And it was all yellow

I've always been scared of yellow. Not of the colour itself, but to use it in pictures or what I wear. So the only thing to do was to stand up to my fear and do a shoot based around yellow! Yes! I found this dress that my mum used to wear in the 60s that she gave to me when I was clearing out my loft a few weeks ago. It's bright yellow, so I thought it would be perfect for a little 60s themed shoot.

I booked lovely model Maysoon (yes the girl who was on Big Brother last year looking fabulously gorgous) who was up for some 60s fun! Make-up girly Melodie Briere did a great job in doing hair and make-up for the occasion. Lovely girls, great team = great day and lovely results. I loved Maysoon's dark features, which was really brought out when I put her in the yellow dress against a yellow background. Probably breaking many photography rules with yellow on yellow, but you be the judge of if it worked! I liked it and thought the yellow/black vibe worked for me. Also turned some of them into black & white which I may post up at a later point.

It was one of the hottest days of the summer, so after we had done the 60s vibe, we headed in to London close to Buckingham Palace to capture some more commercial, London chick pictures. After me and my car being searched for anything terrorist like and practically being escorted out of St James park, I was all good to go. Do I look like a terrorist? I felt my creativity being a little crushed by security guards and stupid rules that you can't photograph near the palace without a license. Oh well, found some ways around it, so got some good shots :).

And it was all yellow....
