Snapshots and Tips

{Photos from Salt Spring Island}

I've been asked a number of times about the photography on my blog, so I thought I'd share some info! I shoot with a Canon XSI and for most of my shots I use a 50mm 1.8 lens. This is super sharp lens and is good for low light shots, not to mention it's only around $100. For the most part I shoot in AV mode, and do some post processing work in lightroom or photoshop. My boyfriend takes all of my outfit shots and I take most of the other ones. 

I don't have a formal photography background, other than a few photography classes in university, but I do really love to take photos. The best advice I can give is be patient, practice and learn as much about your camera as possible!



  1. These photos are really good, I need to get myself a decent camera! x

  2. I need to practice my photography skills! - Also, I love your beautiful header! xx

  3. Your photos are lovely! :) Especially the strawberries one.
