Flash And SequinsPosted: January 16, 2013
Here are two things you rarely see on my blog – flash photography and sequins. These photos were taken inside our garage on a particularly windy and gloomy day, so I tried playing around with the flash to see how it turned out. The result was better than I expected, but you’re not going to see any Terry Richardson-esque photos on here again if I can help it. (Honestly, I don’t see what the big deal with that guy is. His most recognizable style – putting people against a mundane background and shooting them with flash – just seems so lazy and unimaginative to me. Not to mention he’s a total sleazeball.)
As for the sequined belt, it’s my attempt to translate the texture in Gustav Klimt’s Portrait of Emilie Flöge, and so are my shoes. I know the red doesn’t go with the rest of the outfit, but they’re the only thing I have in my closet that have a bit of gold on them. I’m not a glitter/metallic kind of girl at all.
