Vogue (B&W)

Some girls look at fashion magazines and want to be the model. They imagine what it would be like to dress up in the designer clothes, have makeup applied and hair styled by a team of attentive professionals and pose for the camera.  

Me?  Although I certainly don't shy from being the center of attention, I want to be behind the camera, staging the shot and trying to capture a model's best angles.  I study the fashion magazines to better understand what makes a good fashion photoshoot:  light, camera lens, perspective, staging...  Luckily, I have some beautiful friends to be my models so I can put my knowledge into practice.

These are some of the photos from my joint fashion shoot with Katy of Sugarlaws and Jordan of Ramshackle Glam.  As I mentioned in my last post, these ladies were fabulous to shoot.  You can check out the photos in color on their blogs, but I decided to post in black & white in honor of Black & White Wednesdays at The Long Road to China.  I haven't done a black & white Wednesday for awhile -- work has gotten in the way -- but I'm happy to be able to share this week.

  1. Beautiful photos! The b&w works great here!

  2. Great shots, and I totally relate to imagining myself behind the camera!
