I normally try to keep a backlog of street style fashion photos on hand in case I’m not able to shoot, but due to travel and other things I was completely out of shots after Wednesdays post. So, I hit the streets of SoHo last night and saw some things I thought you might enjoy.
Enjoy the fashion. And the glimpse of New York City.
I loved this. Why? Because it’s different. Not only is she wearing a ball cap, she’s rocking it backwards.
Now for a little behind the scenes. As I was waiting on the subway I saw this girl standing in front of me. Some people can pull off the old school looking high-waist denim shorts well, and she happens to be one of them. But once I saw the shot I thought to myself, “you need a shot from the front,” and that’s when I started debating whether or not I’d approach her. When this isn’t done spontaneously questions start to come to mind like, “Will she think I’m a creep?” “Will she say no to the shot.” and so on.
Just as the subway came in the station I decided to not let the moment pass and she was kind enough to allow me to take the shot. The red purse and black shoes really seemed to bring this home for me.
I normally don’t edit photos in Photoshop at all, but I thought I’d tool around with this second shot just a bit. Edits can create nice effects, but it just doesn’t give you the “real” look that I like to share. Anyway, great outfit.
