It's time for some stylin'!

I worked in magazines for nearly five years. And during that time, I never picked up a camera or did anything creative. Shoots were going on left right and centre. We had a huge studio in our office, with four separate shooting rooms. Fashion and beauty writers were forever shooting products, people, props. Once in a while, I will pop in the studio to see my magazine's shoots, but that's all I did...see. I never got my hands dirty, so to speak. Now I wish I had. Learnt about camera angles, lighting, framing, styling. Ironic, right?

But magazine life was also hectic, manic and crazy.

Now that I have left, I finally have room in my head for a little creative expression.

So now I am teaching myself how to use the camera.

I'd like to think that I absorbed some styling skills, even if just by osmosis, from being around so many creative people for so long.

This weekend, I attempted a little shoot at home.
