Look of the Day: Hard Light

Hard afternoon sun and crazy wind are a blogger’s nightmare, especially when combined. I personally prefer soft morning light on my outfit pictures, sunsets will do as well, but what can you do if it’s your only opportunity to shoot an outfit?

1) make sure the wind is blowing in your back, this way the hair will look more voluminous
2) if squinting on a picture is not an option, stand facing the sun and turn your head to a side, so that one part of your face was lit up without any harsh shadows
3) if you can’t/don’t want to find a shadow, try turning your back to the sun and then just add some contrast to your pictures in Photoshop.

I’m wearing:

Crackled top – Cameo (a gorgeous dress in the same print here)
Sleeveless blazer – Zara (similar one here)
Jeans – Asos
Necklace – Zara (similar one here)
Watch – Michael Kors
Heels – Zara (similar ones here
Bag – Asos
