Fashion Photography-Better to be Indoors in this heat

Wearing:

  • Blue floral asymmetrical dress from Target
  • Bow belt
  • black tights (similar)
  • purple floral flats (similar)

Recently Jen of Little Bird Fashion wrote an interesting article about whether fashion blog readers prefer indoors or outdoors photography. A lot of her readers liked the indoor pics as they said it was like getting to know her better (like snooping through someone’s drawers – come on we all do it!)

This led me to take some indoors pics today mainly because it is frickin hot outside today but the other reason was for a social experiment.

I have to admit I read blogs who do both indoors and outdoors but some blogs I prefer one over the other. I especially love when people use nature to take beautiful outfit posts but this usually involves having a photographer boyfriend and a “Twilight Style” paddock with little lavender flowers near by. Unfortunately most bloggers don’t have this and we have to make do with the sticky heat, snow (in some places) and a crappy tripod that falls over in the wind!

So I am asking you readers- what do you prefer? I would love to hear some answers!

  1. I prefer outdoor outfit pictures for the natural light. Even if I can't get outdoors because of the heat etc, I try to find a spot indoors with plenty of natural light! Oh and I don't even own a tripod - I make do with balancing my camera on random surfaces!!

  3. I love these shots of you!! Your kitty is adorable and your home looks so peaceful, and cute and full of gorgeous sunlight. Your dress and belt are darling Ilana!!

    As for photos, I don't really prefer one over the other...it's all about the lighting. Though for myself I feel more comfortable shooting outdoors. I live on a mountain surrounded by woods and lakes, so it's not hard to find a decent place to shoot.

    Happy weekend love! xx Marisa
