How pretty are these photos! Looking at these beauties, it reminds me of the fashion and lifestyle bloggers I used to look up to when I first started taking outfit of the days. I tried so hard, but I could never get the same beautiful effect. Most of those professional style bloggers were hiring photographers to take their shots. I’m proud to say, I took this 100% myself, with my DSLR and a Canon remote!

I would never have spoken about this back when I was taking lots of outfit shots, but taking outfit pictures caused me a lot of stress. It was a lot of hard work, taking at least a couple hours – especially since I didn’t know the key to getting a decent shot and would prefer to just take a million shots until one looked okay!

It even had me frustrated and arguing with my boy friend over it all (he hates taking photos).

But taking these shots was stress free. I found myself knowing which angle to shoot to get the light right and getting the settings perfect straight up, rather than fidgeting around.

The stress was one of the reasons why I stopped taking ootd’s as much as I used to. I’m still wearing a lot of clothes, but I wanted to enjoy wearing them. It’s a resolution for this year to start taking more outfit shots. I like looking back at my outfits and the different styles I get interested in. Last year I didn’t even have enough to do a favourite outfits of 2018 roundup post!

    I stopped taking OOTD shots too, mostly because I don’t have (and can’t afford) a decent camera and you’re right – it IS stressful if you don’t know how to get the shot you’re after.

    Maybe someday when I’m in a better place financially, I’ll be able to get the gear needed for great shots.

    love that last photo! that’s like out of a fashion magazine! There was a very brief time I took professional outfit shots because I had a pro DSLR. That broke and I didn’t want to spend the money to replace it. Taking outfit shots take FOREVER–and I’m nowhere as good a model as you, so there were maaany derpy poses I had to go through. then there’s editing. Even so, I wish I could take some outfit shots with a good camera, since I do want to share them. Camera quality is everything.

      All of the compliments! 🙂

      I loved your outfit shots (even your mobile ones! I feel like your outfits are so interesting you’d probably blow us all out of the water with a good camera. Haha.) If you’re ever in Australia, hit me up! I would take your photo in a second!
