Chasing The Night

As the fashion bloggers among you would agree, photo shoots don't always go as planned or as smoothly as you'd like them to. Schedules go awry, the location is suddenly engaged, or the weather just won't cooperate.

My boyfriend - who, as many of you know, is also my photographer - and I have pretty much stuck to outdoor day shoots for nearly all of my posts. The few ones that were shot indoors or in the evening were for a certain event or another. 




 Our first attempt at an outdoor evening photo shoot came quite by accident - on one of those days when our schedules got mixed up and night time caught up with us. Since we couldn't afford to move the shoot for another day, we decided to find a location with enough available light and experiment. And for all the stress the mix up created, I must say the pictures turned out a lot better than expected despite the lack of additional lighting!





I think the chilly night setting actually kind of complemented this casual grunge outfit that consists of this white denim vest that I love worn over a black lace bandeau, denim shorts, black stockings, and the new pair of boots I got from Nicco.



A cup of camomile tea always did wonders for frazzled nerves.



And then I can afford to laugh and smile.


Outfit details: 
Lace bandeau top, ZARA
Vest, DOLLHOUSE
Shorts and necklace, FOREVER 21
Beanie, COTTON ON
Boots, TOPSHOP
Leather bag, KENNETH COLE

  1. I totally agree with you. I prefer to shoot in a broad daylight. I haven't experienced to shoot at night because of the moist and blurred result in the photos plus it is hard to put the focus, too. But these photos turned out great I can see. Kudos to your BF. My hubby is also my photographer hehe. :0 Nice look by the way, love your boots. :)

  7. I like day light. I don't like using flash much because natural lighting is the best!
