Welcome to today’s street style photography post!
We were faced with one great day of weather in the city over the weekend, and another that, well, stunk. Luckily I was able to snap some shots and I can’t wait to show them to you throughout the week.
We’ll start today’s post with a series of shots to give you an idea of how some of these street style shots happen. These normally take place really quick; for example, this first grouping took less than one minute.
I introduced myself (which includes handing over a card – that adds legitimacy to the situation, and a must in my eyes), had a little chat (I’ll tell you about her clothing venture in a bit) and snapped a couple photos.
Right after taking this shot I suddenly saw the blonde (not in focus) in the background of this shot.
I fired off this last shot and then stopped to chat. As it turns out, Zuza (left) is a model and has starting a clothing line, Mulholland Drive. The other girl designs decorative pillows, but I couldn’t catch with who. There was a bit of a language barrier (read: my southern inability to understand her English).
Anyway, that’s a quick look at how some of these shots take place.
Answer: A grade school teacher. 7th grade I believe.
She’s a personal shopper for J.Crew.
Let’s take a closer look at his shoes.
I rounded a street corner and suddenly spotted her dress, and then the Chucks, and then the hat… and new a photo needed to be taken. Her name is Liz and she’s a writer, and also runs a blog called Homebodies.
