ok, so let me start off by saying some of you might read this post and think i have lost my mind a little bit. but hear me out, ok?
i have always been fascinated with underwater shoots. whether that be watching planet blue like it’s my job, or admiring fashion shoots executed underwater. i’ve always had a thing for jellyfish too (remember this post!?) so i thought it would be cool to shoot this week’s style post underwater. and no, this isn’t the most “shoppable” outfit but it’s interesting to study the layers and movement of fabrics in a new environment. well, at least i thought so.
check out how sweet this gold lamé skirt looks when submerged in water. close up (above) and far away (below)…
or this yellow gauzy skirt that created an insane effect once it touched the water…
we had fun shooting for a while in an isolated pool of a downtown rooftop with an underwater film camera. which is always exciting because you never know what you are going to get. i was really pleased at the abstract result and could even picture these blown up large on the wall.
and now for the contest i never won as a child…
then i decided to give myself an hour (yes, i’m a loser and time myself sometimes) to try to edit the footage in photoshop into a short little movie. you know how we teach you to edit your videos all in photoshop now? (class here and here) those skills are really helpful when you just want to make a short video to accompany your post! watch here:
and last but not least, the winner of the massive giveaway! taylor went out of her way and made this adorable video in addition to entering our contest. our whole team just loved it. congrats taylor m., we can’t wait to send you all of your gifts and see you at blogshop!
update: i deeply apologize for my mistake here, i’m human and i made an error. i hear all of your comments and i’m doing everything i can to fix this. i announced one more free spot to blogshop on my facebook page. thank you so much for understanding. -bri
