What cameras do you use most often and which lenses do you own?

What cameras do you use most often and which lenses do you own?
I use a Nikon D800 and I usually use my 35mm 1.4 but when I'm not using it, I have an 85mm 1.8, an 80mm tilt shift, and a 20mm 2.8.

Hi Violet! I love your hairstyle, it is absolutely gorgeous, and so girly :) how do you curl your hair?

Oh gosh! Thank you :) I curl it with my hair straightener curling back away from my face. I usually do really big curls and then brush my hair so that they all fall into place together.

I'm sure you've gotten this question a million times, but what kind of camera do you use for all the videos on your vimeo?

No problem! I use the same camera that I take all my pictures with. My Nikon D800. I use my 35mm 1.4 predominately for video, but I also use an 85mm 1.8 and an 80mm tilt shift for video! :)

Hi Violet. For someone not connected with other Blythe fans, how would you suggest trying to connect with those who might live in my area? I am hoping to find Blythe enthusiasts in southern Wisconsin.

Oh how fun! I will tell you that the Blythe community is very heavily involved with Flickr. Most Blythe lovers are on there and use it as a tool to meet others and plan "meet ups". I personally know of some Blythe enthusiasts in Michigan and Illinois so I'm sure there's plenty your way. Best way would be to start searching Flickr groups for Blythe lovers or simply search "Blythe doll Wisconsin" on Flickr. I'm sure you will find lots of cool people :)

Hello, Violet. Love the blog! I also love your unique style! Where do you do most of your shopping for clothing? :)

Oh thank you ^_^ You're too sweet! Lately it's been Romwe, Chicwish, Free People and Urban Outfitters. I looove shopping clearance racks anywhere. I frequent thrift store and garage sale clothes quite a bit. I also have a weakness for Target, h&m and forever 21. Haha!

Hi, Violet, your blog and photography is to die for! If you don't mind me asking, where do you purchase your photo books used for bridal shows, portfolio, etc.?

Oh thank you so so much :) I bought some from a couple different places, but my favorite books are from Blurb.com

what are some tips you have for new bloggers?

Laura Murray
I'd say post often, create original content as much as possible, be unique and focus on what you are good at (the main topic or purpose of your blog), network with other bloggers and go the extra mile to make any pictures you post really nice. Having good photographs can really make or break your blog content. And they don't need to be professional pictures or taken with a fancy camera. Just learn the basics to good photography and apply it as much as possible. Hope that helps! :D

Hi Violet, Even though I'm one of your sponsors this month(yay), I have a question for you. I just got my first press mention this week, and wanted to try to reach out to other press options while it's fresh. Are there tips for getting mentioned on other blogs or media outlets? Thanks, Andi

One of the best ways to get your content noticed and in turn posted and shared on other outlets is to submit your content to websites/blogs. Try guest posting OR submit your projects, recipes, fashion, or home related posts to craftgawker.com, foodgawker.com, stylegawker.com and dwellinggawker.com. I have gotten a lot of attention lately from submitting my content to those sites.
