Staples Canada #30SummerDays Photo Challenge & Giveaway

A sunny beach day here, a backyard barbecue there...if we don't pause to appreciate the finer moments, the dog days of summer are bound to slip by in a golden haze. One way of slowing down and commemorating small pleasures is sharing a photo a day, which is why I was so excited to participate in the Staples Canada #30SummerDays photo challenge. The challenge was simple: Staples would send me the Canon PowerShot S200 wifi-enabled point-and-shoot camera to try out, along with a calendar of daily themes to inspire my snap of the day for the month of June.

Fast forward 23 days, and I've done pretty well with the photo challenges! Whether I've been spending quality time with the boy or with friends, under grey skies or blue ones, or gorging on different types of food, I'd say this summer has been a fun one so far. The compact size and wifi capabilities of the Canon S200 make it a cinch to carry around and snap and share pics on the go.

Although I appreciate my normal camera and the instant gratification of smartphone photos, it's still nice to have an in-between alternative for those times when I can't be bothered to carry my big camera, and the phone just isn't cutting it. And if you need proof of what this little point-and-shoot's powerful sensor is capable of, check out the photos from this makeup tutorial, which were all shot on the Canon S200.

My #30SummerDays photo challenge is still happening on Twitter and Instagram until the end of June, and I invite you to follow along! In the meantime though, Staples Canada and I are partnering to give one lucky Solo Lisa reader a Canon PowerShot S200 (retail value $350). Time to get snap-happy this summer and start sharing your photos!
