Thank you for your patience –
My wonderful web designers will be making some changes (hopefully today) to help with the readability of 24.
In the meantime,
I’ve begun playing with a “waterproof” GoPro HD Hero 2 (Outdoor Edition) camera.
I haven’t even had time to read the instructions for it yet.
I opened the camera box yesterday afternoon, jumped in the pool with it, took a few shots, didn’t edit them –
And I’m sharing them today.
I love them ANYWAY!
In fact, I maybe love them more because of the simplicity …
I’ve been yearning for underwater housing for my Canon 5D Mark III, but it doesn’t make sense to purchase it. (Underwater housing for a professional camera costs almost as much as the camera does. I would never get enough use out of it to make it worth the cost.)
My son has loved experiences he’s had shooting videos with a GoPro, so I was eager to have an opportunity to “play” with one.
I find myself really liking the old fashioned, much less polished, look to the shots.
Doc, my golden retriever, was more than happy to be my subject as I played around with the settings of the camera.
It’s so fun to be able to show you my perspective as Doc jumps in the pool.
In the above photo, he’s literally “flying” towards me to get his ball.
(Our swims together are pretty much a daily occurence. I play ball with him, then I swim laps, then I play with him again.)
It’s a good thing I know what a sweet guy Doc is, or I might be frightened by his giant mouth flying towards me.
I realize none of these shots are the quality I’d get with my “real” camera, but they’re also shots I’d never be able to take with it.
Doc had fun!
I had fun!
When can we do it again?
