Blame my renewed addiction to XO Jane, or my Tumblr following evolving from girls with pastel hair to women with strong feminist ideals; I’ve been on a huge girl-power kick lately. Though, why should I ever stop? We rule!
Here is my current soundtrack:
HYPE ON LOOKBOOK
I’ve never been much of a purse person; in fact, I don’t own any purses… until now. From the second I saw the Zana Bayne Pentagram Handbag, I knew that I would be breaking the bank to make it mine. The leather is amazing and the craftsmanship is on point. Now, I just have to figure out what to put in it. So far, I’ve mostly been carrying around an empty bag with keys and a wallet. Oh well, worth it.
As you have seen from my outfit posts, I am not a photographer. I’ve never had ‘the eye’ or any ‘eye’ whatsoever for the amazing art of capturing life on film. However, as a media and social media person, I know learning how to take at least decent photos is a skill I should really acquire. So instead of sitting down to read the 400-page instruction booklet that came with my camera, I decided to check out other blogs to see what makes their photographs captivating. I realized that it’s all about the natural lighting and the focus. My camera(a Nikon D5000) only has one lens, so I was out to ‘fake it ’till I make it’ (the advice I give everyone for everything). Taking close-up shots was the best way I could make my photographs look artsy and worthy of any pride, so I stuck with those. I used natural lighting then brightened them up a bit in Photoshop if necessary. These are the shots I took for one of my clients for an upcoming Quilt Run. See the rest of this set here.
