When you work on commission, you tend to get two types of time served to yourself: time of laid-back, workless and broke life and time of intense workflow with money coming to let you live through tht first type of time. I've been having that second type of time served to me lately, hence lack of posts on the blog. I've been sewing up a storm, designing graphics and taking photos for clients. With my days filled to the brim with duties, I finally did find a little time to take a few photos --albeit on the job! We were taking wedding photos for a cute couple and we had two spare hours in between the shoots. While the couple and their families were dining, we went to have coffee and to look for nice places for the next photoshoot in the Old Town. We came to the music school grounds and I asked my boyfriend, The Fish, to take a few pictures of me in my working outfit.
I figure there is no place for bold prints and being heavy with colour when you're a wedding photogtrapher. You are supposed to stay in the background as much as possible while still being elegant enough to show your respect. After all, it's a huge celebration for the bride and groom and their families and friends so it's only fair to look like you fit in while staying professional. I like to choose white tops and rather close fitting downs that let me easily move about (you do that a lot when you shoot a wedding) and some comfortable shoes. At the same time, I don't want to look like I'm going to the office so while a pencil skirt is a yes, a black pencil skirt would not satisfy me. So here's an iteration of my usual working outfit. A white blouse with a subtly pink bow, a classic pencil skirt in polka dots (made it myself some time ago) and nude flats. Simple, smart and comfortable.
And you'll see the photos of the bride and groom later this week because the beautiful bride was wearing a dress that I made for her and I want to show it to you!
Po polsku niebawem.
