Ooh, Camera

I want to thank so many of you for commenting and helping to point me in the right direction on my post How to Take Better Pictures, which I should have named "How Do I Take Better Pictures?"  I also hope it was helpful to see the comments for other people that might be interested in taking better photographs.

I was mentioning in the comments and on Twitter that my dear husband got me a camera for my birthday, which is next month.  It's a Sony NEX, a mirror-less camera, with DSLR features and the size (almost) of a point and shoot.  It replaces my Canon PowerShot, a point and shoot camera.

I also purchased a book called Sony NEX-6 From Snapshots to Great Shots to help me learn the features and conquer some basics.

I took a few pictures and thought you might like some comparison to older photos on the old camera.

I was playing around with taking a FOTD the other day with it.  Eeh, all this detail on the face/skin is going to be something to get used to.  (Must remove errant facial hair as required)

I'm wearing Chantecaille Future Skin foundation in Chamomile + Porcelain (heavier on the Porcelain these days).  Ellis Faas concealer under nose & eyes.  Suqqu Brow Pen in Moss Green.  Lancome Hypnose Drama WP mascara.  THREE blush in Love Kick.  Kate Colorcious Diamond in BK-1 on eyes.  Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen liner in waterline.  Some Suqqu Creamy Glow lipstick, I think Umegasumi.  
Obviously I have white balance, lighting and color issues all over the place.  Now that's one of many things I'm going to be working on going forward.

Still love all your help and comments!  Thank you for all your help.  You guys are awesome-pants.
