I called this post ‘street style’ but to be honest it’s more just a series of candid photos from around Somerset House, I am far to shy & awkward to walk over to strangers and ask them to stop to pose for a photo of their outfit! Instead I just lurked around, sneaking quick candid shots of people walking by me & the general atmosphere. Maybe next time I’ll be a little more ballsy & stop people, but to be honest I kind of like the more natural feel.
I didn’t actually plan to make this a full post, I took these mostly for myself & to get in some proper practice to help me further get to grips with using the DSLR on manual, but I liked the way they came out, so I didn’t want them to just sit in a folder on my desktop & be forgotten about. I know I’m saying that a lot recently, but for someone who couldn’t even get a decently focused photo out of it in the beginning I’m proud of how much better I’ve got in a short space of time, and of how I’m actually starting to really like some of the shots I’ve taken. Though admittedly I did miss a lot of great outfits because of my shaky hands or not having the settings adjusted right! It’s a learning curve I know, and whilst I’m sure I’ll never be upto Ollie’s standard, hopefully I’ll soon be good enough that I don’t feel like I have to apologise to you guys for the drop in quality when ever I’ve had to do the photos! I’m only half joking there.
I spoke with quite a few people about how there were way less of the crazy outfits that we’ve come to expect this season, everyone seemed much more casual & practical, which honestly I preferred. I’m really not the greatest fan of that idea of throwing together the craziest outfit you have in an attempt to get photographed! Some of these I’ve included because I liked their outfits, others purely because I liked the photo.
