it was as if overnight etain and i saw the same vision – to solder our different creative components and translate them into reality. i love photography, and she loves fashion and styling. so after a 3 hour long facetime later (during which we should be working on our law degrees), we decided to book tickets back to london to settle our sudden explosion of creativity.
our series of photoshoots lined up for the day started off in bethnal green, at the conservatory archives (@conservatory_archives). it’s a small, tight space filled with wonderful shrubbery and just greenery. i would say that its more a display rather than a shop (yes you can buy their plants!)
the area was tight and we were limited to shooting around this space featuring an antique armchair. etain picked out a pair of striking red trousers featuring a checked pattern that she bought from forever 21 a while ago, which contrasted perfectly against the greenery.
we mainly utilised the natural light coming from one side of the window. however, upon accidentally switching on the flash on my camera, we realised that the results were even better as it produced a higher contrast and softened the highlights which were stripping away some of the details. all in all, this location was perfect for hitting off what we had envisioned.
