Pink Saturday – My New Camera!

by Michelle on October 3, 2009

I’ve needed a new point and shoot camera for a long time now. But being we’re in a recession budget I’ve waited and waited and waited. Well, I finally bought my new camera, Canon sx200, and it’s hot pink!

Since I’m a food blogger my photos must show every juicy morsel! And facing another winter with diminishing natural light was just not something I was looking forward to. So along with my camera I ordered a Photo Studio Light Tent Kit which included a 30″ light tent, two studio lights including bulbs with 6′ light poles and two back drops..

I set up my light studio in our den which we seldom use and it’s working out well so far. However all the plants now on the porch I move into the den for wintering and it does tend to get crowded but I’m sure I can work something out because the light tent now has priority!

I love my light tent! I can’t tell you how nice it is to not worry about lighting any more. I prefer working with natural light but since it’s getting dark now so early I have little choice. Originally I wanted a 24″ tent but I could not find that size with a lighting kit, so I just went ahead and ordered the 30″ tent kit. I thought the 30″ tent was going to be too big but now that I’ve worked it for a few weeks I’m so glad I got the larger tent!

Would you look at the size of these bulbs! They’re almost 8″by3″ and very bright!

    Happy Pink Saturday. My husband is my photographer and is dying for a new camera. His Nikon Coolpix works fine but he’s always wanting to upgrade. I’m looking into the tent and the lightning. So many food bloggers have drop dead pictures. I want mine to look good too.

    OMW, there is no stopping you now. I can just imagine what is going to come out of the den, turned studio! A hot pink camera, who knew??? Very fun, all of it.

    Happy Pink Saturday to you Michelle. Love the pink cam & love the tent. WOW! I need one light thingy bad, but looks too big to be carried across 7 seas. Sigh…

    I, too, am a food blogger and I can’t begin to tell you how jealous I am :-). I don’t know how you are going to make wonderful (your blog) better but I’m sure you’ll find a way to do it. I hope you are having a great Pink Saturday.

    That looks like you could take x-rays with it. You will have a ton of fun.

    Happy Pink Saturday, Michelle.

    Love your new camera – and the light tent is wow. We purchased a smaller one, and we love it.

    I enjoyed seeing the transformation of your kitchen. It is fantastic.

    I am always trying to take my photos outside near dusk because the light is less harsh. I never thought to get a light tent! What a fabulous idea!!!! I have to do a some research now!

    Happy Pink Saturday.

    I sooo want a light tent. I can’t wait to see all your photos from it!

    My best friend loves pink and would absolutely love it. You do have some wonderful photographs on here and I look forward to seeing more. Thanks for all of your hard work. Have a great day.

    Gosh, I want one of those too…I am so jealous, I do have great lighting in the house, but it sure would be nice to use that at night….Thanks forsharing:>)

  • Amanda October 4, 2009 at 12:07 pm

    That’s a really good price too. I hate the diminishing light in winter. Wish I had somewhere to set up a light tent 😛

  • Manuela October 4, 2009 at 12:16 pm

    So jealous! I’m such a pink gal, it’s not even funny. I’d so love a light tent too. 😉
    You’re going to have way too much fun.

  • Nancy October 4, 2009 at 12:30 pm

    Congratulations on your new photography “studio”! I have the tent without lights so you were wise to get it all. I have been using Photoscape (free!) this week to add “light” to pictures I must take in 9 months of overcast weather. Working out very well although the lights would make it all perfect.

    Happy Pink Saturday, just a little late.

    Cool new gear! What fun, I love the pink camera.

    Oh what fun!! I can’t wait to see what comes out of your kitchen/camera now! Happy Saturday, from a Sunday perspective!
