Last week, I was shot - not that literally - by Lorenzo de Wit with the assistancy of his girlfriend Chary. Although I get my picture taken all the time because of this blog, I really liked doing this. It was nice to work with a concept, to dress to a concept, and really become more of an attribute for the photographer's technique. I enjoyed being part of a more creative process - there's a world of difference between taking ordinary outfit pictures and getting directions from a photographer.
You know, I actually don't like getting my picture taken for outfit pics that much. Lots of bloggers look so relentlessly cool in their outfit posts that we're talking about magazine editorial quality. But it doesn't feel right to act like that's me. It's the reason why I smile and do crazy stuff like twirling and jumping around. I try to have fun in the process and pretending that I'm Tommy Ton worthy (lol! Must watch) isn't exactly on my fun list.. I am a high-heeled socially awkward girl that has an awful standing pose. Not to mention the exposed zippers, the spontaneously halfway unbuttoned shirts, the bangs I forget to cut (makes me look exactly like this).. I am not quite the epitome of awesome, it's often a lucky shot that makes it to the blog. Maybe I should show you the 'Mmmmeh, I don't think I would want to show that to my readers' pictures to illustrate my point......On second thought, maybe I shouldn't.
Anyway, this thing was totally different. It was more about the photographer and his ideas than about me and I liked that. Because I had to adopt a character instead of showing my personality in the pictures I changed my behavior in front of the camera. And the result even looked slightly cool! So many thanks to Lorenzo and Chary for the experience and the pictures you sent me!
