My Camera History, Part 1

My parents gave me my first camera when I was in Grade 2. At least, I am pretty sure that was my first camera, it’s the first one I remember being my own. I remember it being a neon pink 110 film camera, well, I remember that it was neon pink and used funny looking film that I now know is called 110 film. Sadly that camera is gone now, but in my head I think it looked something like this…

110 film camera

My parents gave it to me as a Christmas present on one of the best Christmases of my childhood. We were in Disney (which I now know must have cost a fortune!) and they gave us so many amazing presents to mark an even more amazing trip, one of which was this camera. I spent the rest of our trip taking photos all around Disney.

Colour vs. Black & White

Bath UK Stephanie Beach PhotographyWhen I give my clients their images, they receive all photos in both colour and black & white (they also get them in both high and low resolution, but that isn’t really important for this post). I can often be heard saying that not every photo works in black & white, but this way my clients have the option and can choose for themselves which setting they prefer for each image.

Bath, UK

Bath UK Stephanie Beach PhotographyMost of the posts from our UK + Ireland trip so far have been about specific attractions or sites encountered during our trip and haven’t included everything we saw in one city or town. The reason for this is twofold. The first reason is because we take a lot of photos. Between the two of us, we took 7,478 photos, and we didn’t have both cameras running each and every day. So if I included all the site from one city, the posts would be even longer than they already are (they would be enormously long if I included all the photos from one entire day of our trip). The second reason is because we didn’t spend too much time in actual cities or towns. Most of our stops were at attractions located in the countryside. So with all of that said, I believe this is the first post about an actual city – the city of Bath, UK.

Trinity College, Dublin

Trinity College Stephanie Beach PhotographyMy apologies for the lengthy travel posts lately. I have so many wonderful photos from the amazing places we visited on our trip and this summer is so full of weddings this year, that I know there isn’t going to be much time for me to share these here (or edit them in general). So with all that said, here is another post from our trip.

Dunamase Castle

Rock of Dunamase Stephanie Beach PhotographyThe first castle Dave and I visited was Dunamase Castle in County Laois, Ireland. In actuality, it is better known as The Rock of Dunamase as it is in complete ruins, which was completely awesome! We had been through a bit of western Britain and a few highlights in Dublin, and we were driving across Ireland to the west coast to stay near the Cliffs of Moher. We decided to stop here because it wasn’t far from the highway and I had thought Dave would find it neat (and I was right).
