Outfit / Snap Decisions

Larkspur Vintage | Outfit: Snap DecisionsLarkspur Vintage | Outfit: Snap DecisionsGetting these photos proved to be an incredibly trying experience. As you know (or maybe you don’t), I shoot most of my own outfit photos, which is time I truly enjoy; it allows me to have some alone time, get creative, practise my photography skills and explore new parts of my city (sometimes). I have a lot of go-to spots that I shoot at, which you may have noticed by now. These spots generally have little people around because even though I have been doing this for a long while, it is still awkward to have people watch you photograph yourself. On this particular day I had planned to go to one of my usual spots, but silly me, forgetting it was the Caribbean Carnival Parade (aka Caribana), the exact location I was shooting at was filled with Caribana goers; there was just no way I would find a secluded, quiet spot in that area. I had to make a snap decision (pun not intended) about where I wanted to shoot, because I refused to head home without photos in hand (or in camera). The traffic in the city this day was so congested, it was absolute chaos. What normally takes me about 1.5hrs to shoot (that includes travel time), ended up being closer to 4hrs because public transit was moving at a snails pace.  Once I finally reached High Park, it was a lovely time of day, but the mosquitos were well out and feasting on me pretty insanely, and I now have a strange lump on my underarm that I assume came from this day, but it’s hard to say. Not my favourite day of shooting, but you can’t win ’em all. Thank goodness I had one of my breeziest dresses on and a big hat because it was a pretty hot day, and I found myself outside for far longer than expected, so you can imagine the sweat droplets covering every inch of my body (lovely visual for you), which would have been far worse had a chosen to wear a less breathable article of clothing.
