Shooting With Soul: Exercise 6 – Wardrobe and Style

Exercise 6: Wardrobe & Style

I love shoes. And I love getting photographs of people’s shoes at weddings, too. I believe you can tell a lot about a person by the kinds of shoes they’re wearing. I seem to have a pair of shoes for every occasion and below are a good selection.

You’ve got the Converse for every day wear. The sandals for summer. The Pumps for going out. The flats for a smart casual look. The Nike runners to keep fit. The Hiking/Travel shoes for travelling and then the Military boots for when it’s a bit wet and cold out. I never feel an outfit is complete without a good pair of shoes and living in Sweden where you take your shoes off indoors is something I had to get used to. “You mean you’re having a party at your house… but I can’t wear my shoes?” Took me a LOOOONG time to learn to bring a second pair. LOL

In the summer of 2014 my Husband and I decided to take a road trip down to the south of France from Sweden to soak up some sun, and as I was deciding which books to take, I picked up my copy of Alessandra Cave‘s gem, Shooting With Soul. I ended up completing a good number of the exercises in the book but instead of doing them in order, like the book suggests, I chose to complete them whenever I felt the opportunity presented itself during that time. I also used whatever I had available in terms of gear, which was not a lot and many times presented a really limiting challenge. I did not, and could not, complete all of the projects in the book on the trip, so I shall continue them now that we’re back home in Sweden. This image was completed at home.
