FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What type of camera and lens do you use?
I currently use the Canon EOS Rebel T6i. This is a great camera for just starting out. However, if you want to go for the best and not have to upgrade down the line, I recommend the Canon 5D Mark iii (this is what the photographer I frequently work with uses). However you can take great photos with any camera (even your iPhone) with good lighting and composition. I do take some of my Instagram photos on my iPhone, especially when I'm on the go. So about half of my photos are taken with the Canon EOS Rebel and half with the Canon 5D mark iii, and of course a small portion of iPhone photos, as well.
I use the Canon 50mm f/1.4 fixed lens for taking my outfit photos, because it's great for creating a gorgeous blurry background. I didn't buy this lens right away, I just used the lens that came with the camera (Canon 18-55mm lens) for the first six months after I started my blog. However when I felt ready to step up my game I bought this and have been very happy with it. I'm currently planning to switch to the Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM lens and probably should have skipped the 50mm and gone right to this one.
How tall are you?
I'm 5'11". It's funny, when you are tall strangers like to remind you of this fact. I frequently have people stop me to tell me "You're really tall!". LOL. If I had a nickel for every time I heard that.
