TCS fashion shoot

After twelve glorious days in Cambridge it was time to head back to Stockholm, but not before doing one last photoshoot in the morning. So at 8:00 on Tuesday morning I met up with Alice Mottram, Jessie Mathewson, Kat Karpenko, Helena Blair, Amelia Oakley and Flora Chatt at Murray Edwards College for a fashion photoshoot. The clothes in this shoot were from The Whitepepper.

Kat Karpenko. I am not going to attempt to comment on the fashion, instead I want to point that I liked the blue colour and how it contrasted nicely with the orange leaves.

Helena Blair. Amelia pointed out the little shrubbery in front of Helena, which made for a great framing.

Kat Karpenko. Alice and Jessie gathered leaves to throw at her, I think the technical term is “decorate her with leaves”.

Kat Karpenko. When photographing people in bright clothes a dark background is nice, and when photographing people in dark clothes a brighter background makes them stand out more. Here I brightened the green component in the black and white photo to make Kat stand out against the background better.

Kat Karpenko. If you want to take a beautiful portrait of a friend, then soft light from a cloudy day is perfect. If you have a doorway, or a tunnel, or some other way to shield part of the light, then you can start playing with shadows to improve the look further. See for example the photos shot under a bridge in this blog post.

Personally I fell in love with the denim jacket, because dinosaurs! I absolutely loved how Jessie paired it with a see-through top to add romantic mood to the outfit, whilst vintage-inspired 7/8 trousers added a bit of edge to the look.

Amelia Oakley looked so fashionable in her own outfit, so I included a photo of it as well here.

Although navy playsuit was too big, I loved the silky material of it and a sense of freedom it provided. The wideness of trousers made the playsuit seem like a dress, but did not make me worried about revealing too much when moving around. Its print combines two of my favourite colours- warm yellow and deep navy. Needless to say, I loved the smiley faces.

It was great fun, many thanks to Alice, Jessie, Kat, Helena, Flora and Amelia!
