Necklace that I made to match Anthropologie's Songbird Circle Skirt. Sometimes I feel like I get a little carried away with my "matching". But it's fun and almost like my own little personal challenge! I loosely based this design off of the Mixed Alloy necklace. I made my own decoupaged beads with music paper, and then strung them up with some other large round pearls, metals, and sky blue ceramic beads.
Taking the outfit pictures was probably more of a challenge than the necklace! It was one of those days where it rained on and off. After work, I ducked into a new location I found and while I loved the industrial look to it..... gah! those legs and skirt are blinding and could not be fixed with photo editing.
So then I ducked into another place I often go (under a bridge) and while I enjoyed the wind effects, the coloring was still off.
So, I went back to one of my tried and true spots: the stairwell to the garage I park in. Going against the window certainly brought out the details in the skirt, but then everything else was too dark.
I do really like this one though, just not for getting the best details of the clothes.
Ahhh, finally just enough natural light to balance it all out.
The one I submitted to Effortless Anthropologie
And then the sun came out! Oh, how I would have liked to have played around more. But, I had to get home to my family. Even though this was a frustrating situation at first, I ended up enjoying the experience as I continue to learn about lighting and editing with such simple equipment!
