The #1 source for fashion inspiration from real people around the world.
This was probably one of the most challenging photos that I’ve ever taken in my entire life and I’ll tell you exactly why that was. My day started off pretty rough when my camera unfortunately just stopped working the day upon arrival of my package which was very opposing to my plan because I had promised myself that I would make my #GypsyWarrior contest entry that day. Well that’s the misfortunes I’ve been getting when buying used camera online, so fast forward a few hours later after I actually had to run out and buy a new one and I return home as the sun was about to set. I quickly throw on every ounce of jewelry, layers upon layers, and finishing with the most importantly spiked denim vest from Gypsy Warrior. I grab my tripod and I go into the forest, to the tree fort where I usually go to when taking photos by myself. I set up the camera angle and decorate the trees with colorful flags and just as I go to set my camera to sync with my remote I realize that the camera model doesn’t have the option to use a trigger. So unfortunately my only option in the moment was to use the self-timer to take the photos but in this case would be quite tedious to climb several branches and strike a pose all in just the 10 seconds that I had before the timer would go off and take the one photo. It was really exhausting in the scorching freezing wind that I had probably only ran the remotely embarrassing obstacle course about 5 times. But the reason I stuck with it because I had a plan and when I say I’m going to do something, I am going to do it and give it my all. I realized during this that I was channeling what a true gypsy warrior would do. After all, I was lucky enough to a few non-blurry photos, which I’m proud to share this one with you! I hope you like it along with my unnecessary detailed dramatic story! Till next time! When I have an actual photographer to help me take better photos :D
