    How to protect your camera on the beach

    How to protect your camera on the beach from the sand

    It’s easy to think maybe I should leave my camera behind when we go to the beach and just stick with my phone. But then I remind myself that I have a camera to capture quality photographs of my favorite moments. If I’m not taking it to the beach, then what do I have it for?

    Travel photo tips with your kids for your next vacation

    What is a crop sensor vs. a full frame camera?

    I recently upgraded from a crop sensor to a full frame camera! I went from using my Canon Rebel T3i, my starter camera that I loved and used for nearly 6 years, to a Canon 6D!

And still, I didn’t fully understand what a full frame camera was until I held it in my own two hands!
