Doc Mart Alternates

just a couple of quick shots before I started my Monday 2 days ago.. wasnt a too bad Monday at all :)

1
wearing giant shades to cover those dodgy under eye circles..
2
wishdrobe top, mom's vest, random piled necklaces, topshop leather pants, boots from China

these boots have traveled with me to quite a lot of places.. I tend to think them as my own version of Doc Marts.. I like the fact that they're not as retro as doc marts but they do have their own spunk.. plus i dont think anybody else has them !

speaking of photography, i created my own photography blog at tumblr :) please say "hi" to it if you have time..the icon for my photo blog is available 24/7 on the right sidebar :)

im thinking of getting myself either the 50mm f1/8 or 85mm f1/8 lenses for my camera. Have done some research, and people say these two lenses are fantastic for portraits with bokeh, blurry backgrounds. If you have any inputs, please tell me in the comments :)

The other half just bought a 50mm lense (i think) to do all the blurry background stuff. Its really good but you still have to fill with the settings.

i lllove that color of purple,
and ahhh your accessories are fabulous.
great outfit dear.<3

Leah said...

Get the 50mm lens Michelle. I prefer the 50mm to the 85mm. I normally use a 50mm 1.4 lens for my bokeh shots. But the 1.8 is good too.

I love your outfit... those boots are fabulous. And the piled necklace... I love!!! xoxo

I use canon too and just got 50mm f/1.8 for my birthday.
I really recommend it for you. It's one of my favorite lens :)
You can create a great "depth of field" with that lens, plus the picture will be really sharp, because it's a prime lens.
My photographer friend told me, once you master the 50mm lens, your photo result will be beyond average :)

June Paski said...

John Malvin said...

You always get food that look soo amazing. I can't wait to check out your tumblr!

Tuesday said...

My tumblr account needs some rebump too, been neglecting it for ages, I must revive it because of you :D

I would prefer 85mm, tried and tested hunnie, 50mm is a lil bit awkward to be near to the subject re: portraits, don't mind for still life though...but then again it's still your choice :)

Goodluck on your photography, I'll be always here to cheer, hurray!

GILBERT GANDA said...

the new layout looks so sweet in peach colour!

and the dotted border makes it look more cheerful!
your boots rock! since nobody have it and it has its own style!
