Day Three: Chictopia10 Media Tech Summit

This past Sunday was the Chictopia10 Media Tech Summit and it was definitely an experience to remember.  After hearing not so rave reviews about last year's Chictopia event, I was a little bit hesitant to set my expectations too high.  Luckily the conference was pretty damn amazing and I really enjoyed all the panelists - there was a variety of speakers from google, twitter, modcloth, and even a handful of bloggers. The lunch was also pretty fantastic and I couldn't get enough of the pasta. I really learned a lot in terms of reaching out to your readers and branding your blog. The speakers that Chictopia invited really knew what they were talking about and had plenty to share. I have to admit though - I wasn't exactly paying attention some of the time since I wasn't too interested in taking my blog in the direction they were suggesting. I love what I'm doing with my blog right now and I'm content with keeping it as is. :)

My favorite part of the conference was definitely getting to meet so many amazing bloggers (many of whose blogs are my daily reads). These girls are even more amazing than I expected them to be. Being fashion bloggers, we of course camera whored ourselves and each other around NYC. My favorite shots are always the candids, especially the one above of me and Starr. I have no idea what we were talking about but I'm sure it was amusing, haha. I'm also loving the candid of Lucy from Dear Fish Vintage down below. Can I just say she's got amazing style?

The picture above of Jasmine and Chantal is one of my favorite shots I took that day. They're both so adorable and they're also down to earth, which goes for all the other bloggers I got to meet this past weekend.

It rained a little bit on Sunday (notice the umbrellas - especially Jenny's badass parasol) and the wind was a little bit crazy at times. It made for some awesome photos though. There's nothing wrong with a little bit of drizzle...well, until it gets on your camera. I used to drag around my old camera in the rain, onto the beach, you name it. It wasn't so bad at first, but in the long-run it damaged the innards of the camera body so I'm learning to be a lot more careful with my equipment.

I also got to meet Emily from Adelaide Stayed at the Chictopia conference and let me tell you, she's gorgeous in pictures and a million times more gorgeous in person! She also got lucky and won the iPad giveaway courtesy of The Find. Jealous? YES.

Another one of the many bloggers I met was Tieka from Selective Potential. She's a sweetheart and I snapped a shot of her and Jasmine. The lighting wasn't the best and I kept on forgetting to set my white balance but I'm getting better at remembering!

Well I'm gonna peace out and clock out of work (yes, I'm blogging at work). I'm meeting up with some friends for dinner and then going to shoot an event (the guy behind Texts From Last Night is speaking at Rutgers)! :)
