Sometimes a photo captures more emotions than words do. So I just put some of the impeccable shots of various photographers that inspire me (some of them are famous and some on the verge).There are a lot of things I want to share and I have not been able to post a lot (my exams ended, bitches!). I was just lazing around for two-three days whilst watching Pretty Little Liars and Sex and the City (highly addictive I must say) but I have something exciting for next week which I will share.
A photo speaks a thousand words and Dublin photographer Lucy Nuzum symbolizes this through her immaculate pictures in form of what she wants to speak. So check out this interview I had with her
What does fashion mean to you?
Fashion can seem very terrifying, and judgmental! But at the same time it can be inspiring and creative
How do you define your style?
Sans style. I have none. Though I’m also desperate for it to suit or flatter me, but too nervous to try anything too exciting! I probably just copy people and try to blend in as much as possible! Black &Grey is the colour of nearly everything! But in fashion photography…. I like subtle, and prefer environmental images, not studio photoshoots. I like an extreme trend or style but softened and simplified by a great stylist to make it as more unique.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
In photography… imagination. Thinking up something and creating it inside a frame. Contrived ideas coming to life. Dreams being interpreted. Thoughts made visual.
When did you get your first camera? Who/What made you get into photography?
I started taking photos when I was 16/17, and was 18 when I bought my first DSLR, and I got into photography through a boyfriend, who quickly lost interest whereas I sort of became obsessed….
Which are your favorite upcoming blogs?
…… um…. I’m trying to think! I don’t know! I liked how a lot of stylists used those big control pants from Pennies with tops/necklaces/shoes and made them look really high-fashion – I actually used a pair myself in this photo – that’s about the extent of fashion present in my self portraits!
What do you want to take up as a career? (Photography/modeling/editing/writing)
Definitely Photography! And it’s strange… as terrified as I am about fashion, and how I feel like I know nothing about it… I’ve been really enjoying fashion-photography. With the help of stylists&models to cover the fashion part, the photography is incredibly creative! As long as I’m not in the studio, it’s definitely an area I want to continue exploring
What advice do you want to give your fellow bloggers?
Write more! I photo-blog on flickr www.flickr.com/photos/shutr and have for the last 3/4 years… and while it’s embarrassing to consider people I meet now looking back and reading all my rants and squeaks, I think it became pivotal in my photography. It’s cathartic, it’s interesting, and I think it builds an audience. I know the photographers I follow on flickr, while I love seeing their latest work I’m also excited to read their latest post and see what they’re up to! So I’d say – screw your dignity; share!
