Sarah (Lifestyle)

I have been recently been inspired by some lifestyle photos I've seen of late. I decided to work on a few of my own. This was one from the beach shoot with Sarahlouise on the same day that we did this shot and this shot.

Right this is going to be my last post in a while, could be days, weeks or even months. God knows. Basically I need to finish off my PhD thesis and I don't think the distraction of my photoblog is appropriate at this time. The shutterchance development of the site also needs a bit more attention and time now than before too.

I'll keep posting when I get the time but it's not going to be often. Thank you for visiting my photoblog, I have to say that my recent improvements would not have happened if not for your constant support.

Thank you again.

Jide Alakija :D

Love the shot, love the edit, love the pose

WOOW, This is an incredible shot. Amazing, wonderful. Great job. I hate to hear that you will be "distracted" by your PhD thesis in the coming period. We will sure miss you in the coming period here at Shutterchance. Then again, go for it, god luck (and hard work) with the thesis.
BTW: If I click on the "this shot" links in your comment, I get a 404

I'm not entirely sure what it is about this that I like, but like it I do.

Perhaps it's that her pose emulates a windswept fabric in a windswept place. It could look so unnatural in a studio but it's perfect here. Hats of to Sarahlouise for her part in this, too. And the vignetting helps to frame it too.

See you when we see you, as a doctor of philosophy I hope. Good luck with it.
