Sometimes you just need a play day, no serious photography, no pressure, no early or late hours. Just good old fashioned snapshots with a little creative interpretation thrown in. I had been looking for a great point and shoot I could throw in my purse and just have when easily available when I wanted to capture the moment. I finally found it with the Canon G7X MII, and stumbled on a photography playground with their creative modes.
Peter and I recently spent the day at the Getty Center in Los Angeles. There are so many visually interesting things to see besides the art and the manuscripts. I spent well over an hour in the gardens (and it was 90+ degrees) playing with the creative modes on the G7X MII. My favorite treatments were: Toy Camera, Miniature, and Art Bold Effect. Sometimes just letting go can be what’s needed.
