I almost never shoot by night, but when I do, it usually turns out to be so cool. I like playing with flash. The little imperfections on my face, like the deep dark circles under my eyes, suddenly don’t appear to be that bad, and I never felt so radiant…
Now for those who know how to handle a camera, this whole “light is everything thing” isn’t something new, but when you are just starting off blogging, it’s the most valuable tip I can give you: Find the light! The good light! Never in the middle of the day in summer facing the sun, try to keep the sun at the back of your head. When it’s winter, search for reflective light – this is probably my favorite of all – high buildings on which the sun reflects. Find that sweet spot and put your face in it. A few examples of working with winter-light are the ones with the Dior heels and the Valentino AW15 dress – both my favorite day-shoots ever!
Let’s not forget about what I’m actually wearing though, because this Chloe AW15 coat is E V E R Y T H I N G. I for one would love to have it in my wardrobe, but I don’t. I borrowed it for the Chloe event in NY last month. It was a de-light to wear it!
