Sunrise Photography With a Simple Point and Shoot Camera

Are you just getting started with blogging and can't afford to upgrade to a digital SLR camera?  No problem!  I'm here to show you how you can capture some great sunrise photography with a simple point and shoot camera!

Whether you're an amateur photographer ready to get your feet wet or a blogger just starting out, I'm here to tell you that it's the person behind the camera that makes the difference!  Even with a simple camera, you can still take great pictures with a little practice. 

I took these photographs a couple of years ago at the Dunedin Causeway near Honeymoon Island in Florida.  I woke up early that day like I always do, and I made it to the beach just in time to watch the sunrise creating shades of orange, pink, and even some purple!

One of my favorite things about these pictures is that they were taken with my old camera, a Canon PowerShot Elph 180, point and shoot camera!  I was given that camera for Christmas gift in 2012 and it there began my secret love affair with photography!

I've never let the kind of camera I use to stop me from getting great pictures.  Somewhere along the way, I realized that it wasn't about the camera, it was about the photographer!

If you don't have the money for expensive cameras, camera bags, and equipment, never let that stop you from your dream of becoming a professional photographer.  You've got to start somewhere, right? 

In fact, I highly recommend starting with something simple so that you can learn how to take pictures the right way.  You'll get to know your camera inside and out and somewhere along the way, you'll find your photography style.

Find your lens.  Find your camera filter.  Once you do, you'll begin to discover what works best for you as a photographer!

For me, I put on my rose-colored glasses every day, when I'm out on the hiking trails taking snapshots of honey bees and bunny rabbits.  When you hold the lens up to the world, how does it look through your eyes? 

Tell the world what you see through snapshots of daily life and whimsical wanderings.  You might like to read, How I Style My Posts With Elements of Nature + Fairy Imagery!

My world might look different than yours and that's perfectly okay.  Try out different cameras, including vintage cameras, in order to find the lens in which you see the world!
