‘Street Style’ photographs are one of the most significant elements of fashion and style blogs. They’re my favourite part of other writers’ blogs and style posts are the most fun and the most stressful part of my own blog.
It’s a conversation that I often have with other personal-style bloggers; the awkwardness of being out in the street with a DSLR stuck on a tripod, you standing awkwardly in front of it holding your remote shutter release. All the time praying no-one brings you any attention/stops and stares/runs off with your camera. (I for one wouldn’t have a hope of chasing anyone in the outfits I choose to photograph myself in).
It really isn’t very fun and I have to be in an incredibly confident mood to wander about taking photographs of me. I know bloggers who have (seemingly adoring) boyfriends, willing to snap away to their heart’s content (pun intended), which I’m sure makes doing style posts that much easier.
But what it boils down to for me is being lucky enough to have some very patient and generous pals,
happy prepared to point a camera at me and snap away. Often in the middle of a busy street, while I’m shouting instructions at them.
I guess I just wanted to say thanks, they know who they are; this blog really would be nothing without them…
Love you guys… Xxx
