Happy Monday, everyone! As each of these photo styling challenges come and go, I’m finding that I’m learning more than just how to take a good photograph (though seeing all of the other photograph submissions, and the creative ways of interpreting the challenges, really does a lot for my own inspiration when I’m staging a shoot).
Starting off the month with a post, a post that I HAVE to do, really ingrains in me a sense of time, especially passing time. I really can’t believe how fast I’ve gone through these challenges, and when I think about where I was in my life when I started posting them and where I am now, it’s enough to cause me to pause and ruminate on something that really has nothing to do with the topic of the day, which is FASHION!
When I first started posting for this challenge (which I found serendipitously on RedesignedbyM‘s blog) I had just moved down to Louisiana and my husband had gone back to the North to finish up his time with the Navy. Now, I’m almost finished with my first year as a PhD student, and Keegan and I have finally been living together for a good five months (and we haven’t tried to kill one another, so I guess we’re in it for the long haul). Time is a funny thing, and as I get older, I’ve become more aware of how fast it goes by. It seems that each time I try to grab a hold of it and make each moment last, fate chuckles and speeds things up. I guess that’s why I have taken to blogging as a sort of documentation of the past, a journal meets photo album of my life.
Okay, back to the actual subject of the post. I took these photos outside on a lovely day here in South Louisiana. The sun was shining and many of the trees have bloomed, so I decided to use nature as my inspiration. While I was hoping that my husband would pose for me, he was out in the country participating in a Mardi Gras parade. So, what’s a girl to use when the topic is fashion and she has no models? Well, shoes, of course!
I’m still working with my iPhone, but I’m neck deep in camera research, so one day, one day…
