My first "street style" photo

{Dress - from a Singaporean boutique, Shoes - Lefties, Bag - Mango, Watch - Dior}

Here it goes, my first street style photo!!! :D OK, she is one of my best friends so it is cheating a bit, but I think it can be a great confidence booster to start taking pics of your friends a la Scott while you learn the ins and outs of street style photography. Did you know that the best is to keep the camera right about the height of the hip of the model? :) Now I just have to suck it up and start asking random stylish people to pose for me.  Scott, please send some energizing and encouraging thoughts! :) Tell me people, (other than the king and queen of street photography Scott and Garance), do you follow any street style blogs?

Nice work!

I also love the sartorialist... started reading his blog a few years ago and have been addicted ever since. I recently discovered there is also a book now of his amazing street photography, haven't bought it but it looked like a great coffee table read - very inspiring.

Happy photographing!
