style: on photography
Posted By admin On January 24, 2011 @ 5:19 am In style | 16 Comments
I get asked all the time about the photography on Sugarlaws, and I’ve been sort of hesitant to post about it for a single reason:
It’s so dorky.
Because, see, I’m not one of those lucky-duck bloggers who has a professional photographer for a boyfriend/fiance/husband. When Chad has a Saturday where he doesn’t have to work, he’s not particularly interested in braving the elements to take 600 photos of me in different outfits (he’d rather play Starcraft — go figure). You guys all know that my friend Kristen pitches in when she can, but the fact is that busy people in New York have schedules that don’t always bend to the demands of fashion blogging.
So, here’s the secret. I wind up doing most of the photos myself, with my beloved Canon SLR  on a sturdy tripod . And there are a few core strategies that I use for every single one of my photos:
For the photo above, I used all these tips, and then used the CinemaScope setting on Picnik.com  (love this site). I think it turned out really well!
So… those are my secrets! Next time you’re taking a family portrait or your own food and style photos, take a look at these tips and see if they help!
On me: Club Monaco shirt, gifted Club Monaco shorts, Jessica Simpson platform heels, H&M leg warmers, gifted Tory Burch bracelet, Calyco necklace (available in the Sugarlaws Boutique ).
