The fear of Ajayi Philip’s camera getting seized. The chances of any decent lighting. Location. Location. Location. These were the prevailing thought that lingered through my mind as he prepped to shoot. That was the source of the knots in my tummy.
I clearly remember seeing half a dozen security guards and thinking to myself: this will never work, the shoot today is wasted. In the midst of all that, I got the weirdest epiphany – what’s the fuss about locations anyway?
I live in what can be described as a nice estate so why can’t I have these shoots in the streets, or in the house itself? Will my pictures get too boring? Will they become too predictable?
You might be wondering why I went through all that stress just to use that particular location when the estate was right there, beneath my nose, right?
Sometimes it’s not just about the outfit you wear, you need a location that will totally make your outfit pop. You see, this particular location my dear friends, is one of the wonders of Abuja, lol. At least for us fashion bloggers.
Ajayi is the photographer responsible for these bomb photos. How we were able to pull it off, at this location, is something I can’t quite explain because apparently it’s a “no photography zone” ugh.
I’d love to know what your opinion is, do you think the locations a fashion blogger chooses for photos is that much of a big deal?
Hey, if you also have some amazing locations please, share them in the comments.
