The Throwback

The Throwback: Sound of the Underground, Westminster Station

Hello world,

Most of the shoots on this blog take meticulous planning, at least an hour or two of shooting and plenty of post-production work. You end up taking something close to 300 pictures but only use eight. Shoots are exhausting and arduous, but once in a blue moon everything seems to go right for you and the entire process becomes a breeze.

This shoot was one of them. I picked the clothes up that day and told my boyfriend what I wanted and he agreed to do the shoot for me that evening. We left, got to Westminster station and every photo he took was just beautiful.

He captured the beauty in the harsh breeze blocks, the metal piping and many ballast beams around. It was lucky too that everything fell into place so easily as I was suffering from a pretty nasty skin condition around this time and I was having another flare-up during the shoot. By the time the next morning rolled around my hands and feet were covered with lesions and I had to take a couple of weeks off work to recover.

It just goes to show, some of the best shoots are often also the easiest.

Fresh out of college with an MA in Journalism, a passion for clothes, fashion and styling shoots, I was also the fashion editor of a magazine my colleagues and I set up called SCOPE magazine, which was disbanded three years ago. For now I'm just a freelance journalist and blogger.
Other than obsessing about fashion, I love theology and history, writing apocalyptic fiction (it's weird, I know!) and the occasional weeekend of horse-riding if I have the time and I don't injure myself in the process.
