I recently got together with photographer Sarah Hogan to style a few test shoots. It’s always fun to team up with someone and just play around, experiment, with no agenda and no clients to please. It always ends up getting those creative juices flowing which really helps when I do have clients to please.
I wanted to shoot some overhead still-lifes so we gathered some props, Sarah worked her magic with the lighting and we just piddled around using folded white paper, wrapping paper, and wood as backgrounds. I didn’t buy anything for this shoot, instead I scoured my home and my props boxes and challenged myself to come up with new ways to re-style everything. It’s always a great way to test yourself and to be creative.
It’s probably from my Anthropologie merchandising days, but I love a bit of colour-grouped styling. Pick a few colours, pull props that fit, and style away.
