I’m not a fashion expert. I like food, and fitness. My favourite magazines are Delicious. and Women’s Health, not Vogue, not Elle.
However, despite my lack of expertise, I’m still very fond of it. Being into photography, I can’t really resist scrolling down fashion blogs and admire not only the composition of the outfits but also the composition of the photos. Whether it is pictures of food, landscapes, or clothes on a person, photography remains the same: work of composition, light and colours.
Other film photographers will be able to understand my issue when I came back to London to develop a few rolls of film and still had about 10 exposures left in my Pentax K1000. I knew I had pictures of Paris I really wanted to be processed but I had to finish what was left in the cannister before heading to my photo service shop.
Like in Paris, the colours in London this time of year are absolutely breath taking and I thus dragged my sister out to find a pretty spot and take some shots. We found the perfect place off King’s Road and got started.
I had never really shot with a “model” and it was the funniest experience figuring out what poses she should do, yelling “look to the left, smile, look natural, take off the glasses!”
This isn’t really a fashion post:
1- I’m not going to showcase the elements of my sister’s outfit as most items are really old and certainly not avilable anymore but if you should know they’re for the most part from Topshop
2- Like I said, I’m not a fashion expert and I was just playing with my camera. I’m quite happy with the results and might do more photos like these.
I really just wanted to take advantage of fall colours in London but make my photos a little more exciting using my sister as a model. I hope you enjoy the shots!
