The Floor ScrapersPosted: May 19, 2014
My outfit for this week’s SIA, inspired by Gustave Caillebotte’s “The Floor Scrapers“, is pretty straightforward. As soon as I saw the painting I know I wanted to wear this striped shirt, and then the pants were chosen for the color of the wall and the brooch to mimic the ironwork on the window/door in the background. It was the shoes that I’m kinda iffy about, but I just got these and they are so freaking comfy that I can’t stop wearing them, and besides, they fit with the color scheme.
Speaking of colors, I’m still trying to figure out how to make the photos look consistent from post to post, and I can’t seem to get the exposure right. I thought shooting in RAW would fix all that but apparently it still depends more on the lighting. Man, if nothing else, I hope this heat wave will end soon so I can get some diffuse sunlight for my photos again.
P/S: Don’t forget to stop by Animated Cardigan to see other looks inspired by this painting!
