… how is that for alliteration?
This week I spied colorful foliage in the trees…
… on the ground and on Fiona….
… and on my legs…
What can I say? I’m a sucker for nature.
Happy Weekend, all!
My sister is a professional photographer and every few years my husband and I serve as her guinea pigs for new kinds of photos, poses, outfits, etc. This year, we suggested doing lifestyle photos of us on our bikes (my Electra Amsterdam is dying for a modeling career). Obviously, I see photos on your site and some of the panda shots, but out of the many bicycle links to the right, do you have any recommendations for where to get photo staging ideas, etc.?
Hmmm….Amanda, good question… I’ve always loved some of the creative shots from the lovely ladies of Let’s Go Ride a Bike….you might want to check those out for inspiration. Here are some ideas:
See all of them here:
I also love what Velouria of Lovely Bicycle! has done:
Flickr is a great source for inspiration in general. Some more of my favorites:
Hope that serves as a good starting point for you! I am jealous of your professional shoot with your sister, if you feel like sharing any of the results, I would love to see them! :)
enjoy this beautiful autumn weekend!
the green of your bike is lovely!
Enjoy the weekend for us! We’re supposed to have nothing but rain, so we probably won’t be getting out much :)
Those tights?! I want!
I am really jealous of your ability to take Panda shots. I am not very confident with my hand off the handlebar for very long.
PS – Glad we are blog friends now!
Kara – the pandas take practice for sure! I would recommend only doing it when there are no cars around. After a while, you’ll get more confident in taking one hand off the handlebars and snapping a few shots. Looking forward to seeing them :)
Oohh.. lovely tights!!
Want to wish you a great autumn-weekend, with a lot more moments like these pictures ;o)
I have a darker version of those tights : )
Velouria – I love your version of them and remember seeing those at H&M in Germany last fall (where I got mine). They didn’t have the ones you got in my size so I got the lighter ones, but I love yours! That’s a great shot of you riding too!
♥tights+bikes+girls+flickr OH MYYYY :D
Woohoo, the famous floral tights! Loving them with the boots and skirt, and itching to know what you had on your top half . . . (Is it weird that I follow a bike blog for the fashion?)
haha, no, I’m quite flattered :)
