La Portrait at LAHAUS

Hello all, sorry it has been a couple of weeks since my last post! I wish I could say I have been too busy to post but honestly it is more of a motivation issue than a time issue. I have a few things in the works that I want to share with you though, starting with this portrait session I did with Running in Chanel a couple of weeks ago.

We went to the beautiful LAHAUS Creative Studio for a neutral but pretty background.

We took quite a few portrait shots to get the right one but I think the way the light catches the eyes in the two above turned out really nicely. Portrait shooting is quite different to what I have been doing and so it has been a bit of a learning curve. As usual though, I love the learning process!

Luckily, we also did some photos with the clothes, which I am more familiar with!

The textures of the space with the textures of the clothes were really fun to photograph.

Despite this shoot being straight forward in required content I felt like the different textures in the location and within the clothes helped to give the feeling of a more diverse range of photos.

Lahaus (1 of 1)It is so much fun shooting in new places! Every time I go on a shoot I feel like I discover something new about our little town. Thank you to LAHAUS Creative Studio for the space.

To tomorrow, (or at least hopefully not another two weeks)

Flowers and Pillars Galore

Following on from last weeks jeans post (Stairway to Structure) we also shot this outfit at ECU in Joondalup and those who have been to or past the uni will easily recognise the entrance to the admin building. P1070640Close up this building provided an interesting backdrop with the wooden/steel pillars stacked each side of the walkway. Photographically it was a nice way of leading the eye to Juvelle and through to the rest of the photo.P1070660I think, though that this building really has more to offer architecturally when you can view it as a whole. I took a few detail shots but could not do the whole thing justice without using my wide angle lens.

For Running in Chanel and I the details just looked great as part of the photo to showcase the outfit.

And of course we needed to get a close up of those super cool jeans.P1070646

Stairway to Structure

How’s this cold Wednesday going for you? Fancy some fashion photos to warm the soul? Coming right up. jeans7 (1 of 1)This was another shoot with Running in Chanel, this time it was all about jeans. The first outfit was paired with this oversized cardigan and the loose knit looked great against the structured stairs of the ECU stadium.jeans1 (1 of 1)

Of course you cannot go past the Girlboss t-shirt! Aside from the fact that Juvelle is a bit of a Perth girlboss herself, the t-shirt’s message with her standing strong in the empty stands is a powerful image. jeans8 (1 of 1)And of course the jeans, the red background gave the blue denim a good amount of space in the photos.jeans4 (1 of 1)jeans3 (1 of 1)The ECU Stadium was a great place to shoot; it was easy to create leading lines within the photos and the structure of the stairs added additional depth. The red concrete was quite bold but worked well with the toned down colours of the outfit.

We shot the second outfit in the mouth of the admin building, which again was not short of leading lines and structure. But you’ll have to wait for next time to see that one.

To tomorrow,

Ellen

 

Metallics vs Nature Part 3

This is the final instalment of Metallics vs Nature! I know you’re disappointed but don’t worry, I have many more fashion shoots ready for you to enjoy after this one.

For this particular Metallic outfit I was really getting a warrior vibe and loved the look we created of Juvelle standing in the bush like she was on the hunt.metallicshirt7 (1 of 1)

Trying to find the right angle is always a process and my favourite angle for this outfit was looking up at Juvelle with the overcast sky behind her. However, this did mean crawling around in the grass for most of the shoot!

I also loved how from this angle the grass at the front kind of snuck into the photo in a non-obtrusive way.

I love it when you find an angle that just works! And sometimes that does mean getting yourself into some strange spots, but it is always worth it! And the grass stains in my jeans came out eventually.

As usual, if you want to check out Juvelle’s styling of this shoot and her post on metallics go to Running in Chanel. Feel free to also check out Metallics vs Nature (pt 1) and Metallics vs Nature (pt 2).

I would love to hear from you guys also! What tricky spots have you gotten yourself into just to get the right shot?

To tomorrow,

Ellen

Metallics vs Nature (pt 2)

I know you have all been waiting very patiently for the next instalment of Metallics vs Nature Part 2, so here it is! If you missed Part 1, see it here.

As I said in Part 1, we loved the idea of metallics in a wild setting and so here we landed. I was hoping to have some dry Aussie grass to match in with the gold skirt but lucky for Joondalup Lake the grass is currently looking very lush, and luckily for us the lush green worked also.goldskirt1 (1 of 1)goldskirt3 (1 of 1)It was soon clear that this skirt was made for twirling; cue a spinning Juvelle.

We also had to get some close ups of the beautiful detailing on the skirt and top.
