Honolulu Portrait Photographer | Cortney

Meet our friend Cortney.  This week she is leaving Oahu and moving to Kauai.  She’s such a go getter.  Besides moving to Hawaii because that was something she always wanted to do, she has a heart for the deaf community.  So she has taught herself sign language and met up with the deaf community here in Oahu regularly, to practice.  She always keeps whoever she is around laughing.  She also has this super funny impression of Bon Qui Qui and is a gymnast to boot.  We tried to make sure we captured all of these aspects in our photo shoot.

Bye Cort!  Have an awesome time in Kauai!  We’ll miss you!

Holiday 2013 Camera Recommendations!

Are you looking to purchase a camera this holiday season?  Here are my recommendations!

I’m a canon guy so I’m only recommending canon.  But other brands of cameras work well too.  Click here to see Amazon’s top selling cameras.

 


The canon sx280 is selling for around $200.  

It’s 12 megapixels, it’s lens’ wide angle is 25mm which will be great for your at arms length selfies and zooms in 20x which is quite a zoom.  It also has image stabilization which will help keep your photos sharp if you’re utilizing this cameras zoom to its fullest.


The canon s120 is selling for around $429.  

I owned the canon s100 for a while and was really happy with it.  You can shoot in raw format, and also have controls over the shutter speed and aperture.  It also has a much better lens.  You’re trading in all of those features for less zoom.  


If you’re looking for an SLR the Canon SL1 with a kit lens is going for a little over $200 more than the canon s120.  So you’re going to pay $649 to get the camera and an 18-55mm lens.  

The option of detachable lenses, 18 megapixels, and all the benefits of a SLR.  A great first SLR.  It’s also smaller than other canon SLRs  which is nice!  


A mid range SLR.  Canon’s 70d.  The price jump is quite a bit at $1500 but you’ll get a much better lens as well.  My first digital SLR was a 20d so it was in this series, and I loved it.  


If you’ve got other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
