Whether you are a blogger, a stylist, makeup artist, fashion designer, photographer, or just somebody who uses images on a regular basis for promoting their work, chances are you will have had a few photo shoots under your belt.
Over the years, I have had a lot of chances to experiment with different ideas, but in terms of creativity, it need not always be a case of re-inventing the wheel to produce something unique. Once you know a few basic principles or techniques, it becomes easier to exploit them in different ways.
A friend of mine from Istanbul recently came to visit me in London. I’ve known her for some time; not usually in the context of model/ photographer, but I decided to bring my new camera (Canon 80D) along for the ride anyway.
Thinking along similar lines (pun intended) it turned out that she had brought an extra outfit – a black and white stripy Crop Top and Mini-Skirt – in addition to the striped trousers that she already had on.
I’ll be honest with you. I’ve never shopped online for clothes before, so this is a first for me. Call me old-fashioned but I actually enjoy the buzz of the high street, looking for a new outfit for a night out with the lads, and actually being able to try clothes on before I purchase them.
It’s always been especially nice to have a second opinion on new outfits too, like that of a partner or friend, so shopping online for clothes always seemed like a lonely pursuit to me.
Nevertheless, I’m sat here in front of my computer wondering what all the fuss is about and I’m going to search to see what I would buy should I ever decide to make the shift from high street to e-commerce.
