weee~~ I’m back!

 

Sorry I was MIA. On Thursday, I had a sudden attack of conjunctivitis which caused me to be blind for a whole half day. I was freaked out like anything and left work immediately to see a doctor. I’ll tell you more about that later.

 

More importantly!!

 

I made a new purchase last week that I’m really excited to share. I’ve finally reinvested in a dslr after selling my Canon 450d two years ago. I swear I will learn how to use this properly and keep this camera until the end of time!! #nods

 

Here are some pictures I took.

 

And ofcourse, this can be a little beauty post too! These are my most recent shellac nails. Yes, they are my real nails!!! I’ve been shellacing for about.. 2 months now!

 

 

 

I call my nails my “claws” as you see on Instagram. They are majorly long!!

 

I know some of the pictures are still blurry, but I’m still learning so bare with me! :D

 

Here are some of the other test shots I made whilst testing out the settings on my camera. I used Manual setting for these!! #Reallyproud!

 

 

 

Does anyone have any photography tips they’d like to share with me?

 

I’d love to learn more about photography! ^__^”~

    Manual

    Check ISO
    100 super sunny (sharp images)
    400 day
    1600 night (grainy not sharp)

    Then Shutter speed
    1/60 second above good for handheld
    Any thing slower requires tripod

    OR

    Pick aperture F number
    F1.8 good for bokeh
    F8 good for sharp architecture shots
    F22 good for sharp and long exposures

    It’s a balancing act of all 3 of above

    Good luck!
    Ps Nikon is gooood

    you should listen to timmy~

    and if you really wanted to get into camera’s, there are books specific for your slr’s model… either that, or just practice and you’ll get the hang of it :)

    your nails look pretty though!
