Outfit: Snowdrop Walk

snowdrop walk, snowdrops, the argory,northern ireland

Snowdrops are one of the first signs of spring, so when Thomas's mother told us the snowdrops were blooming we knew we had to pay a visit to the Argory for their lovely "snowdrop walk." As the snowdrops start to blossom here in force you almost feel as if you could be walking on a white carpet of their petals. We took care not to crush these flowers however, but snapped a few photographs around them on a lovely, sunny day. It's still too cold to go without a coat, but I'll take the snowdrops as one more promise that spring is on its way and warmer weather with it!
Minus the coat outfit is how I'd like to dress with my blue hair nearly everyday. Not because I don't like the coat (it's lovely and so soft!) but because I'm just sick of coats and tights and layers in general. Just give me all soft tones and a flowing dress so I can feel like a spring fairy! I've been trying to not buy a load of clothes to "match" my new hair since I won't be blue forever, but I couldn't resist this maxi dress especially since I got it on sale. I found it through Love The Sales; a site that gathers sales from over 500 retailers into one spot for you to browse. It can overwhelming in the options (so many stores!), but it has lots of tools to narrow your search and it's so handy if you're looking for a deal and want to resist buying new and full-price pieces. I can't wait to wear this dress on a summer day, barefoot along some sunny shore...

Does Thomas have any tips for getting the images so clear and sharp? Also, what camera/lens does he use?

Oh, I used to love spotting snow drops at the park!
They're basically the symbol that warmer days will come my way and that's always good news.
Love these shots, btw! With the snow drops glowing, you look like a true fairy princess ;)

@Alexandra Marie, So it's a combination of things: manual focus, the light, editing, etc. Thomas's pictures always stand out because he is able to manually focus; he's also fully manual on his other settings as well--a high ISO always helps for clearer & sharper images. Two the light makes a difference, shooting backlit on a bright day like this means it's going to be sharper and cleaner than any picture he can get on a cloudy day (which is what we usually shoot in). I think the last main point for this set was also the editing; vintage editing (which I normally do) muddies colors and softens images, but I'm working on editing truer colors lately so bringing up the contrast, not muddying the colors, etc also leads to a cleaner & bright image.
All pictures on my blog are taken with the same camera--Canon Mark with a 50mm lens (unless we use the fisheye lens). We only have one camera which we both share, so it's not a difference of equipment but rather the fact he's going manual with his settings and focus (things you have less control of when shooting with a tripod!).
