It has been quite some time since I set my mind on doing a check-on-tartan fashion story. It’s a creative assignment to challenge myself. The challenge is styling multiple looks for this tartan mini kilt – the more the merrier. However, it seemed difficult to get the timing right for a photoshoot. When I finally had all the accessories I desired for this ensemble, well, it was raining none stop. By the time the weather cleared up, I found I needed to get myself in shape to fit into this mini skirt… There seemed to always be something stopping the project from happening. Until this September when everything fell into place, so it happened at last! Even the Weather Gods were smiling nicely at us on the day of the photoshoot.
Since my total look was about clashing checks with tartan. I thought it’d be fun to pick a visually busy location to echo the theme of clashing and playfulness. Sydney’s Luna Park was my top choice. As it turned out – outside on the boardwalk between Luna Park and Lavender Bay, put us in a perfect position to capture the funky geometric patterns of the mural on the wall and vivid-coloured rails and tubes of the rides of Luna Park. Yes, we found our ideal backdrop, even better than I had imagined. And perhaps Kent’s eye for strong visual composition helped quite a bit here too.
No one else was pointing their cameras where we were. The waves of screams from thrill-seekers on the rides were contagious, injecting us with their energy rush of adrenalin and excitement! Did it all translate into the photographs? I shall let your eyes give them the test.
Sydney’s weather is warming up day by day and the sunlight hours are getting longer. Why not take advantage and book a location shoot? Simply contact Kent here.
