I Pretended To Be A Street Style Photographer…Againby Candice Chua
You know what they say about how when you’re at the bottom, the only way to go is up? Well, your mom told you wrong, kids. It is possible to get even worse at a thing that you already suck at and I’m living proof. Last season, I took it upon myself to see what it is like to be a street style photographer at fashion week. We know it’s a tough job, but nothing quite like experiencing it all firsthand. Considering that I had zero expectations, I think I did okay. No one told me otherwise. Photoshop saved my hind, that’s for sure.
Thinking that I probably would kill it again, I decided to give it a go once more this season in Milan and Paris. My, oh, my, me and my big head.
Once again, Yoyo was my subject. I was frankly a little too lazy to shoot anyone else, so that’s strike one for me. We had really busy days, okay? I also forgot to shoot for more than half the shows, so that’s another strike. Finally, I was too frazzled to adjust the lighting for almost all of the shots above (what you see is after some heavy editing) so they were horrendously lit. Strike three. I could go on, but no one really goes on to strike four. Do they?
Perhaps I’m being a little too severe on myself. At least I didn’t get that many photo bombers this season. Plus, I didn’t use my regular camera for these, so I could have been better. Excuses, excuses.
Tell me what you think in the comments below – and be honest! To see all of Yoyo’s street style looks from Milan and Paris taken by real photographers and not phonies like me, click here and here.
