Some time in the first week of October, Obinna, Faith and I some how ended up talking about photography and art. I am sure you all remember some of Obi's work (if you don't go back to my FIRST five posts or check out his facebook page HERE). After talking and bouncing ideas off each other we decided to do a creative shoot of our own. Faith helped out creatively, Obi took the pictures/directed and I styled the shoot.
It was more for fun (and practice) than for anything but the pictures turned out amazing and we had fun in the process! we were going for something sophisticated yet minimalistic by sticking with solid colors, simple silhouettes and minimal makeup. I decided to use chiffon because it makes nice flowy gowns and tulle because its just fun to use. The black bustier was made out of tulle wrapped around me and then accessorized with a faux fur sash. These are only a few of my favorite ones and I might update this post once I get my hands on a couple of my favorites :). The rest of them should be up on Obi's facebook page and/or his Flickr some time soon. BIG BIG thumbs up to Obi. I adore the picture :) <3
As my horrible week draws to an end, I sit here on my bed with some comfort food (chinese and brownies) and an episode of Homeland. I just came out of an exam and you know that feeling you get when you know it didnt go too well....yea.....i've got that feeling :(
Before i try to sleep my sadness away, I just want to say there will be a post or two up soon. With Thanksgiving, school and a couple of other stuff, this month has been more than busy for me so I apologize for my absence.
