It’s all a blur to me!

Just stopping by for a quick little update on my new camera! Today I gathered all my courage and ventured outside the safety zone that is my house with my tripod. I thought this part of the woods was a safe place to get over my fear since you have to climb over a little brook to get here and the trail ends just a little behind where I stand in these photos. Wrong thinking. Two men came by walking their dogs. That one puppy almost killed my camera…
Wearing: Vero Moda skirt, Zara Cardigan, H&M dress, C&A scarf, Footwear boots
Apart from the first photo all my photos came out blurry. I can make such stupid mistakes sometimes! I left my camera in the wrong mode and forgot to check the focus. I could slap myself! I sometimes think it’s true what they say, gingers descend from blondes, haha.

    Oh no! Better luck next time 🙂 I try to check what I'm doing every 3-4 shots just to be sure nothing is set up wrong.

    At least you looked cute and you got one nice shot! Happy Thursday, Nikki

    Ziet er leuk uit 🙂

    At least you got one good photo! Plus you could always say that the blurry ones are meant to be "artistic" haha.

    cozy layers! oh tripod venturing is scary. also, glad you got some blooming tea as a gift! have you found any that isn't a green tea? Green tea isn't my favourite, and I haven't found otherwise.

    hahahahahahah unsafe tripod? :p ZALIG, btw, uwe bril ziet er in het echt nog cooler uit!

  6. 12 January 2012 / 20:03

    Oh, Nikki, don't be so hard on yourself. I've only taken a couple pictures with my tripod and they were attrocious, but I know you'll get it.

    And your outfit is fab!

    Glad that your camera survived the dog… The setting is lovely though!
    My camera only takes one photo at a time in self-timer mode, so I always check how the picture came out when I walk back to set it again… It's a pain to walk there and back, but at least I now how I'm doing. 🙂

    Aw, I am sure you will get the hang of your camera soon enough! I love your outfit. The pop of yellow is great!

    little by little.
    dont worry
    you have to try more and ore with your new toy,hehe

    At least the two photos side-by-side makes it look like an artistic choice. (: And you had an adventure shoot so the next one should be flawless, right?

  11. 13 January 2012 / 04:48

    Haha, glad your little venture turned out okay. and i've totally taken a million out of focus photos before realizing. Now I make sure to check every few frames!

    Ik vind de tweede foto nochtans iets hebben 😀

  13. 13 January 2012 / 10:07

    Leuke outfit Nikki! Maak jij al je foto's dan zelf met zelfontspanner? Want dat komt er bij dus altijd rotslecht uit 😀 …

  14. 13 January 2012 / 10:53

    Leuke outfit! Misschien moet ik dat ook eens wat meer doen, uit mijn 'comfort zone' stappen :).

  15. 13 January 2012 / 11:28

    You look so rugged up and huggable!

    Lots of love from Sydney,

    nice look and photo!

  17. 13 January 2012 / 17:55

    Ik vind die blur foto eigenlijk wel iets hebben! Leuke outfit, jij staat echt zo goed met dat mosterd-geel, wow dat ik daar ook zo geweldig mee weg kwam! xo

  18. 13 January 2012 / 19:28

    you just could start a blur movement in photography 😉

  19. 13 January 2012 / 20:19

    wauw neem jij je foto's zelf met statief? eerste keer dat ik op je blog terecht kom, daarmee 🙂

  20. 14 January 2012 / 04:36

    Even blurry, you're still cute! 🙂 I actually like how the blurry photo breaks up your outfit and makes each piece its own unique shape. & what a pretty backdrop!

  21. 14 January 2012 / 18:24

    Oh, your little adventure sounds fun! I love that blurry photograph…even if it was a mistake, it still looks fun 🙂

  22. 14 January 2012 / 20:41

    At least you know to do all those things with your camera haha, I'm so clueless about taking photos! I just kinda set it on self-timer, click, run to my spot, pose and hope for the best.

    Either way, I like your layering in this!


  23. 15 January 2012 / 09:01

    I so desperately need to get a tripod! Don't worry, you'll get the hang of it 🙂

    following 🙂

    Hope you're having a lovely day 🙂

    i hate when that happens, oh well, it will be better next time.. I think the blurry one is cool!

  25. 15 January 2012 / 23:34

    Haha At least it's reversible! My camera is doing all sorts of weird, blurry, blue, things all on it's own! It's just dying, literally, to be replaced! The blurry photo is actually pretty cool though… it would make for a great little blogger button!

    Totally love the mustard skirt and orange scarf! And even though it's blurry, that last picture is just beautiful – like colors through fog.

    Gingers descend from blondes! Haha that cracked me up

  28. 19 January 2012 / 15:25

    Lovely outfit! You have the most gorgeous scenery! I love that about your images.

    I feel so awkward taking photos of myself outside on self timer. My neighbors must think I am crazy. Anyway, glad you got a nice shot of this outfit because I am crazy about it!
