In the daylight anywhere feels like home

19 Mar

I don’t know about everyone else but besides for these photo shoots I had one of those weekends where I just didn’t want to do anything but sleep or lounge.  I’ve been on the go so much that I was really looking forward to decompressing.  Instead of going out to a pub on St. Patrick’s Day I decided to try to hone some of my creative thoughts with other creative masterminds.

For a while now I’ve had some photo ideas that I wanted to try to put to life.  I scoped two locations that I thought would be cool for another run at fashion photos and asked my friend Lesly (who models) and Henry (who is a very talented photographer) to come along.  There were many behind the scenes stories and many more photos that I will show throughout the week.  Here’s a preview of what’s to come!

Lesly rocking this $9.00 Forever21 gown (no joke, this was an amazingly elegant look for less than what your lunch probably cost!).  This lush canopied way was someones driveway I’d seen driving by earlier.  Thankfully no one thought it was weird that we wanted to shoot some photos there 🙂

The next spot for shooting was this vibrant field.  This is me in a Forever21 dress as well which you will see better in the next posts.  The hat is from Haight St in San Francisco for under $10 and the necklace (unseen here) I made which I will feature this week, too.

Both of these shots were taken with my Canon 60D but Henry took some amazing photos with his Canon 5D MarkII and some amazing lenses.  I’ll make sure to let you know the settings and what has been done post production.  Lots of good things on the horizon so Happy Monday to everybody!

    Great shots and I must admit, I really like seeing women in floppy hats that barely shows their eyes. It creates a mystery about them. I am also looking forward to more shots of that field. Thanks for sharing.
