Fashion Edition : Collaborative Fashion Shoot in Fort Worth, Texas

A Fort Worth fashion shoot is in the books. And no, it's not a Stockyards southern boutique inspired fashion shoot just because I said Fort Worth. This Fort Wort fashion shoot is urban and bold

When you put a bunch of creatives in a cool, urban setting with a loud speaker playing music you'll find they get a little weird and a lot imaginative.

Editorial Photoshoot: Fashion Inspired Lake Day

I shot as if it were an Editorial photoshoot by choosing a set location and a specific outfit for the model, working with a chosen mood, and utilizing a variety of poses and visual references such as a boat, sand, and water to embellish the summer-to-fall transition theme. However, it was a low budget shoot with no team to prep for it like Editorial shoots have. Also, unlike a true Editorial photoshoot, we didn't choose a specific clothing or fashion brand but we chose the fashion based on the visuals and created an illusion as if the shoot were representing a brand. I was more interested in the visual aspect and what the clothing, model, and environment was capable of narrating to the viewer. 

Basically, it was a much more relaxed and inexpensive version of an Editorial shoot but I definitely planned for the outcome to look Editorial.

For the shoot, I decided to capture a fusion of fall colors and summer wear as autumn starts to creep in, but let's be real, it's Texas and still pretty blazing hot. The romper we chose is perfect as it has sleeves with a fall color palette and pattern, but it is also thin and airy for a warm lake day. Basically, it is the perfect fashion piece to transition from summer to fall.

Carlotta : An Italian Goddess

Carlotta. Before I introduce you to her, I did a little Google search on the meaning of her name.

Free & Strong.

This is pretty accurate.

Carlotta is a goddess as you'll see from her photos. She reminds me of Venus with her hair and classic, strong features.

She's got an aura like fire. The kind of fire you want to be near because it warms you up and suddenly the current moment turns timeless and beautiful.

Portrait Editing : VSCO & Sleeklens

So I took it upon myself to test out these Sleeklens tools by comparing my original VSCO edits with Sleeklens edits.

With my VSCO edits, I select a preset, adjust as needed, and retouch in Photoshop.

With my Sleeklens edits, I rarely had to open Photoshop for more retouching because the brushes could do everything in Lightroom.
