New Camera and Crazy Skirt!

Hey guys! I've been messing around with my new/old camera that I've fallen madly in love with and this is my first EVER outfit shoot with a real DSLR! I still need to figure out a way to get the colors to be more natural and the lighting and contrast to be better, but I couldn't help myself and figured that I might as well jump right into it and learn in the process! Of course that meant I had to edit these pics to improve the lighting and colors, but I still like how they turned out :-)



For comparison: here's a pic with my old digicam.


The colors are brighter here, but the image is also a lot flatter. I love how my new camera places me right smack in the middle of the scenery instead of making it look as if I'm standing in front of a screen. Also, that close up of my swishing hair has me swooning over the detail of my hairz!

How are you liking my crazy skirt? I have no idea why it has a print of sailor-esque figures with cd's instead of faces, but I loved the bold red stripes and the price (5 euro, SCORE). I went for a primary color outfit and a printmix by pairing it with this pale blue pinstripe top and my faaaavorite S/S2011 shoes, these green clogs. Simple, fun, vibrant and casual, just the way I like it!


skirt: T2
top: Pimkie
clogs: H&M

  5. Love the skirt -- perhaps the little sailors are wearing round hats and we're seeing them from behind? Also, super jealous of your new camera. I'm dying to invest in a DSLR and I cannot wait to get those crisp, vibrant shots!

    I do think the one with the old camera looks more flat because you're standing in front of a wall but still.. =P
    I love the colors so it must be called an improvement. I'm allready jalous of your pretty pictures. Need lots more practice but I hope I'll someday attain your level of prettiness :-)

  37. Om eerlijk te zijn durfde ik eigenlijk niets te komen zeggen, maar de volgende keer zeker :). Ja dat examen was inderdaad heeel gemakkelijk, maar mijn vingers doen nog steeds zeer van al dat schrijven. Dat beloofd voor verbal en non-verbal! Succes nog met de examens!

  42. If I lived near to you, I would steal your skirt. So beware. If I ever come to where you live, it might disappear from your wardrobe. :-D

  43. You look so beautiful! DSLRs are pretty tricky--honestly in some ways I think it's harder to use them for outfit pix unless you have a remote. But you did super well! And that skirt is badass. I love anything out there like that :)
