I really do have to apologise to everyone at how late this post actually is, but hey better late than never, isn't it? For those of you who follow me on Twitter/Instagram/have read a few older blog posts of mine, you'll know that me & my elder sister are always collaborating with Fashion and Photography type projects. I'm the fashion, and she's the photography! It literally works so perfectly.
Well, this photo shoot started off as a simple idea that Safina (my sister) had... She wanted to do a photo shoot that portrayed three different types of Fashion styles. East meets West, Skater & Urban. This is where I came into it... The styling! I was really excited because I've never had the chance to put my love for styling to the test and most importantly on other people... for a photo shoot.. that would be seen by lots of people. No pressure or anything! I have to admit, having the power and control over something so important for a photo shoot and seeing the end product is quite fulfilling!
Anyway, as time went on, my sisters imagination was also spiralling out of control with ideas. Within a matter of days, the photo shoot had gone from a couple of male models, to three male models, to three male and female models! The pressure was on!
To help ideas flow for the styling ideas, I used good ol' Tumblr to help give me some inspiration! I created mood boards for each model, and ran through the outfit scenarios with each of them to try and mix and match what we could & couldn't use (the models were using their own clothes you see).
The day of the shoot was a huge success but painfully cold, mid December is not the best time to do location shoots believe me! It was totally worth it though, and gave me some really good practise and knowledge with the use of my SLR and will certainly come in handy for my Fashion Styling & Photography uni module this semester!
