Photography by Ellen Rogers
I’m currently doing a styling project at university at the moment, which means I have been looking through lots and lots of editorials, getting as much inspiration as possible – something which I’m really enjoying because I love fashion photography! This is the main reason why I have joined Tumblr (follow me if you like!); its a great place to store inspiration and beautiful photos – a godsend when, like me, you’re a bit wary of loading up your laptop with hundreds of files!
Today, we had some help from fab stylist Kim Howells, who has worked on various shoots for Dazed and Confused, as well as music videos and whatnot. Whilst giving my friend and I some tips for the shoot we’ll be doing in November, she showed us a shoot she had worked on for Piers Atkinson S/S 2011, which I have totally fallen in love with. The perfect mix of romance and gothic style (one of my absolute favourite combinations!) everything about this shoot is wonderfully like a dark fairytale. The perfect shoot for a closet-goth girl like me, haha : ) Isn’t the spidery head piece amazing?! If you’d like to see the rest of the set, you can view them here!
The main fun of photography has always been the oh-so-necessary Photoshopping session afterwards, which is another reason why I love this set. I don’t really like ‘straightforward’ photographs so much, and with all the technologies available to use today, I think people shouldn’t be scared to be a bit more experimental when it comes to post production! But that’s just my opinion; people are of course, free to create whatever they love – which is why the creative industries are so exciting to me!
Thanks again to all of you who continue to read my blog – I’m glad to be back, and am enjoying it more than ever, thanks in large part to all of you lovely people : ) take care everybody!
