A different kind of style post

For those of you who remember that random style post I wrote in May, we’re back with another installment! Ethan’s been experimenting with men’s fashion blogging this month and gave himself a project: No Blue December. His favorite color is blue and he wears it all the time, so to challenge himself to get creative, he’s going the entire  month of December without wearing blue. He decided professional photographs might work more in his favor than grainy cell phone photos, so we got together last weekend and documented the first 15 of his outfits. My scatterbrained self was running late (big shock, right?) and as such, we were left with 25 minutes of daylight when I arrived. FAIL. But since attending J&M Walk Through A Wedding in June (finally blogging that tomorrow!), I now feel pretty comfortable with a simple one-light set-up, so I decided we’d give it a go anyways. I’m a natural light photographer through and through, but learning to use off-camera flash for portraits after dark was SUCH a good exercise for me. Now I know that if I HAD to do it again, I could!

Enjoy a smattering of photos from last weekend’s style adventures!

After 2-3 outfits, we broke out the flash set-up.

And then my not-so-little brother Seth arrived and wanted to know why we didn’t let him know we were shooting. So he ran back to the house, threw something together, and came back out to have his photo taken, too.
