I Pretended To Be A Street Style Photographer…Again

One photo bomber, but at least the lighting's not half bad.

Pinterest Button

No. Just no.

It'll pass if you don't look at it too closely. If you do, you'd realise that Yoyo's sweater is overexposed.

Pinterest Button

Ehhhh. I'm going to pass myself for this one.

Yoyo looks good, but she's walking out of the picture, so I guess it's a no?

Pinterest Button

Ah, that's better.

Pinterest Button

The colouring is off. My apologies to all the unwilling photo bombers!

Pinterest Button

Yeap. Speaks for itself.

Pinterest Button

Red and white tape is extremely not in season.

Pinterest Button

Okay, this is not bad. Right? Right?

Pinterest Button

This would have been a good shot if Yoyo's shoes were in focus. But, alas.

Not bad at all. Even got that raindrop situation going on.

Not too many distractions, lighting and colouring looking good. I think we have a winner! Well, of the lot, at least.

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.
