If you have been following my blog long enough, you'll know I mostly post about my daily outfit. Comparing my very first outfit post from 2012 until now, I see myself improve tremendously, and I couldn't be happier to see how much I've grown in this fashion blogging industry. It has been a long, tough, yet fulfilling journey so far.
After 123 Crystal's Closet daily outfit posts, I suddenly had the urge to do some things differently, some things new to challenge creativity and to get out of my comfort zone. That's when this editorial post came about. I wanted to do some editorial photo shoots awhile ago, but I couldn't find the right "partner" to work with until I met Doug Tindall, an amazingly talented photographer with so much enthusiasm and dedication. We exchanged few ideas, discussed about varieties of photos and went immediately for the shoot right after we found the perfect concept as if we were afraid that we could lose the inspiration at any moment. Working with people who have the same level of passion and commitment is always so fun and satisfying.
It's really hard to keep this secret away from everyone as I wanted to show you these beautiful photos I received from Doug one day after our photo shoot, but I couldn't due to my other blogging assignments. Finally, I can proudly present to you my very first editorial photo shoot: BLACK NIGHT.
I don't know if these photos are anywhere near the industry standards, compared to the photos that you often see in fashion magazines, but I'm very happy to call them my own fashion editorial pieces. Doug and I would be very grateful and happy to hear your constructive comments, suggestions so that we could improve ourselves. Just like the Crystal's Closet blog entries, I'm sure my editorial posts will get better and better. It's just the matter of time.
Thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoy these photos as much as we created them.
