Day one of San Diego Fashion Week was very busy since it was on a Thursday night. Rushing after work to get ready and get downtown in time + traffic is not an easy feat. Luckily my good friend Megan came with me and helped snap a few photos as the sun was going down (we almost didn't make it, it was pretty dark). This top is so much fun and I liked pairing it with hot pink lipstick. It was a toss up between this one and the top you see here but I chose the green (my favorite color :) naturally).

I was messing with my camera settings under very low light Thursday night and I wasn't very happy with the way my 5D Mark II and the 50mm 1.2L (which I borrowed from Borrow Lenses to test out) were working under these conditions. It seems like my 5D isn't very good at capturing super fast movements so a lot of the photos were blurry since the models were walking down the runway. It is most likely user error since the 5D is a real deal professional camera but I tell you, photography is a never-ending learning curve. I feel like each time I take pictures is a trial and error session. Do you feel that way too? I think just simply trying out a new lens takes some time to figure out.
