Backdrops made easy. Make a trip to your local fabric store and get a couple yards of gauzy material. Attach to a curtain rod or wooden dowel. Hang in front of miniature lights. Cheap & easy.


Bigger is not always better. On our visit to the Renaissance Festival, I opted to carry my lighter and very versatile Sony DSC-HX400V. Weighing a mere 23 ounces, it was a no-brainer with all the walking on a hot summer day. Its 50X voom allowed for great shots from a distance, so crowds were not a problem. After all, it’s all about having fun.
