{almost like floating}


Have been trying desparately to find time to play with photography again, and every time I want to see the world through a lens, I find myself drawn to this Vogue IT shoot by Paolo Roversi.

A simple blank canvas . . . blissful, soft and ethereal lighting, and a quiet serenity that is almost like floating . . .

  • franki — aren’t they amazing? There’s nothing like a really fantastic fashion editorial. And thanks for the vote of confidence on my photography :)

  • I also love those couture poses… the hunched back, the elbows out.

    I’d love to see your images if you jump back into photography yourself :)

  • truly unique style of photography. I like it too.

  • These are etherial and completely whimsical.. I love them they are truly magical.

  • Seesaw Designs + Melissa – hadn’t thought of these images as creepy or eerie until you mentioned it, but can definitely see it now, especially with the dark eye make-up and almost ghost-like shots . . .

    Melissa – things are wonderful, thanks for asking! Can completely understand the busy-ness – summer is always such a hectic {and fun} time. Hope your week is going beautifully so far.

  • fashion addict – love the description of “mysterious atmosphere, and the fact that it’s slightly unfocused really adds to this mood
