We have never exhibited anything of our own creation before in a public or virtual space before. In the past we've done reviews, interviews and launches. Partly because we've been very focused on blogging, figuring out how to write, edit and use social media and partly because we just didn't dare go there! Lately we been inspired by cherry blossom and other things that inspire happy. 'Starring' was born from that inspiration.
So welcome to 'Starring' the first in a new a blog series on Style Canteen. This is a bloggers collaboration between Style Canteen, photographer David Nyanzi and our real person modelling for the day Jamilah from The Prima Donna Writes. We launch our street shoots with a colour filled leg wear story shot in Shoreditch East London. The idea was to play with the traditional 'straight up' style of street photography and perk it up some what with lots of colour and detail. We're In Happy with the end results, we think it come together quite well. What do you think?
