OOTD: Camera Play

Sorry for the posting lull!  I'll come clean and admit that the Final Fantasy XIII-2 came out a week ago and I picked it up on Friday.  Sooo..I've been otherwise occupied with that along with a weekend in Napa with some friends and my cousin coming to visit.  Hence the lack of posting.  BUT! There are still outfits to be had:

I was reading Camera Tips for Beginners and started playing with things like aperture, iso and shutter speed on my camera.  Nothing super exciting yet -- the only thing I can say is that it looks like 4pm in the photos and it was actually 5:30pm, which is when the sun typically is mostly set.  But it's a neat little overview if you're interested in getting started with taking pictures.  What I'd really like to learn is how to take pictures of a focused subject with a blurred background.  I haven't QUITE gotten the hang of it yet.  Do you have some favorite camera tricks to share with me?

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. The PW has a bunch of great camera tutorials - I like this one for aperature: http://thepioneerwoman.com/photography/2008/05/what-the-heck-is-an-aperture-part-one/ Simple and understandable.

    1. Obviously I meant aperture. I blame still being sick. Also, I hit publish before I got to comment that I love your top in this outfit!

    2. Yay for more camera tutorials! Thanks for that. And LOL on hitting submit too soon. Do that all the time.
