Trial and Tribulation

I'm very excited as this is my first post using my new camera. I'm not a professional photographer and I realized I need to learn a lot more from the pros :) I hope in the future I could take pictures as good as Tommy Ton from JakandJil. I finally got myself a tripod, and these pictures that I'm going to show you, are the first pictures that I took by myself using a tripod. I don't think it went well though, I haven't get used to the camera, the tripod, the remote, the lens, practically everything. I need to learn a lot more about the camera and need to do more practice. Please let me know what do you think of these pictures :D

Because I got home pretty late in the afternoon yesterday, I didn't have the time to put any make up on my face, I just put on what I'm going to wear pick the shoes and just shot these pictures, so no accessories too. This is my bare face, no foundation, no concealer. I thought it would be awful because I didn't get enough sleep lately and I just don't look good bare face in camera. Apparently it didn't look so bad. Hahaha God I'm such a narcissist.

As for the outfit, I fell in love with the shirt-blouse since the first time I saw it on ZARA, went to the store a week ago, they don't have my size so I tried one size bigger to see if it will fit, but it didn't. I thought, oh well.. Maybe it's not my destiny to buy this cloth. But on Sunday, I found my size at another ZARA store then I bought it kekeke.  I have this rule of shopping, but sometimes I just forget about this particular rule when I really want it bad. So the rule is to not buy impulsively. I told myself not to buy something at one go. Always try the things you want to buy, see if it fits you perfectly, see whether if there's any hole, or bad sewing, and check on the price. If the quality worths the price, and it's very cheap, and it's on sale, just go for it. BUT, if it's expensive, and it's still new, but selling out pretty fast, just let it go. Then go for a walk out from the store. If you're not thinking about it, then it's not for you. If you're still thinking about it, go to the store again, check it out again, and WALK OUT again and go home. Later on, at home, if you're still thinking about it, go to the store again, if it's still there, buy it, if it's not.. well it's not your destiny. But lately I've been ditching this rule of mine. I really need to grab on to it very tight.

    you did an amazing job to say that this is your first try, I messed up a lot of times using tripod still, I rather have the camera in my hand.
    Talking about shopping rules, maybe I should try that.
    Love what you're wearing too!! :)))

  7. You look absolutely stunning dear!
    You did a great job with the tripod, and I think you look really beautiful, even without your make up. The outfit is also amazing. Loved the shirt and the shoes! I have a similar rule, but only with items I'm not sure whether to buy them or not. If I love an item, and I have the money for it, I'm buying it without thinking it twice. hehe :)

    Do You Speak Gossip?

  29. you still look absolutely gorgeous without make up, C. I don't think a lot of people have the guts to do that. I don't think I can pull it off either. And loving the blouse and of course the shoes, it fits you, as always. Too bad neither zara nor topshop don't have my size :(
