New Camera

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!  After much deliberation, I finally picked up a new camera.  I'm so very excited.  I got the Canon Poweshot  SX20IS this afternoon at Best Buy and just had to try it out immediately.  Just a couple of close ups of my eyes, excuse the far from perfect makep- this was after a full work day and some time out in the rain.  I just used the auto setting for these shots as I have so much to learn about this camera.  I have a feeling I will be on a posting spree for a while!  Click below if you are interested in reading more detail about the camera :)

My new Camera

On my eyes I used a few colors from a MAC Holiday Palette... think its the royal assets palette :)

What do you all think of the photo quality?  I think its pretty great, I didn't realize I needed to pluck my brows till I saw these pics ;)


  1. this is beautiful!!!


  2. These images are so sharp and precise! Makes me want a new camera too, 7.1 pixels sounds disastrous at this stage!
    Love the makeup too, BTW :)

  3. thanks Marce! omg, can't wait to play around with the settings on this camera and really learn how to get the most out of it. I'm excited to actually be able to show some accurate color portrayals!

  4. OMG, you just had it today and the pics are quite amazing ...When you will practise, what's it gonna be ???
    I must admit I am a lazy photographer : I always use the macro setting and clic clac...And I am often disapointed by the way the colors look ;-(

    Have fun with your new toy !

    This camera has an adjustable view finder so I can actually see the 100s of self portraits i take as i take them :)

  6. wow, the photos looks great. The colors shows up really well. Im sure you're gonna have fun playing with your new toy :)

  7. The photos look really clear, and your makeup is beautiful as always :)

  8. LOVING the new camera! Mine is a cheapo because I'm hard on them. But it works ok for what I want to do. :D
