January 21, 2015

I caught a pretty bad and stubborn virus which keeps me stuck on the couch since Monday with nothing but a huge blanket, my favorites tv shows and my macbook equipped with a side bar including my favorite and usually very tempting online stores. Such boredom might result in rash shopping, except that the majority of the shops still have their clearance going on and I’m not very much into what’s left, so no major danger for the bank account. Phew.

Either way I have a bunch of snaps straight from the camera for you, and some of them came into existence during a gym-shoot with my sister last week. I’m quite pleased with the result and so is the brand we were shooting for. In case you like their work-out clothes as much as I do, you can use the code LIFTINGFAIRY10 to get 10%off  on your order.

It really fills me with so much joy to get a positive feedback on my photography. I know that there’s always room for improvement, which is why I did not only spend time on Asos, Nelly and co. these past days, but I also read through various forums to get those little shooting tips that make a difference.

As always I used my Canon EOS600D with the 50mm 1.4 lens. IMG_1137 IMG_0787 IMG_0671 IMG_1030-1 (verschoben)IMG_1404

    Nice shots! I finally got a 50mm lens. It makes such a difference, but now I just need some sunshine!

    • Reply Sammie January 23, 2015 at 2:29 pm

      Believe me, you will love that lens. It’s brilliant and so much fun to shoot with,especially if you’re playing a bit with the AV,aperture mode :)
