Point + Shoot

Supre Maxi Skirt / Uniqlo Heatech Top / Jeffrey Campbell Lita / Vintage Jewellery / Audrey Cantwell Turban

I get lots of comments regarding my pictures so I thought I would use this post to speak a bit about what we use to bring about the images you see. The concept, styling and make-up is undertaken by myself but there would be no lovely pictures to bring the vision to life if it was not for an amazing photographer, who I am also lucky enough to call husband. He is a tad anti-social as opposed to shy where social media is concerned but more of his work can be found on Flickr.

Hubby's home studio kit currently consists of -:
  • Canon 5D 
  • 50mm EF 1.2L
  • 2 x Interfit 200s through white umbrella, camera left and right. 1 interfit 200 top left on the backdrop
  • Photoshop

However, I am undecided over a camera for my own every-day use. I currently use my trusty Canon Ixus 870 point and shoot for daily use but want to share more great pics with my blog friends without having to rely on the old man / photographer. We use Hubby's Canon 5D for shooting style content for the blog. He reminds me often that 'his' camera is indeed 'ours' but I would not feel comfortable handling it for my own pedestrian use (I am a walking accident most of the time) and as such I am considering either a Canon 500D or 550D to replace my point & shoot.

If there is anything else you would like to know about the visual side of things on the blog I am sure I can convince my hubby to do a guest post! In the meantime, I am pretty sure I am going for the 550D but have you got a preference? What do you currently use and are you also considering changing to DSLR?


p.s I asked for advice and the valued ones spoke! Thank you for helping me make up my mind and expect to see the new  acquisition during the week.

  3. Simplistic, yet stylish. Lovely skirt to hide those "Lita" boots under. I have NO problems with maxi skirts or maxi dresses.

  6. John,

    If I could, for the coming season, I would live in maxi & jumpsuits only. They are just so wearable and not easy to style wrong. Glad you like :)

  10. This whole outfit is awesome. Love how you use white background paper, that's the effect I'm trying to go for as well but we don't have white background paper so I'm just whiting out the walls in photoshop. The photos are gorgeous! I am now following with bloglovin :) If you like my blog please follow as well!
