So this weekend was spent photographing clothes for Hummingbird Vintage and then drinking every drop of wine I had in the house to celebrate afterwards...cue sore heads on Sunday.
One thing I have found is that vintage clothing looks alot better on a body than on a hanger or mannequin so I have decided that from now on all the new vintage treasures I find I will photograph them on people so that there are shown off to their best.
This weekend I persuaded my lovely friend Ben (who just so happens to be a professional photographer) to come up to London and take pictures of my clothes and I also roped in two of my beautiful friends to help model the clothes along side myself. Not to self....do not stand next to tall model like creatures in a photoshoot....I ended up looking like a very curvy, buxom, wench like midget. I wouldn't have been out of place in Lord of the Rings. However...as I keep reminding myself it is about the clothes NOT how I look (although I am now on a diet and looking into growth hormones...!!).
We took the pictures on my roof terrace to give it a bit more of a gritty background and even though it was freezing the girls didn't complain once....although this may have been to do with the wine I was dishing out freely.
And here are a few of the results.....
As always any feedback is greatly appreciated so don't hold back...!!
