Hello everyone! ♥
I miss doing more in depth shoots like this one for my outfits. Truth be told, it's not nearly as much fun to just stand in the exact same patch of uninspiring woods every day and go into the same poses over and over again....it's just not as inspiring as going to a place that fits the feel of my outfit and I can become a 'character' (as silly as that sounds). But it's true. It's fun to feel like someone else when I take outfit pictures and to put together photos that I feel proud of.
It's just not plausible during the winter time to take longer shoots like this and to travel different places. I can hardly stand outside more than 10 minutes, so a 20 minute walk to a location itself is definitely out of the question. My campus is super inspiring and has all sorts of interesting architecture to examine and explore and take photos by. I almost always wait until the weekend though to take pictures amongst campus though so that there's no one milling about--it's too awkward for words running back and forth with a tripod taking pictures of yourself, let alone dozens of students coming out of class and watching you do that.
I felt really ambitious to take these yesterday and well, ha, I was a bit too ambitious. It was too cold out to be dressed like this and far too windy-- but I'm glad that I got out and took photos I'm proud of for the first time in awhile. I'm looking forward to going home this coming weekend for my spring break so I can get back to my lovely little hometown forest and do all the adventuring I want.
Simply can't wait! x
With much love, Lauren.
