My Blog Photography & Videography Kit...

Hey Everyone!!! Its been Almost 13-14 months i.e a year and more, I am into Blogging and making Videos on YouTube. So many people have asked me how I do my Blogs & create my Videos. Also; what all camera and equipments I use for my Blog Photos, Photos on social media like Instagram, etc and Videos. I have answered many of you through DMs, etc many times. So, I thought why not just create a blog post and make it even easier for everyone to get to know what I actually use for My Blog Photography & Videography, which will not only inspire you all but also; help to start with your career as a beginner in this field. This Kit is what  I use for my Blogs and Videos  since the beginning. Specially the camera I purchased was solely for my blogs. Also; I am really happy that I don't have to upgrade anything currently. Must say!!! Everything in this Kit I own is fabulous and works pretty well for me. :D

So let's begin with My Blog Photography & Videography Kit...

The most important equipment in My Kit, I think is the Canon EOS 700D Camera a.k.a Rebel T5i that I got from Reliance Digital, Nagpur. I use this camera ever since my first Blog. This DSLR is trusted by many professional photgraphers all over the globe. It is easy to use and has many inbuilt features that can be figured out quickly. A professional camera that gives high quality pictures or videos instantly. Though being a beginner, I could work with it comfortably in the beginning. I love using this camera and suggest many to buy it as well. I shoot all my photos with this camera, as it helps taking sharp and bright, beautiful images. Also; with the help of good features and the flip out screen, its easy to film self videos.
I use EF-S 18-55mm lens and EF-S 55-250mm lens that I got with this camera itself, when I purchased it. Both the lenses do a great job and are perfect for my Video and Blog shoots. As I am not a professional photographer these lenses work pretty well for me. This camera is around 41000-42000 INR depending upon where you buy it from. The camera is totally worth the price as it is one time investment. At least I never thought or needed to upgrade my camera so far as it gives best quality images for my work. Definitely you can buy lenses according to your requirements but I never felt the necessity to do so. Specially the EF-S 18mm lens is perfect for my Beauty Videos and product shoots.

Definitely a remote is a must to take some self portraits when one is working alone. I use Generic RC-6 IR Wireless Remote for Canon Models that I got from Amazon.in for 300 INR. This work perfectly with Canon or any other DSLR as well. This remote helps in wireless shutter release and is capable of instantly triggering the shutter without disturbing the camera and controls the speed well. It comes handy and is pocket friendly.
  A tripod is a must have when you film videos or take your own photos for balancing and stability. I use AmazonBasics 60 Inches Tripod that I obviously got from Amazon.in for 1500 INR This tripod is lightweight and easy to carry anywhere as it comes with a bag. Balances a DSLR very well. The height can be adjusted easily according to the requirements and it is super sturdy with rubber feet. Easy to mount, rotate, tilt or swivel freely. Comes really handy to me.

Ofcourse there are times when I use my iPhone 6 for my Blogs and also; work from it. Certain videos of mine, do include pictures and small video clips that I had shot on my iPhone. Sometimes when you don't require a DSLR, iPhone totally comes handy. I use iPhone 6 at present. iPhone definitely gives a HDR image and video quality. Many Bloggers and Vloggers use iPhone as well for there work. I shoot small videos or many of my casual pics on a day to day basis on my iPhone so many times. I also do editing for Instagram posts on my iPhone 6. So as I always say iPhone is the best to invest not only for pics and videos but also; for important work that can be carried out easily.

No Blogs and Videos are complete without a good laptop or desktop to work on. All my online or editing work is done from my MacBook Air which I got from Inspire, Nagpur for 79000-80000 INR approx. Its the best laptop I have ever worked on. Makes my blogging n video work easy. Whether its editing my videos or my pics, this MacBook Air  comes super handy and is quite easy to use. Also; helps transfer pics easily from my iPhone on it and vice-versa. This easy transfer and other tasks online are carried effortlessly. One of the best investments you can ever make seriously, if you have a continuous online job of being a Blogger or a YouTuber.

So thats it Everyone!!! This is My Kit that I use for Blogging and creating Videos. Definitely want to add more stuff to it. I never required much stuff in this Kit, as I think whatever I have is the best stuff so far. No upgrading of equipments is required till now. So if you guys really want to start Blogging, create Videos or start Photography, I think this Kit is good enough and is one time investment. So go ahead and give it a try.

Hope you all liked my post on My Blog Photography and Videography Kit... Please comment, share and follow. Would love to know from you all as well, what equipments you use if you are into Photography, Blogging or YouTube...

Thank you...

Love Bhagyashree...

Monochrome LookBook... 3 Chic Outfits...

Hi Everyone!!! SORRY for being back here after a long period of time. Was really busy with loads of stuff going on at a time. But I am so happy to announce that I launched my very own e-Store i.e B Beauty And Style where you can shop all my Beauty Fashion And Lifestyle related stuff online. Click here e-Store to check the store out. :)

So let's come back to the post i.e Monochrome LookBook. I wanted to share with you all 3 Chic Outfits that I created using Black & White clothes. As Monochrome Looks are classy, versatile, always in fashion and style-trends; It's really easy to create various looks by pairing basic pieces from your wardrobe. 

Hey! You can check my video as well, that was shot for the same LookBook. Click here to watch the video Style Diary | Monochrome LookBook on YouTube.

I really enjoyed creating these 3 Chic Outfits for you all. So, lets have a look at what I am wearing and how I created this Monochrome LookBook...

The first Monochrome Look is BOHO CHIC

As Boho Chic Look is everyone's favorite, I had to create one in this LookBook. Its carefree at the same time chic. Wearing loose, comfy clothes and keeping your hair messy is all you need to do to get this look. I am wearing a loose, two layered circular spaghetti top in off-white color and  I paired it with a pleated, flared palazzo pants in black color. The palazzo pants are really comfy and gives a perfect look of a Boho Chic style. The flowy top really gives a feeling and look of a carefree attitude of Boho style. I got this top for 599 INR from Brand's Republic, Nagpur and the pant is thrifted for 600 INR from a Localstore-Empress mall, Nagpur. I paired this outfit with black strap heels which gives a chic look to some extent. I got these shoes for 700 INR from Balujas, Nagpur. 
I really loved the black fringed and gold details of the bag I am carrying. It matches perfectly with the theme and entire Boho Look. The bag is from DA MILANO ITALIA which I got from Mumbai for 12999 INR. I know the bag is a bit expensive but totally rocks. To give the Boho Chic vibe, I kept my makeup bronzy and created smokey eyes. Also; I kept my hair messy and curly. I added some jewellery pieces to complete my entire look. Its on the go look that you can wear on many occasions on daily basis.

The second Monochrome Look is RETRO CHIC

No Monochrome LookBook is complete without a Retro Chic Look. Obviously, you get the best chic and classy outfit ideas from Retro Fashion. This look is completely of the 60's and is classy and chic. The white tailored shirt with black polka dots definitely brings the retro vibes in this look. Also; the short pleated skater skirt in black is super sexy, yet comfy. For this look, I tied the shirt at the front, in a knot and folded the sleeves to give a perfect retro feel, and paired it with a plain black skater skirt. The shirt I am wearing is from Forever 21, U.K for £ 8 which I already had from quite a while. The skirt is from Ginger by Lifestyle Store, Nagpur for 899 INR.
The bag I am carrying is super stylish by a French Designer Christian Lacroix, which I got from a store in U.K for £ 34 (original price 118 USD). The white wedge heels are from Balujas, Nagpur for 1200 INR. I tried keeping the hair puffy and wavy, with classic red lips and winged liner to get the retro look. Also; I added big silver hoop earrings that give the perfect 60's vibes. Definitely a good look for parties and events.

The third Monochrome Look is PARISIAN CHIC

A Parisian Chic Look is very stylish, simple, elegant and chic. Styling minimal yet classy pieces is the key to get a French Look. Polished and well tailored clothes paired with elegant bag and shoes is all you need. To create this look, I chose to wear a bold white floral print black dress. This dress is feminine, well tailored and fitted. This dress is box pleated and has a bell silhouette which makes it really feminine and chic. The floral print gives a perfect French/ Parisian look. This dress is by NANI Fashion from Bangkok, Thailand for BAHT 1000
With this dress I am wearing heels from a local store, Nagpur for 899 INR. The shoes are elegant, stylish and comfy. Also, they match the entire look pretty well. The bag I am carrying is from Atmosphere by Primark, U.K for £ 7. This bag gives a modern stylish look to the the outfit. I kept the eye makeup minimal with pink lips to get the Parisian Look. Also; I kept the hair wavy and added small braids. To accessorise I added a belt and some jewellery to this look. A perfect outfit for brunch, dinner or classy events.

So thats it everyone. As you can see these looks are super easy and comfortable. Also, many creative outfit ideas can be put together using black & white clothes. You can definitely create so many looks with clothes similar to mine.
