I’ve recently realized that I really enjoy fashion. Not like styling clothes and looking all trendy… no, I need my sister for that kind of thing. I’m talking about shooting fashion work. Or mimicking fashion work.
I am one of those people that once I’ve locked into a passion, I have to learn everything I can about it and keep pushing myself. This was true in high school as well. I was a baton twirler and loved it so much that I would watch YouTube videos of other twirlers and then spend hours outside trying to learn new moves and tricks and get as good as I could be.
This is how I’ve been with photography as well. I’ve dabbled in a little bit of every kind of photography, just to say I have, and to figure out what I love most. I’ve never really been interested in studio work, mostly because when I think about studio stuff, I think about 1990s and the awkwardness that came out of that decade. I also think about JCPenny portrait studio with a family squeezed together for a picture in front of a random background. No thanks!
But recently I’ve discovered a different type of studio photography: fashion. You know, gray seamless backdrops, awesome lighting setups, celebrities looking oh so dapper in magazines. I’ve owned a backdrop stand for a long time and about a year ago I purchased some gray seamless paper, and although I tested it out once, this weekend my sister was visiting and we really went to town with it. (I can’t wait until it gets a bit warmer and we can do some stuff outside where we’re not cramped into a small office!)
I used to say I was only a natural light photographer. But then I fell in love with creating my own light.
If you or someone you know runs a boutique or clothing shop, I would absolutely love to chat about doing a shoot (not just a studio shoot, but outdoors as well). This is something I would love to pursue more, so I’d be honored if you spread the word! XOXO
