Andreja and I shot my first outfit video yesterday in the freezing cold (the things friends do for you ... Thanks! :) ). I've been thinking about outfit videos (i.e. a new way to present your outfits on fashion blogs) for months. It took this long to start shooting because first I had to get a camera (it helps immensely if you want to do video).
After getting the camera I underwent a period of drawing tragicomic storyboards ("tragicomic" referring to my, well, tragicomic lack of drawing skills) and thinking about how to transform something that's usually static into un-static ... basically making everything you usually see in outfit photos move. Not easy. I studied filmmaking, but they definitely didn't teach us that in school.
Why would I steer away from the standard tried-and-true approach of taking outfit photos? Mostly because I wanted to try something new. I'm also interested to see how outfit photos compare to outfit videos once we'll have done more of them (it takes a while until your perspective becomes clear).
Although video is not very prominent in fashion blogging (yet?), I'm planning to shoot at least one video per week for Dressful now (not only outfit videos).
It should also be noted that I made a ton of mistakes during the shoot yesterday and learned so much to use in the future. Practice makes perfect!
In the video I'm wearing United Nude ankle boots, 'S Max Mara coat and Marjeta Grošelj bag.
