{ E.D.I.T.O.R.I.A.L} The Vintage Soul - I





Hello my sweet people.


I cannot explain how elated I'm to present you with " The Vintage Soul " series. The feeling of finally executing a concept after visualising it for over 6 months is inexplicable. As a blogger - creating unique & visually striking content is the only passion and i have been living and breathing this series in my mind since last August . All i needed was an old museum or a restaurant with vintage vibes . Unfortunately , due to a BMC stay on shoots in museums it could not commence when i was in Bombay last October. In the same month when i returned to Johannesburg, i was frantically searching for museums because A) I love museums and B) I wanted to explore the possibility of shooting in one! The dream came true when i booked my visit to Lindfield Victorian Museum which is a house museum  . The owner of the house who curated this museum with so much love over the years along with her mom is a sweet lady - Katherine Love. Thanks to her and my favorite girls at SLRPHOTOSA - this editorial comes to reality  !

But wait ! It wasn't a piece of cake still.

As luck would have it, load shedding was at its peak that week and scheduled outage at the museum was 4pm which we got to know only when we reached there. We started our shoot at 3.30 pm and finished one look by 4 pm which you will see in Part 2.  Luckily got a few shots during the remaining minutes before load shedding and secretly wishing load shedding would never happen but it did. This look that you see here was shot with the help of a "torch light" provided by Katherine and some sunlight peeking in the dark victorian style home. How we wished there was light but we were very pleased with the results nonetheless as we also made use of the amazing under-construction outdoors which Katherine thought weren't upto the mark.  We thought it was "rustic" and she nodded almost in amazement - Rustic , i see  !  It was a fabulous all girls crew with Sasha & Vanessa from SLRPHOTOSA behind the lens and Katherine kindly helping us with little things throughout the house- such as moving a pile of books which she thought wouldn't be perfect for our shot even though we were ok with it - its like we had a mother figure making sure everything looked neat ! As i always say - there is never anything impossible if you set your mind to it and " The Vintage Soul" series is an example.

Hope you love it as much as we loved shooting this . Cant wait to hear from you in my comment box. Also don't forget to follow me on my insta and Facebook pages along with twitter! Lets get to know each other more !
