I had the opportunity to go out with a friend of mine and do a portrait shoot for a fashion assignment I had to do. This quick assignment turned into an hour long photoshoot and I took over 400 photos! I wasn’t planning on taking that many but it just happened, and they turned out really great. The goal for the assignment was to showcase her hat (Goorin Bros.) and glasses (See Eyewear) which are from shops in Charleston, SC.
We went to the statehouse because I wanted to use the stone as a backdrop to contrast the colors and flowers on her shirt. The flowers around the grounds were in full bloom so that was a nice change of scenery for the photos.
As for the editing, I tried to keep it light and pleasant. I learned how to do split toning to add a different and unique touch to them. I think it turned out really well for this shoot and will be adding that effect to other portrait shoots in the future.
Check out what we did!
