My First Public 'Photoshoot'

Monday, November 12, 2012

Happy Monday, everyone! I have a funny story to share with you all about this little post.

I am taking baby steps to try and work my way towards branching out and taking outfit posts in more public areas, where I can find pretty backdrops to photograph my clothes against. Over the weekend, I decided to take my little camera down to the common areas in my apartment, to get a few pictures of an outfit I put together.

I had tried photographing the clothes indoors at first, but I felt like the pictures needed more natural light, and I thought a little breezy wind wouldn't hurt either :)

This is a picture from the first shoot I tried indoors. Low chignon tutorial coming soon!

J and the littlest sis kindly agreed to help me photograph my clothes, and so off we went. Unfortunately, there are some hotel guests preparing for the races out on their balconies, which overlooked the common areas. They were all good-natured, of course, but it made me incredibly embarrassed when these ladies started cat-calling down at us, and I could feel my face burning up!

Needless to say, we moved off to a quieter area after, but I think I managed to get some decent shots anyway...I hope? :)
