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!
We started the morning with a visit to the Iris Janvier showroomWhere we checked out some of her beautiful pieces!With my best friend/ photographer/ assistant – ahh she’s leaving on Monday and I will miss her so bad…And had some champagne of course!My mommy joined us too 🙂Then it was time for a cake in a cute cafe just around the corner, we slept in and we didn’t have time for breakfast, so this was our little breakfast. We had delicious tiramisu cakes and I went for a Matcha latte. I first tried it in Italy and now i’m hooked! it’s delicious with almond milk, gives a lot of energy and it’s super healthy. I’m planning to buy matcha so I could drink it every morning 🙂We had some time to kill so we checked out some shops, I found this hoodie in h&m and I can’t get it out of my head. It’s a bit more pricey though because it’s from an exclusive collection, but it looks expensive as well. I might have to get it .. 😉Marleen found these awesome sneakers, she is convinced that she need these in her life haha.. I think she has like 4 pairs of Huaraches, but it’s never enough right?We decided to buy some take-away sushi from the mall and then had a quick lunch at homeThen we went to a light festival in KadriorgI changed the heels to Converses, a lot more comfortable to walk around in. I actually bought these leather Converses about 2 years ago but then decided that they were not my style, until last week when Marleen borrowed these from me and I fell in love haha! Sometimes when you see your stuff on someone else, you’re like damn this looks really good, I should wear it more often – right? Tell me I’m not the only one hahaIt was so beautiful!There was a beautiful concert in the middle of the lake, we sat on the grass and listened to good music. I’m so happy that the weather is still good enough, so we didn’t freeze while being outside the whole evening. It was such a nice day! x
Some tattoo inspiration, should I get one?
I haven’t really thought about getting a tattoo, or actually I do have thought about it but I always somehow knew that I will never do it anyways. But a few days ago I started scrolling on Pinterest and found so many cool tattoos, I like simple, small and minimalistic ones, you can see some of my favourites above! I think my favourite of these is the wave tattoo or the palm tree, I think these would suit me well too, I love tropics. Well we’ll see if I end up getting tattoo one day 😉
