Let's Chat About Photography (Mod Strap Giveaway!)

Giveaway is now closed! The winner is number 10 - The Romberg Family! Please email me at savvylittlewomen@gmail.com!

------------------------------------

I like to take pictures.

I get a lot of questions about what I use, what lens is my favorite, and where on earth did you get that strap???

I'm so glad you asked. Over the next month or so I'm going to be sharing some of my favorite photography tricks, gear, and the companies that I love the most.

I'm a Nikon gal. It's all I use.

I would say my favorite lens, and the one that takes the pictures that get the most questions, is my 35 mm f/1.8G Prime Lens. This lens is simple and is the one I use to get that "clear focus, blurry background" look that everyone asks about.

I use it when I'm inside with low light and no flash...


and I use it in situations when I just want to focus in on certain little things, like a mini guitar on Lincoln's shirt :)...


The amazingly wonderful and modern strap that is on my camera right now is this one from Mod Straps...


Oh and I also have this cap saver from them as well...


I know, don't you love them!?

And now, it's your turn. They have all kinds of straps to go on your camera, and fun cap savers as well if you need one. Today Mod is giving one of you 1 strap AND 1 cap saver! 

To Enter: It's simple, you can enter 2 times by leaving 2 separate comments. Just pop over to their site and let us know in one of the comments what you love, ok? The winner will be chosen through random.org this time next week.

So head over and soak up all of their cool products! You can also see them on facebook here, www.facebook.com/modstraps or catch them on Twitter here, www.twitter.com/modstraps! 

Good luck!

My husband does most of the shooting with our Canon (he gets to borrow fancy lens from work!) and I am sure he would love a new strap.

Thanks for doing this giveaway---a camera strap is something I'd love to have, but don't have the "splurge" money saved up for yet! :)

HeidiZizz said...

I love the metallic cap saver & the bubble dot strap. So fun!

PS: I'm a Nikon girl, too!

Niki @blake959805@me.com said...

I love the retro tear drop strap and the skull and crossbones cap saver. I think this would fir both me and my hubby who BOTH use the camera. :)

OH! Thanks for such a great giveaway...hope I win! :) Lincoln is getting so big! :)

Sarah E said...

I love the orange print strap! They are all super cool, but my hubby likes to take pics too, so anything floral is out. :)

The Beaver Bunch said...

I'm a Nikon user too. Though I've never really had the option of a cannon so I love nikons by default.

I like the Silver Victorian strap.

The Beaver Bunch said...

I need a cap saver so bad. I'm always losing my lens cap.

I like the Clear Rhinestone Capsaver. It would look nice w/ the Victorian strap.

Sarah E said...

I love the black rhinestone cap saver too! Thanks for the info about the lens too. We have a nice Nikon, but have just been using the lens that came with it. Maybe I will ask DH for a new lens for Christmas. :)

The girls said...

I love the Gray & Mustard basic strap. Yellow is my favorite color, but it's so hard to find trendy yellow things!

I'm also a Nikon gal!

those straps are all so adorable, but since both my husband and I use the camera, I think I'd go with the green vine strap & the black rhinestone cap saver.

Theresa said...

What I'd really love is one of the new floral straps with the gorgeous fabric flowers!!

Thank you for the great giveaway! I look forward to more photography tips as I can always learn more!

It would be so fun to have a new strap. Now if I can find one Ralph would like too . . .

Stacie@HobbitDoor said...

I love the brown vine strap and the brown and green strap. Not sure Ralph would love them, but I sure think they're fun! We have a Nikon too, you know. ;0)

I love the "Happy Floral Strap"

Kate said...

My husband and I just got a Nikon and are loving it...but he definitely needs a strap that doesn't have Nikon all over it. I'm thinking the black suit strap would be perfect for him!

And the clock cap saver is awesome!
