Something I have been thinking about for a long time happened yesterday, I bought myself a new camera! I’m so happy and excited, I always want to be better and do better, especially regarding my photos. I felt that the photos on my blog were not as good as I wanted them to be, so I decided to take the plunge and buy a dslr camera. I bought the Nikon D750, I heard so many good reviews about it so I decided this is the one.
From Canon to Olympus to Nikon. My first camera was a Canon 400d, it was actually my mom’s but I bought a 50mm 1.4 lens for it and used it for a while, I think it was about 2-3 years ago. Then, when I started my Instagram account I bought an olympus pen e-pl7 which is an amazing camera for starting out! I used the kit lens for Instagram and 45mm one for outfit posts here on the blog. That’s the camera I have used to take all of my Instagram photos, I usually put it on a tripod and use the Olympus app, it connects with my phone so I can see myself from the phone – it pretty much works like a mirror and the photos are a much better quality than Iphone mirror shots, so that’s a good tip! But setting up the camera and lighting and then importing photos and so on takes so much time that I have started thinking about actually using my phone to take my “mirror-shots”, but I need a standing mirror so I’m currently working on finding one. Someone’s probably laughing at all my efforts but it’s so worth it and nothing makes me happier than good photos. I’m just doing what I love! 🙂 I’m planning to continue using Olympus camera for my Instagram and Nikon for my blog photos, as you can see I keep my blog and Instagram quite different. But we’ll see how it turns out!
I tested the camera today and it was so good, I took some outfit photos and I will post the look tomorrow. In my opinion there’s definitely a big difference between a dslr and a small camera. But I would love to know what do you guys think, let me know tomorrow if you can see the difference!
