding! I'd be absolutely lying if I said I wasn't scared to death to mess something up, but I am also really excited to be able to share something I love so much with other people. I've done senior pictures and portrait sessions in the past, but capturing a day you can never recreate is terrifying. Luckily I will have my husband there with me to help capture anything I miss. And you better believe I will share my tips and experience with all of you after I stop freaking out.

Blogging is such a great place to not only share stories about your life and the best diy tips you have, but it's also a wonderful outlet to share your photos. Blogging pushes me to try new things, and while doing that it also pushes me to document those things. I've always been the type of person to take hundreds of photos, but thanks to blogging, now I'm taking thousands. (If you don't document it, it didn't happen right?!?) I'm definitely guilty of filling my blogging feed with iPhone pictures a majority of the time, but blogging also motivates me to use my camera more often. No matter if you have a canon or nikon, a $700 camera or a $7000 camera, you are still a photographer and I know I love seeing your images!

If you don't have a DSLR, don't worry about it. These 22 bloggers and I want to give you a chance to win one! How would you like to get your hands on a brand spankin' new Canon Rebel T3i? Yeah, we thought you might. Just use the Rafflecopter below to enter.

  1. Unfortunately, I don't have a camera AT ALL for my blog. Just my measly iPhone. This would be AMAZING to win!!

  2. I have been telling my husband for MONTHS now all of the reasons I need a nice camera ;) This would perhaps take some pressure off his shoulders during his next shopping trip?! ha!

  3. I would LOVE to have this camera - I just wrote a post about this yesterday! Besides a computer (duh), a good camera is next on my list :)

  4. Wow, what a great giveaway!! I absolutely love my new little Canon!!

  5. Dear Lord, look at all the ways to enter. That will take a full day to go through :)
