First Try... Pink Frustrations - OOTD

 Hey ladies! This is my first post using the new camera. Why didn't anyone tell me that this wouldn't be as easy as I expected? I assumed since I had a new camera I could take a few pictures and be done. WRONG. Here's how it went.

After work I went to Walmart and bought the cheapest tripod that they had. WRONG AGAIN. I got home and realized that I picked up a monopod. Ugh! The other options at Walmart were $30+, so I decided to go to Target to get one. Once I was done the sun had gone down. Getting good pictures in a park full of trees with no sun? It might not be that hard for some, but when you haven't gotten used to camera settings... it's hard. I didn't have the energy to keep playing with different settings. It was also awkward being out there by myself with my tripod. Every time I saw someone coming, I would wait to take the next picture. I took a few shots and gave up.

It's not the best quality, but I like the look of the picture. I also need to find other locations. I quickly realized that when the ground is wet, it's not the best situation for heels.
Still not the best, but it's one of the "better" pictures.
 Since I didn't get many decent shots at the park, I tried out the new setup at home. 

This is my favorite
I don't know what was going on with my scarf.

Top - Old Navy // Jeans - Levi's // Shoes - Jessica Simpson Waleo // Scarf -Walmart

 Being in front of the camera also wasn't as easy as I expected. The crazy thing about that is that I LOVE taking pictures. But it feels different trying to get the "blogger look"... y'all know that "this-is-my-serious/model-face-and-I'm-not-supposed-to-smile blogger look." Let's hope practice makes perfect!

Anyone have any helpful "photography" tips?

Thanks so much for commenting and letting me know that I'm not here alone!
