As many of you have noted, "my man" (sorry I can't help but chuckle at this phrase) is often seen in the bokeh of my photos wearing a suit and always, always a pocket square. Well, that's pretty much what he wears 95% of the time, weekends included. What can I say? The guy likes his suits. I can't even begin to get into how picky he is about them. It's funny because my favorite suits of his are the generic so-so material, modern ones from stores like H&M (you know, stuff guys in this century actually wear), whereas he prefers his fancy shmancy three-piece bespoke suits from some guy in England who only makes like one or two trips to the states every year to fit his clients here. Maybe I'm just envious because when we go out like this, he gets way more attention than I do (heh heh).
Anyway, I thought it'd be fun to post his outfit detail from this past weekend. These were haphazardly shot as an afterthought so they definitely don't do his clothes justice!
It shouldn't come as a surprise that there are suspenders hiding under that vest there. I voted for no-tie otherwise that'd be in here too. I won't even broach the topic of shoes this time...
I say those shots were an afterthought, because he was actually shooting me for the most part that afternoon. We used the 85mm on all of these. The lens is nice for these kind of full body shots because you get better bokeh than on the 50; however, there is some NASTY spherochromatism (color fringing if you will) with this lens that is pretty obvious on the larger sized photos. Glowing green bokeh? Ugh, no thanks.
Posing to not look short always poses a huge challenge. Perhaps I need to bust out the 4.5+ inch heels next time. This one is probably my favorite from the set.
As I was putting together this post, this lightbulb went off and I was like, "HEY THIS COULD BE A SERIES." Mayybe? :)
