A Photo Campaign And Camera Giveaway. *Update!

Please enter the contest at Nikon Camera Giveaway And Summer Fun.

It seems word has gotten out that I like to take photos. There’s rarely a moment when I don’t have my DSLR or iPhone camera handy. The most used apps on my phone are all photo related: Camera+, Instagram, Snapseed, and my new favourite, VSCOcam.

And now my daughter is in on the action. I’ve caught her posing the cats — which they don’t love — and styling props, then standing on chairs to get the best angle. D thinks I’m ridiculous (I prefer ridiculously adorable) and says I’ve infected PG. I say we’re honing our creative eye.

D and I wanted a point and shoot camera so that he can use it on family outings while I trail behind with my Nikon DSLR and bigger lenses. This way I might actually show up in family photos. Along came Staples Canada and their photo campaign to celebrate summer and promote WIFI point and shoot cameras. I was asked to participate and given a choice of one out of four cameras. After a bit of research I chose the Nikon Coolpix S9600.

The campaign runs throughout June and I’ll be posting photos to Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter using the hashtag #30SummerDays. I would LOVE you to join me in capturing what warm summer days mean to you. At the end of June I’ll post a summary and review of the camera, and host a giveaway. Remember to come back and enter for a chance to win the same camera I’m testing.*

    Favorite summer memory – fishing with my Dad – seems so long ago – memories cherished forever. Having one child, a son, he said once to me “Mommy, I am going to have a BIG life” – very charismatic/kind hearted gem to be blessed with. Having said that I capture EVERY moment that I feasibly can – to stamp them in his memory and mine. Money can’t replace these golden nuggets. Fantastic Giveaway ! Photos on my phone just don’t compare. Tyvm for the chance.
