photo session: alter ego

just because i own a camera, doesn't necessarily mean i'm a photographer. i dream of owning a DSLR but i'm afraid i'd only waste it by not having enough talent and will to learn photography. when my friends insisted we'd have an impromptu shoot on our sleepover last weekend though, i couldn't resist. here's my second attempt at photography. the first one being this one here.

our shoot is aptly named, 'alter ego' because i styled my friends in clothes they don't wear, in a style that's not themselves. meet the cast:

april, the sweet and bubbly girl whose style staples are graphic tees, jeans and ballet flats or converse chucks. 
 

ivy, the outgoing but conservative nurse whose usual outfits are classic shorts, embellished tees and dresses


arlene, the funny and spirited government worker whose style is mainly composed of the basic leggings or jeans and feminine tops. 



mabelle, the loud and spunky sales rep whose usual style includes denim shorts or jeans and body-hugging dresses.

I think you have mad photography skills, yo! That was my alter ego speak. But I meant it. I think. Because it's meant to be positive. Good job! There, that's me. Dude.

That photoshoot looks like so much fun, I can only dream of a time when my friends wouldn't run away screaming whenever a camera is pointing in their direction..

I also want an SLR camera just because the focus is awesome, but I bet that if I had one I'd never use it and if I were to it'll be about once a month to take a pic of my chickens or a new default for my facebook.

These outfits are all lovely. I definately adore the black and white, I can only dream of wearing something as awesome as that!!
