Today, my outdoor shots were foiled by the weather actually being too nice for pictures! (Bright afternoon sun is not conducive to taking good outfit photos. At all.) I love fashion photography, but since basic head-to-toe shots would have been a bit repetitive without the whole outdoor gear getup I had on earlier today, I thought I'd practice making the indoor shots in more of a narrative style. Would love to start playing with cinematic photography at some point.

Let me tell you, framing (and focusing) this kind of thing is really difficult when you're doing self portraits, though!

I almost want to put little black boxes around these, like in screencaps. Or maybe play around with cinematic colors.


dress: F21
tights: Lord&Taylors
shoes: Charlotte Russe
bag: Dandelion Daydreamer
hat: Contempo Casual, back in the 90s!

Next project: redecorate bedroom so that it does not look like a little girl lives there.

Lovely! I love the indoor photo session :) Re: the hair from my post -- it's very easy. I just washed it and dried it until it was mostly dry, then braided about six braids into it and let them sit for about two hours. Then I undid the braids so the left loose crimps (so it would be all medieval) and then I just braided two inch sections on either side of my temples and pinned them like milkmaid braids, only positioned further back on the head. Wow, that doesn't SOUND simple. But it was :) I hope that helps!
