Photography Styling Challenge- Fashion

10 Comments

fashion4I thought I was setting myself up for failure with this month’s styling challenge topic, Fashion. Although I am not all the way up there with couture and all the trend there is to keep up with, I can claim one thing with a clear conscience- I am not all that oblivious either. But styling for a full post that is going to revolve around that seven-lettered word intimidated me. I am not lying when I say that I started mulling over this concept since the February edition of PSC went up.

The first thing I decided on was my muse. Now, I know. A muse should come to you, you don’t get to make that choice. But mine is a very awkward, very shy model and I had to coax, threaten (which bordered on abuse) and bribe him with Thai Red Curry to agree. So after blackmailing him for a few days, the hub-man finally gave in. There was only one problem- he couldn’t care less about fashion. He is oblivious to trends (why shouldn’t he be?) and if it wasn’t for me, his wardrobe would be full of clothes that fall under one of the four color categories- black, white, grey and blue. Although he does end up looking good in what he wears most of the times, I am a color person.
fashion2We had a couple of beautiful days last weekend, thank you, Alabama. So we made the most of the Saturday by going to the park. Apart from getting wonderful shots of Little Miss Bee, I managed to get satisfactory shots of my muse flaunting his shades. I admit that this shoot bordered on minimalism- no extra props and all that- but it came out better than we feared it would. I had to catch Kishore unawares a couple of times but I ended up with good pics.
fashionfashion3I always knew that we were an awesome team! πŸ™‚

Ps: my hovering image probably killed the first picture. I must learn to fade out of my pictures while shooting shiny stuff.

  1. Good thing your hubby was game for the shoot! And it came out great. I actually love seeing photos that capture the photographer’s reflection on sunglasses and other shiny surfaces. Weird, but kind of cute, right?
    Your title shot is very catchy too, Vaish.

  2. I agree with Anjana πŸ™‚ I love photo’s that capture the photographer in their reflection.
    Well done on convincing hubby, there was also a great deal of bribing going on for my shoot.
    These pictures have a very Hugo Boss feel to them (I’m sure your hubby would enjoy hearing that!). Great work Vaish! x

  3. Cool pictures Vaishnavi! Lucky you… for having such a great muse!

  4. Great pictures Vaishnavi! Lucky you… for such an understanding muse!

  5. Great pics Vaish. I like the last one best, your husband looks like a cool dude.
