HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 1935

post #29011 of 43840

@upr_crust  for some reason, I find that your lifestyle pictures always do you more justice than your "posed" ones. But it's not the first time someone tells you this, so I guess that makes my comment somewhat irrelevant! I understand the limitations of taking a picture everyday with the intention of feeding this thread!

 

By the way, you didn't happen to snap of picture or two of @RogerP's shoe collection?

This is actually what I was wearing this time last year - the only reason I am posting it is that it was a picture featured in the online brochure for the event this time around, which was sent to me today!

I believe the "lifestyle" photos have the advantages of a living photographer (normally, my husband), and mood-enhancing situations (i.e. being on vacation or some place more fun than my living room at an early hour of the morning), so your comments are appreciated, but you understand why the normal forensic photos are of lesser quality.

As for RogerP's shoe collection, I only saw the shoes on his feet (double monks - Vass, most likely, I believe, and quite handsome) - dinner was in downtown Toronto, not at Roger's shoe closet, oddly enough smile.gif.

Each serves a different purpose and I don’t think they can be compared.

 

Among other things the usual posed outfit pictures (including the ‘robopose’) allow us to look at the outfit the way a tailor would, or as close as possible given a two-dimensional image.  If a full shot, it makes it possible to get a sense of the whole gestalt and the way the parts contribute to the whole.  In short, it facilitates evaluation.

 

Lifestyle shots are obviously more entertaining and there’s nothing wrong with that.  And sometimes they provide a different angle, or by showing a different posture might reveal other information not otherwise observable in the standard fit pic, such as how a fabric drapes under less artificial conditions.  But mostly they're fun.

 

Obviously the entertainment value of a ‘lifestyle’ shot depends on the lifestyle in question, however.  Do you want to see pictures of upr_crust’s lifestyle?  Of Roycru's?  Yes, you do.  Do you want to see pictures of mine?  No, you do not.  :)

 

Cheers,

 

Ac

Señor Crust, that picture of you on the train platform is a winner.

Really like this suit, not so much a fan of the shirt with this look, think plain white would have been better

 

The white shirt might have been the easy solution, but i wanted to do sth different with the blue stripes, @Scbrown

@Academic2

Creepiest photo of the day.

 

@Mr. Six and @sebastian mcfox

Damn, you both look damn freaking damn good.

 

@Dennis Walter

Great looking suit. The next purchase that I am planning is a houndstooth suit. I just haven't found a good place yet.

Sadly, lifestyle pictures require one to have a lifestyle.
