Like most Angelenos this past week, my eyes have been glued to the weather forecast on my iPhone. This is unseasonably hot for May, but we'll save the global warming talk for another time.

While I am not always above the whims of fast fashion, this nautical-inspired outfit (selectively curated by me through


) is one of those rare occurrences. Personal style is only personal, in my opinion, when you're able to seamlessly integrate investment pieces (like my

Tom Ford Henry sunglasses



) with an eclectic mix of items and still make it you. My style has always been a mix of high and contemporary pieces, so I highly recommend perusing what's available right now on boohooMAN site - especially if you're on the fence about a particular trend.

One thing that you shouldn't skimp on, however, is the quality of your camera. I've never been much of a point-and-shoot person. My first, real camera was a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3, which I later upgraded to a Panasonic Lumix GF1, a micro fourth-thirds camera with an interchangeable lens system. They are both amazing cameras, in their own right, and I personally had a fantastic experience using them. Up until the fact that I was exposed to what a full-frame sensor could do. The main, visual objective of MYBELONGING had always been about creating immersive, cinematically-composed shots and video, and I felt strongly about investing in a camera that was geared towards photography enthusiasts versus the pro-sumer. I found that within the

Canon 6D

and decided to take the plunge.

The shots you see above are one of the first, few photo sessions using the

Canon 6D

, taken around Pershing Square and hidden alleyways of Downtown LA. For the most part, we're very pleased with the results. This is my first, DSLR ever, and I am just barely scratching the surface of the 6D's potential. Feel free to leave a comment or two below on your experience with cameras, DSLR or otherwise - any insider tips you have are greatly appreciated!
