As yo must have noticed, we, at Fashionably Yours, are not expert photographers.
Our cameras are pretty ordinary, run of the mill, point and shoots and super zooms and our know-how regarding photography, is pretty limited too!
We keep experimenting with lights and settings to get better quality photographs.
So we thought of catching the golden hour the other day.
We took two sets of photographs of the same outfit in two different lights and at two different times- one at around 2 in the afternoon and the other at dusk, at the golden hour.
Can you see the difference here?
The golden hour almost changed the actual color of the dress!
The conclusion- the photographs taken at the golden hour does not reflect the true colors of an outfit.Hence, I'm going to use this light for taking photographs of outfits where color does not play a pivotal role, like outfits in neutrals or black and white.
Also, I've learned a lot about photography from my blogger friends and one name worth mentioning here is the lovely Lisa from Expanding. Do visit her blog for some excellent tips on parenting and photography.
By the way, are you all excited for Prabal Gurung for Target? I am! Can't wait for the collection to hit the stores this Sunday.
What I Am Wearing:
dress- Express ( buy it here, on sale) cardigan- J Crew (buy it here) bag- Steve Madden
boots- Kenneth Cole leg warmers and sunnies- Steve Madden watch- DKNY (buy it here)
Thanking you Yours fashionably
