The Throwback

The Throwback: Basic Instinct

This shoot dates all the way back to May 2012 when I tried out the white minimalist look. The suit jacket and skirt combo were a fantastic set from H&M Trend, back when their Trend collection was still amazing and pretty far-out there when it comes to high street fashion. Unfortunately they just haven’t been as experimental in their collections for the last couple of seasons as they used to, so it’s nice to look back on old outfits when I used to buy almost the entire Trend range.

This shoot was also interesting, because before this point I’d never really tried to shoot in bad weather before and it taught me so much about lighting and how even dark clouds can really mess with the image quality of a high spec camera. Thankfully my camera equipment is much  more advanced these days and I’m able to overcome the bad lighting much better, but the grainy-ness is still something I struggle with.

Anyway, enough of the ramblings, and enjoy the image below and have a good Thursday. It’s nearly the weekend. Yay!

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.
