Blinding sun or frigid shadow?

So often when I can get a chance to take photos is not in the "prime time".  More often then not Golden hour is not a time that I have free, at least not in the winter.  So often I see successful bloggers say that the biggest thing about getting a great/popular blog is great photos from a great camera.  Beneficially because of my wedding photography business I have a good one but I am here to tell you that your point and shoot camera can take great photos.  I'm a huge proponent of start where you are and move up from there.  If you can't work what you have what makes you think that you'll be able to work something larger?  Every point and shoot camera has menu settings.  Play with them.  Actually read the manual.  You can mess with your white balance (the color base for the photo, like when you take pictures in cloudy weather and it turns out bluish, white balance is what you need to change), you can change your ISO, higher numbers allow you to take photos in less light without a flash but can turn the picture grainy).  There is so much stuff that is customizable on the camera you already have: play with it!  Even if you don't have the best lighting, the best equipment it is YOU in the shot that makes the difference.  There are thousands of ladies, and gents who have "look at my clothes" blogs: sell "you".

Got the tights from Khols with khols bucks: free.  Have had the shoes and scarf: gift (from my loving mother in law), Got the dress and shirt from a give away bag from my sister: free

So total cost for this outfit: gas to go to khols.  Got to love it!
