This is my "Please don't leave sunshine!!!" outfit. It's getting colder day by day and the mornings are getting darker which makes it somewhat difficult to get out of bed. And I feel we didn't even have a summer here in the UK, there was definitely not enough BBQ's going on! Anyway, that's not really what I want to share with you this chilly Friday. What I do want to talk about is how everyone starts up blogging. I started my blog a few months ago, one of the reasons I haven't blogged from earlier is that I didn't have anyone to help me take pictures of outfits on a regular basis and I could not fork out for a nice camera with a tripod. So I thought before I save up and splurge, I wanted to see if my blog would even get noticed by anyone and liked. Now that I know so many of you are interested in what I have to say/wear (:)) I am saving up to buy a lovely Canon camera with a tripod, but that's not going to happen for a little while yet. However, I have found the perfect solution to blog on a "budget". I use my iPhone camera now, and by downloading several photography apps I am able to take high resolution pictures and edit them. Of course they might not look as great as ones taken by an actual zoom lens with a perfect flash, but they're alright. Then I was faced with another problem. It's all very well when my friend has the weekend off work and she agrees to spend several hours with me taking outfit snaps, but when I'm on my own I cannot balance my iPhone to stay put until the pictures are taken. It's so much hard work! But here's the perfect solution - a tripod designed to hold your iPhone. I didn't even know they existed! I love this little tripod, it's got flexible legs so you can not only stand in up but also wrap the legs around things like branches if you're doing an "outdoorsy" OOTD. The pictures above are taken with the help of this little guy, and I can already tell this blog is going to be blooming with outfits as I don't have to wait for help anymore! And I will now be able to do my first videos (yaaayy!)
So, in conclusion I'm getting there. Slowly but very steadily I am learning about new technology that can help new bloggers out, because we all know how tough it can be.
What camera/phone/camcorder do you use for your blog? Is there a favourite app?
