New projects, things to look forward to!

Fashion

Hello! I’m in an excited mood at the moment but also a stressful one… I think its important to have a certain amount of stress in your life otherwise its all pretty mundane.

I’m back at uni and we already have so much work to do. I’m currently working on a 6 week project on street style in London. We have to choose an area of London that’s trendy and interesting, then go and photograph people there. I’m trying to visit Shoreditch this coming Wednesday but I think the weather might let me down. This rain is constant over here in England!

Here are some interesting concepts of different street styles and how its photographed.

Japanese Street Style

Japanese street style

It’s become an interest to everyone, even people that don’t have a specific interest in fashion. The Japanese street style is so unique, and sort of surreal. Pat Lyttle’s book ‘Japanese street style’ is available on Amazon as a paperback.

The Sartorialist

Most people who surf fashion Blogs will have heard of this well known street style photographer. Scott Schuman’s work has also been featured in magazines like GQ and Italian Vogue, along with ad campaigns for DKNY, Gant etc. The way he captures people is really interesting and his collection of images are all so diverse there’s a style for everyone.

Lace top meets leather leggings – a couple that couldn’t be more different but as you know for sure: opposites attract.

We’ll be ‘trick or treating’ in this logo tee!

Topshop

If your not already following them on tumblr or facebook then you definitely should do! I’m sure you are… So many well dressed people, so much clothing envy!

I also have a dissertation idea! So far, I want to do a fashion film inspired by Alfred Hitchcocks ‘The Birds’.

And I cannot wait for the BBC 2 film  depicting the manipulative nature of Alfred Hitchcock’s relationship with actress Tippi Hedren. Sienna Miller plays Tippi. I’m not sure when its on but it sounds so interesting. The film is said to suggest Hitchcock blackmailed her into having sex with him by threatening her career.

Thanks for reading! I’ll be updating the blog with progress on my projects shortly. As always any thoughts and comments are very welcome.

Some previews of my shoot!

My photography

Hello, i’m so sorry I haven’t posted in so long! iv’e been extremely busy with my new job and my uni work. Speaking of which I thought I would post some of my page designs for my project!

As some of you may know I have been planning a photo shoot based on the fashion trend print. I finally got round to doing it a few days ago and am now working on the editing. Here are some potential page designs… please let me know what you think!

I did the shoot in my house because it was raining, even though I planned to do it outside… but it turned out quite well considering. All the flower photographs were taken in my back garden.

Erdem pre fall 2012

The various printed fabric trends at the moment are so exciting, they have to be my favorite trend this year. So much variation and colour! From paisley to photo based prints, there is something for everyone.

I am basing my 2nd year photography project around this trend because of the freedom I think this trend gives, its so broad! Here are some images that have inspired me…
