Rookie

Friday, October 26, 2012 126 0

Jacket: Jacob (love the buttons on this similar option). Blouse: Zara. Dress: H&M (similar). Watch: Daniel WellingtonΒ (c/o). Shoes: Kate Spade. Handbag: Gucci. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

My Man and I are still rookies when it comes to photography. Β Other than knowing how to adjust the brightness, we just point and shoot, and hope the camera is smart enough to take a great photo. Well, that method didn’t really work for us when taking these particular photos and shooting in very low light for the first time. Β These were the only two non-blurry pictures in the bunch. Β I think it’s about time that we learn how to properly use our camera. Happy Friday everyone!

    I had to do this as well. I wanted to learn focusing and everything so I looked up classes online but they were all so expensive. Turns out, our library has TONS of classes and it’s $10 to sign up for the series. So I signed up for their photography class and am learning. And this is just to maximize the use of your basic digital cameras, nothing fancy. I’ll try to share any tips I get!
    The outfit is gorgeous! Very glam-date night?

      Aww, thanks Lynzy! I’m using a Canon T2i Rebel. In general, it’s pretty easy to use. I guess I just need to learn a little more when it comes to night shots. I’ll definitely flip through the manual! πŸ™‚

    with the days getting shorter and our fall setting in, the lighting is definitely not helping with pictures. in this situation, you should try a tripod, and that will help with the blurriness, given that you have to change the camera settings to let in more light, it is more sensitive to movement. the tripod should help with that. xox

    i love this outfit – the colours are gorgeous!

    OK so I kind of know how you feel, except I know how to use my camera but my husband doesn’t! I wish I could take pictures of myself, since I know what I want and how to take them, but I just started doing outfit pictures, so we are going to have some lessons and look at ideas this weekend…
    Also, love the look!

    • Jenny
      October 27, 2012

      Ha ha, I feel the same way!! I don’t know a lot about cameras but I know more than my Man! Whenever I try to tell him what setting to use, he just says “yeah yeah, don’t worry, I got it”, only he DOESN’T GOT IT! πŸ™‚ Oh well, at least he tries!

  • Miranda
    October 26, 2012

    The best thing I can suggest for using your camera is just trial and error! My boyfriend recently got a new fancy camera and he just tries setting after setting til he finds something that works. It just takes a little patience from you! I, on the other hand, couldn’t work that camera to save my life. Good luck with figuring it out! πŸ™‚

    Beautiful outfit too, love the pop of blue!

    The light bokeh in the background looks very nice! Do you use a dslr? You might need a longer shutter speed to capture more light, but then you need a steadier hand or tripod. Still learning the photography ropes, myself! πŸ˜‰
