One of my goals this year is to bring my photography to the next level. I don’t want to solely focus on my clothing anymore but rather let me images speak, i.e. tell you a story. I want them to inspire you but more importantly convey a mood and/or emotion. Over the holidays my husband and I invested in a new DSLR camera and I studied new skills, one of them being “creative night photography”.
“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”

Over the last couple of months I’ve gotten quite a few emails regarding my photography. Many of you asked me what camera my husband and I use, and what editing tools I primarily work with. Hence I decided to dedicate an entire blog post on my photography today.
Below are some questions I’ve received via emails and social media. I hope you’ll find this post informative and helpful, and don’t forget to comment below if you have any other questions, or perhaps you want to share some of your photography tips with me?! In any case, I would love to hear from you!
What camera do you use?
I use a Nikon D3000. Most of my style posts are being shot with a Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S lens.
Who edits your pictures and what tools do you use?
I edit my pictures myself and I primarily work with Lightroom. Lightroom is especially useful if you shoot in RAW because that way you can edit your pictures to your own liking.
Who takes your outfit post pictures?
My husband (so, cliché!). However, I take all of my flat lays, product images and social media pictures myself, and the pictures for this post were also taken by yours truly.
Do you take pictures with your cell phone?
I do, but I must say that I prefer my DSLR camera much better. My iPhone takes great pictures, don’t get me wrong, but it simply cannot compete with a DSLR.
Do you have photography tips for new bloggers?
First and foremost, you need to remember that no one takes a perfect photo every time, including myself. It takes practice, practice and practice. To learn how to edit photos I strongly recommend attending photography classes, or watch some Youtube videos online. For instance, I learned how to use Lightroom via Youtube.
Don’t give up, and keep educating yourself!
