Dream Chaser

emember my previous post where I talked about wanting my work to be featured in a magazine? Well, I decided to take the bull by the horn and create a magazine cover in Photoshop to bring that dream to life.
I will no longer be playing the waiting game. I will use the tools I already posses to achieve the results I want. So far, this has seemed to work as it landed me to become a brand ambassador for Stopshop London, an online boutique based in the UK.
This shoot was my first attempt with my mobile studio setup. It was difficult because I have no studio lights so I had to rely on the natural light coming through my apartment which was a character building task to say the least. But as they say, anything that is worth doing is worth doing badly until you learn how to do it.

There’s always a lesson to be learnt when you attempt something. You learn what not to do and what works, and with time you find better ways of doing the things that work. The lesson learnt here in this instance is that I need a steady light source and maybe an external flash to shoot indoors which is another thing I can start to work on.

Striking a pose was one of the few things I could control, so I did in the Onyi way I could and perhaps more.

Wearing the Ivana earrings and English Rose bracelet from Stopshop London  which I dare say look like ornaments from an ornate jewellery box from the Victorian era. These pieces inspired the rest of the outfit.

Fitting into the Stephania tube dress by House of London and Pearly Girly shoes  by Irregular Choice that looked like they were designed to be worn by a lady in French court.

Snap, sing, dream… And there I was, bringing to life one of the many dreams I have. In chasing my dream, I have become my dream and life just got a lot more exciting.
