There's nothing like a major fashion event to get you to bond with your new 50mm Canon lens.  I guess I was slightly foolish to disregard the manual entirely when trying to get to grips with my camera as I still had no idea about aperture, ISO or any of the other basics of photography.  Luckily I'm one of those people who learns things by doing them over and over again and making plenty of mistakes. Even though some of these pictures are just pot luck, I am starting to understand a rough camera formula for certain situations (such as turning the wheely-thingy until it's under 100 for darkened rooms).  These photos may seem like a bit of a budget version of Tommy Ton, but this lens allows you to take close ups from afar quite easily and catch any detail that might catch your eye.

Being the latecomer I am, I almost missed the Masha Ma show.  Luckily it was running late as per and I was able to witness the exquisite construction and meticulous details from a rare front row seat

Fred Butler is changing the way I perceive jewellery, I love how her pieces are an extension of her character

  1. Wow the colors and shadow look really good. I'm an amateur photographer myself, I use a film camera so I definitely made plenty of mistakes. A lot of my photos didn't even come out, but I'm planning on buying a nikon dslr.

  2. You got some great photos - I definitely think you've got the hang of your camera!

    I did read the manual when I got mine but I have to say I didn't really understand it - I think once I'd tried stuff out I was then able to reread the manual and go 'ahh, that what they meant by that!'
