This is my end of summer and going into the autumn look. Those if I\'m honest, the day we took these photos felt like we were still in the middle of summer and Autumn was just a distant dream. ⠀
I\'m a little late to the linen dress trend that been filling up my Ig feed this summer. Still better late than never, here\'s a linen \'inspired\' dress from Primark. I say \'inspired\' as I don\'t think its strictly a linen dress and its proberbly some cheap knockoff.⠀

With Autumn just around the corner, It got me thinking of September/Autumn fashion and how I\'m looking forward to saying goodbye to my summer dresses and hello to oversize jumpers and cosy cardigan. I\'m trying to reclaim my love for the cardigan, a childhood fave of mine which I have seen to outgrown as I got older. ⠀
Starting with this Sainsbury TU embroidery cardigan which is so lovely to wear. I\'m now looking forward to wearing more cardigan throughout Autumn. Bring it on. ⠀

When your husband surprised you with a big bouquet of flowers and your first thoughts is - quick let me put on a pretty dress and take a photo of me holding it!⠀
(The only problem with that - you look tired on photos hence me hiding behind this bouquet.)⠀

A couple weeks ago, out of nowhere a butterfly flew into our home. This got me all emosh and I was certain it was an omen - a good omen. My husband just wanted it out of the house, but I wanted to keep it.⠀
⠀
This butterfly picture was at London Zoo. ⠀

There is something quite special and beautiful about nature at this time of year. Here are my photos of October golden glow.

We moved into our current place 4-5 years ago, and we only just discovered that 15 minutes away there is a nature woodland reserved area. Why have I never seen this woodland area advertise anywhere? Or even had someone mentioning it? It does strike me as odd, surely I would have noticed a 10-20 acres’ woodland area near enough on my doorstep. It completely opens for public and free to walk in, so why it surrounded in mystery, I will never know.

None the less, we decided to investigate it. Now I’m not going to bore you with how amazing this season is as I have said way too much already.

But what I’m going to talk about instead is camera. You see I majority use a Canon 600d camera, and it still a great camera and my god, I couldn’t live without it….

But, lately, I have found myself ready to move on and to progress my photography skills. So lately I have been daydreaming about using a full-frame DSLR camera.

There isn’t much difference between using my Canon 600d and a full-frame camera, except the latter, has a bigger sensor and viewfinder; hence can fit more things with a single frame.

I have always gone without a full frame camera for many years. The 600d was an upgrade from a 400d, and that again was an upgrade from a power shot camera, and if we go back even further – that was upgradedd from an old film camera. So I never needed a big powerful full frame camera.

I will go on and say that photography has always been my hobby and something I always did for fun. But then again, that how it was with blogging for many years. A hobby. And well…. now it my job, so where does this leave photography?

Still a hobby, but I have learnt one thing since going full-time blogging: photography and blogging do go hand in hand. It’s as important to have visuals – as it to have some words written down.

Which brings me back to my original point, me progressing my photography skills. Richard very kindly brought me a lens for my Canon 600d camera, a 55 mm to 1.8 lens. And I have been loving the quality of photos I have taken. I also made the switched from shooting all on jpegs to using raw files.

But now I want to go even further and start to use a full frame camera.

As some of you might know, Richard is professional photographer. Have been numbers of years and through him, I have learnt a great deal on cameras and various setting.

So he has always used a full frame camera. When I decided I have outgrown my Canon 600d and was looking into a full-frame camera. Guess who came to my rescue?

Richard very kindly lent me his Canon 5d Mark II camera, to use and to get the feel off. Trust me, a full-frame camera is a big decision as they are not cheap.

Which brings me back to the beginning, us visiting the mysterious nature woodland area. To help me get the feel of a chunkier and heavier camera, we took it there to snap some photos.

As you can see from these pictures of October golden glow, I think I have shot some decent photos. Canon 5d Mark II is aimed for outdoor photography so this was an ideal setting.

Despite me loving the quality of photos from October golden glow and I’ve been daydreaming about upgrading for a while; This won’t be my full-time camera as I still like the ease and the lightness of my Canon 600d. Like I said I can’t live without it. Canon 5d Mark II is complex and strange to use. I’m not a 100% confident to use it without my guide.

I think while I’m still learning, I will use the mixture of both cameras.

So which do you prefer shooting on, a camera much like the Canon 600d or do you prefer a full-frame DSLR camera? Or do you just use your phone camera?

    We have a golden glow October here this year. Usually, we get more of the reds and red-ish oranges, I’m not complaining because I love fall and watching how nature transform our scenery.

    I have a DSLR, but it’s a crop sensor. I have been dying to try out a full frame though! It’s on my Christmas list!
