I really had fun with this shoot. I’m currently working on my MBA and I am concentrating in marketing so this shoot really pushed me to think about what my photos needed to portray in order for the products to sell. I also looked through magazines and tons of photos for similar products. I made sure not to wear any other accessories other than the hat and the necklace because additional accessories can often distract the audience from the product.
I was really hoping to get a lot of nice outdoor shots, but it has been raining all week! Nonetheless I still think it was a great shoot. I feel that I am really beginning to grow in my print capabilities. The majority of my work has been live performances such as fashion shows, pageants, and plays so this is a great experience!
Trendy Purple Hat by Angela & William New York
This hat is comfortable and you can do quite a few different looks with it! For my first shot, I decided to show how the hat can really make a statement on its own. As a natural girl, I often have to leave my hair under wraps for a style to set. This hat is perfect for that! It’s cute, stylish, and has a tie in the back so that it can be as loose or as tight as I need it to be.
I did a couple shots with a casual sweater. This hat can definitely accompany a casual outfit! It goes very nicely with sweaters and knitted clothing to give you that comfy, snug look. It can also be dressy. The hat was a terrific complement to my dress! For my hair in these shots, I first I applied the Going Natural Curl Keeper. I then braided my hair in medium sized plats. I have a couple of wild ends so I applied a bit more of the Going Natural Curl Keeper to the ends and wrapped them around bobby pins. It really gave them a nice curl! I let my hair dry overnight and then took the braids down to get the curls seen in the pictures.
Elegant & Bold Picturesque necklace
I LOVE this necklace. It is so unique and carefully crafted! I love the natural tones accompanied by the fuchsia. It’s gorgeous! You can really do a lot with this necklace. You can wear it with a semi-formal shirt, but it can also set off a sexy dress. I chose two different color schemes, neutral colors and bright colors, to demonstrate how versatile this necklace is. I chose neutral colors for the first two shoots because they blended really well with the earthy tones of the necklace. I then chose a couple red outfits because I really felt they drew out the fuchsia in the necklace and made a bold statement.
I did two different hairstyles for this shoot. I first used a scarf to pull back my curls into a ponytail. I then pinned the curls up to make the style more dressy. For the second style, I shook out my curls a bit, pinned them to the side, and added a pretty red flower.
I feel really confident in my photos and I am so happy that they turned out nicely.
