Primary Colors

was getting bored of monochromatic outfit. so i wore something more vibrant. and what better way to break up my usual color combos other than wearing all three primary colors (that's red, yellow, and blue if you don't know..) ?

Club Monaco double breasted jacket, Mitchybelle longer-back top, unbranded tights, random bangles, Tod's Navy Flats (yes I'm wearing flats!)
not too sure if the look suits me.. but this is my style blog and one of the purpose is to explore the different things that work for me . so I'm open to your critiques and comments :)
I really love the ruched back details very much ! just as I was posting this up, I've just realized that I forgot to take the picture of the shoes and accessories..

many of you asked in the previous post what DSLR I got. I got the Canon EOS 500D with the standard 18-55mm lenses. before i close up this post, I'd like to share you a few shots I've done using my new camera :D it's harder to operate than I thought. but I hope I'm getting better at it !
my boyfriend took this shot of Simba :D Not a bad angle for a first timer.. I just tweaked some of the colors on photoshop to make the tonality look better..
sorry for the doggie pict spam.. they were the only "models" i could use at the moment.. you can click on the pictures to enlarge them :D
can guess what this is ? ;)
playing around with aperture settings..

ps* mind for exchange link ? :)

mom & son said...

Wow! Loving the vibrant colors of your outfit, sweetie!
They remind me of our national flag.

t a l i s h a said...

are those your necklace collection babe? anywayy you rock in colors! the first and hopefully the last time i wore red tights was when i did this modern dance competition back in high school.. we won so it paid off coz my thighs look humongous.. but look at you.. so chic.. very 'shopaholic takes manhattan' kinda look ..:)

Robyn said...

Hehe, I totally tend to do the same thing-- when I go for color, I GO FOR COLOR. LOL. It's either black and white or all colors for me it seems... somehow a color with a neutral looks harsher to me than 2 or 3 colors together.

Fun puppy shots. What natural little models! ;-)


Anita Putri said...

really?? unfortunately i did not see and I also do not know how to contact you.
fortunately you do not wear green, if you wear green you could be like traffic lights .. hahaha:)

FASHIONconfectionairy said...

What a pleasent suprise of Andy Warhol colours, definitley brightened my day.

projectvee said...

this is really unique! love how bright you look - i'm sure you attracted a lot of attention :)

pensandlens said...

Great photos babe, I had my 400d before but sold it here in Bangkok and on the day I sold it I bought my 500d replacement for an upgrade the sad and traumatic thing was I was mugged while going to a friends place, all the items that I bought that day were stolen plus the guy gave me a swollen face and lips with bruises.

But I am okay now, thank you to the Thai facial injections my face is back to it's normal state just waiting for the bruises to disappear.


Regarding the butterfly picture. I usually use the manual and TV (shutter priority AE shooting modes.)

and I switch from manual focus or auto focus with my lens to get closer to the object.

For 500d I think you need to set your camera on the modes:Auto, Manual flash on/off mode.

I don't usually use the flash in the morning and I use the TV and Manual shootings modes.

For Auto, portrait, landscape, close up and night portrait the flash is always on at those settings.

So might as well do with the Program AE (P), the (TV) and the (AV), and especially the manual.

for lights in the evening I usually use TV and manual.

Try to change also the shutter speed so that you can take many photos all at once...

just try to do auto focus first and flash off...I cant really explain unless I am holding the gadget. but it works the same with the 400d but more improvements.

try not to do the auto shooting modes.

You can change the sharpness contrast and the metering in the LCD menu. Also you can set the ISO if it's too bright or dark.

When I started shooting macro I did the same thing, but when I tried the manual modes and experimented with the TV mode I got the perfect macro butterfly picture.

hope it helps.

you can ask me anything.

For the mean time I am happy with your new camera...while I go save for another camera and I will have someone to accompany me for assurance that I will not be mugged again.

This is the longest comment ever.

Hope you understand what I mean.

Take care my dear

Valencia Lia said...

The back drape with your top is just gorgeous. Anything draping I'm just so in love now.
And I'm so happy you've gotten your very own DSLR now. Just play around and have fun with it. you'll get the hang of it very soon.
