Precision Camera: Supporting sponsor of Austin Fling



We are so excited to have Precision Camera & Video as a partner for our 2018 Austin Garden Bloggers Fling!

Precision Camera is Austin's prime destination for photography lovers. They have been in business for over 40 years and cater to both professionals and amateurs alike, with knowledgeable staff, guaranteed low prices, and an extensive variety of equipment. I have spent hours with the staff at Precision discussing cameras, lenses, and accessories. While looking for my latest lens, they brought out both new and used lenses, which I got to test out before buying. They give all used lenses a complete check up and you can get some incredible deals. They accept used cameras and equipment in trade as well, to save a little money on your new purchase.


Classes & Photo Excursions

Precision also offers a wide variety of classes and photography excursions taught by industry professionals. Fling attendees will have the exciting opportunity of attending one of these great classes free of charge. One of Precision's instructors will be meeting a busload of flingers at The Wildflower Center on Friday morning. Sign up will be available during your Fling registration. Don't miss out!


Before
Anyone who has read my blog knows that I am an avid vegetable gardener and also love to cook. I've tried adding recipes to my site, including step-by-step instructions. The problem is that my photos are atrocious. I figured that food photography couldn't be that different from garden photography, but that couldn't have been farther from the truth.
After

After many failed attempts I finally decided to take a class at Precision. I took "Intro to Food Photography". It opened my eyes to the world of back lighting. Always being outside, I've never had to worry about artificial light. A few simple tips have dramatically improved my food photography skills. I look forward to taking a general advanced photography class as well as other specialty classes in the future.

Shop Online!

As lucky as us locals are to have such an incredible store, those living out of the immediate area can benefit as well. Precision offers online shopping and has great prices and free shipping on purchases over $200. They provide support over the phone or email, before and after purchase. Their webpage is also a wealth of knowledge, including an active blog!

  1. Your comment about thinking food photography would be easy made me chuckle. I thought the same until a garden owner client asked me to photograph an afternoon tea for her publicity materials!

    1. Yes, you don't realize how different it is until you try it!

  2. I love your photo. Is that a frog wrapped in bacon? It looks very interesting.

    1. It was actually quail, and yes, wrapped in bacon. You are illustrating my point :)
