It's actually quite sad how excited I was to experiment with my new camera this morning! I even got up 10 minutes earlier than usual so I could have a little play around with it, now that's dedication. I am still getting to grips with all the settings and functions, as for somebody who has never used an SLR before it can be rather daunting. I love how much more crisp and focused my photographs are. Before, my images were so highly contrasted due to my old camera and the poor lighting. I am still not 100% happy with how they have turned out but it will just take some getting used to and trying out new settings.
Nothing could stop me from wearing my new Spring dress today. I bought it whilst I was at home over the weekend but haven't seen it in any of the London stores yet which is strange. I love the aztec/ paisley/ country style print and the oversized style makes it perfect for layering over blouses on cold days like today. I used my sheer white studded Mango blouse as the fabric is so soft and doesn't tend to itch like many sheer polyester fabrics can. I also wore my new-ish H&M lace-up boots which I'm still besotted with. Last time, I wore them with leggings and no socks so they kind of rubbed but wearing them with tights today was much more comfortable.
I'm home this weekend too, but I'm taking my camera/ tripod/ laptop with me this time so will hopefully get round to take some outfit photographs whilst I'm back. I much prefer the lighting at my house, my flat lighting is really dull and there isn't much natural light so hopefully this time my images will turn out better. If anybody has a camera or a similar model and wishes to share some great blogging tips then feel free, would much appreciate your help!
