So the other week, myself and Hannah got together to film my Winter Look Book. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do on my YouTube channel after seeing so many of the YouTubers that I watch, doing them too. If you don’t know what a ‘look book‘ is, well really it’s just showing off your wardrobe and styling it around a nice backdrop so that everyone wants to buy your look. I stayed around Hannah’s in Ascot instead of just coming up for the day. Ascot is such a beautiful place, a location I could see myself settling down in. It’s just far enough away from London that it feels very peaceful and it’s away from the hustle and bustle of city life. However, it’s only a 50 minute journey into Waterloo.
We decided upon two locations to shoot the look book using my Olympus E-PL6…
Ascot Race Course
Virginia Waters Lake/Park
These are both stunning locations and would provide a beautiful backdrop for when we recorded my chosen styles. Unfortunately due to the sun going in a lot quicker than we anticipated, we only managed to film two styles at Virgina Waters. However, never fear as I’m heading off to Aberystwyth tomorrow and shall be taking with me, my camera for daily vlogging but to also capture the last two styles for my look book.
I watched a few Look Book’s before shooting mine as I wanted to gage what sort of theme people went for and how I could make mine personal and unique to my own personality.
I was a little disappointed that we didn’t manage to film all four looks and I was considering just making the look book shorter by just doing the two styles that we’d filmed. However, I don’t want to rush something creative and professional like this. I want it to be perfect and for it to be one of my little stamps of creativity for 2016. So without further a do, here’s some of the pictures/stills we took whilst shooting in Virginia Water. I hope you like them!
