Fashion photographer in making


It seems to be the universal rule that to be a successful fashion blogger, you need to have a loving boyfriend or husband (or girlfriend or wife) who is great at taking flattering photos of you, because who can afford professional photographers for every OOTD? 

Like so many other qualities that successful bloggers have, I have to say I'm still working to acquire one of those. Nowadays it seems like every other Taiwanese boy is into photography and owns a DSLR, but unfortunately for me, my boyfriend is not one of them, he is one to live the moment rather than to capture it. I'm slowly training him to take photos of me, but his love for me has proved to be an obstacle. (How weird does that sound?) Case in point: Boyfriend took multiple shots of the above photo before I realized my coat is caught in my bag. When I asked him why he didn't tell me, he replied "But you always look good to me." This happens over and over for smudged eye shadow, flyaway hair, untucked shirt and various other scenarios. Then again, he is the only person in my life that gives me sweet talk, so I should probably be grateful. Hopefully one day he will become skilled and capable of making my stumpy figure look great on film and be kind enough to tell me when I am not looking presentable, in the meantime, we would just have to put up with some silly photos! If you see something out of the ordinary, I'm probably not trying to make an fashion statement, I'm just being clumsy and uncoordinated. 


Who takes photos of you? do you take them yourself?
