Location, location

Today I was suffering from indecision as to where the best light would be for my outfit photos at 7 pm. Normally I like to go out a bit earlier when the light is hitting the end of the driveway and I can be nice and back lit.

Instead, I puttered about the yard and tried to find somewhere else ended up getting tons of bug bites... It's going to be a bad summer for bugs and ticks, we've already found three on the dog. (She's got the repellant on her, but they still jump on.)

Location
festivale clutch

Location

The first place, light filtered by trees, but shadowy.
Location, location

The second place, still shadows, but no nice rim light.
Location 2

The third place, even light, but in the grass which was full of holes and bugs.
Location 3
The Rundown
Top Gap - Pink A-line Skirt Made by Me - Turquoise Sandals Frye Gerry - Necklace Made by Me "Sweet Drops" - Woven Belt Thrifted - Earrings Handmade Artist's Alley - Sunnies Old Navy - Tie Dye Clutch Big Buddha Festival

Which place do you think has the best light?

  6. I like the lighting in the first and third pics. But since you are being bit my bugs in the grass, that probably isn't the best place. I love your clutch!

  7. I love the tree location and the way you always add a touch of turquoise to your outfits, I'm learning. =D

  8. bug bites during outfit pics = story of my summer. I'm dying over here. Love the look though. Glad you got it in the end.

  9. I love the gorgeous colors here. The turquoise really stands out.

    Ugh, I hate the ticks, too. We've discovered them in the field at school. I've told my students not to go near them when they see those bugs because they "suck your blood" and that was a good enough repellant for them. Until when, I don't know. Ick.

  13. Oh my goodness. There are days now where I'm outside for maybe ten minutes tops and I've gotten at least three or four bites! Just when I stopped wearing tights! That clutch is pretty amazing, and I love how you paired the pink and turquoise. All the locations are great, but the first one underneath the trees is magical. I just love those big tall shadow-y old trees, so I think that location is awesome! Plus the shadows are really interesting!

  14. Wooo I love that clutch, I think tie dye bags are so cool (especially leather). I have a bug bite that is actually yellow and looks like a huge infection. Not cute, it is definitely going to be a bad year. I actually like the first place best... would flash to fill the shadows blow everything out too much?

  19. I think the second and third shots had the best light. That's so cute about your indecisiveness :) I really like the cotton candy hues in your outfit, especially that self-made skirt! Gorgeous!
