So many moons ago I had a small pop up shoppe at a few local historial shows.
My booth was "Madame Fifi's Froufrous" and we sold bloomers, parasols, fans, etc.
I have had these bloomers kicking around for awhile begging to be put up on Etsy.
And so today, I did!
Mini photoshoot in my kitchen; here's some Behind-The-Scenes sillyness for your Friday.
(The whole time I was thinking...gee I hope no neighbours can see in through my windows watching me trying to do silly things whilst photo-taking, in my kitchen this morning. )
Then I realized this would be a funny blog post, so I'm sharing it.
But I still hope my neighbours weren't peeking!
I started off by just trying to hang them on hangers and get decent shots.
As you can see, it wasn't really getting the results I wanted.
So, THEN I thought; I'll put them on to really show their shape, and use the mirror in the hallway to get a photo.
|Yes. Sigh> That's my belly.|
And so THAT didn't work. So then..... I got to thinking. The mirror idea was valid; but I'd need good lighting, a simple backdrop......and inspiration hit.
I dragged the huge hall mirror out into the brightly morning-lit kitchen.
I hung a sheet off our shelf; propped the hall mirror against the kitchen table; under the skylight and VOILA! Instant photo studio. Laugh.
The first few shots still weren't what i was looking for. They were missing something....then I had my AHA moment. I ran down to the basement and dragged out one of my pirate skirts. Then I raced upstairs to drag out my granny boots and white tights. And THEN...it looked exactly how I wanted it to look.
|Super flattering full shot (ACK) .Here's my rig as it appearing in the mirror!|
|OOOps! Can't balance and take photos.|
|Non-Flattering BEHIND the scenes. Laugh.|
|Gettin' my good side...heheheh.....stretch....|
|Vamp wasn't sure what was going on but I was blocking her view of outside.|
|But, the mirror made an okay cheek scratcher so.....|
|Muffin watching me thinking "what is she up to now..."|
|Please don't fall on me ...she seemed to say|
|Realized I didn't have to balance if I rested my foot on a chair. Duh. Muffin was *right* under me the entire time.|
It's Labour Day weekend, so I'll be off for a while. What're you up to this weekend?? Leave a comment, I'd love to know.
