Well, I wore this.






Cardigan, scarf - Target; Top - J. Crew; Jeans - American Eagle; Boots - Arturo Chiang

I took these photos about a week ago but didn't get around to posting them because I was really unhappy with how they turned out. I'm mad at myself for not learning more about my camera and spending more time improving my shots, experimenting with the manual settings, etc. (Although it is hard to be motivated to fiddle with the camera nonstop when it is freeeeezing out and you're losing feeling in your fingers.) But anyways, I ordered a how-to book on my camera this week, so I'm hoping that will help/motivate me. If anyone knows of any good guides online for DSLRs (especially Canons) I'd love to see those too!

I'm lucky to have my boyfriend because I have absolutely no idea how to work my camera, props to you for figuring it out! And your scarf is beautiful.

Glad to see you're posting again :) It took me a while to master my Canon DSLR too, but once you get the hang of it, it'll be easy! There's a great forum online: if you have specific questions you want answered!

Best of luck! I took a 4-day SLR class a while back to help me out with the manual settings... Now my problem is it sucks messing with all the settings when it's only 20 degrees. Best of luck--I love your scarf, btw!

love the look. and as someone who went to college for photography your pics look quite well. better than others i've seen for sure. if youre looking for a good book to learn camera/lighting/etc. check out "A Short Course In Photography" by London & Stone.

i really like the simplicity of this outfit and how the scarf adds the perfect amount of visual interest! and yeah, i just learned how to use the manual settings on my camera like two weeks ago...and i've had my camera for two years. :)
