One day I’m going to write a post about why I could never be exclusively a personal style blogger, and this post will be a prime example of why. I favor comfort and cleanliness over fashion, and even though I can come up with like thirty interesting outfits made up of the clothes in my closet, I still only wear, like, six. I will also remind you all that I had to issue myself an Instagram challenge to start wearing my jewelry, and I’ve totally fizzled out by now. Most of it is in pouches in my backpack in my suitcase in my closet. Layers upon layers of “you really don’t even remember you have this stuff, do you?”
The facts behind this post are these: 1) I had new glasses to show off. 2) I wanted to try my 50mm lens on full-body portraits. 3) My mom was coming with me to the doctor, so she could help out, and I wasn’t going to let that opportunity pass me by.
And so: this is me, feeling out my 50mm lens. I learned a little bit about it, and I was also reminded that my mom is spectacularly good at focusing on the background instead of me. She was a sweetheart, though, and put up with me and even let me snap some shots of her, which she won’t let me post (mom!) but which were good for me to test out the new lens as well.
There’s room for improvement, obvs, but overall I’m smitten with the lens! Now I just need to like, move back to London so I can shoot actual people. Easy.
