Where to take your outfit photos when it's raining outside?

Or even worse - it's winter and you're cold and your vintage shoes are soaked in the snow? I'm asking you a question of a serious matter! Where to hide and where to take a decent photo when the weather is crap and without being stared at, without being asked to pay for taking these photos? In case you're owning a glorious mansion, you can easly ignore this. And you can ask me to stay for Christ sake!

Although while I'm writing this post there's even a little bit of sun outside, I remember I was all dolled up and ready to go when it started to rain. And continued to pour during the whole day. And the day after. And the next day too. Then we decided to take a try at my mum's photo studio. As you may know, I am a big fan of beautiful surroundings, like architecture and landscapes in my outfit post, but I think this worked out pretty well, don't you agree? I love how the dress blended with the background and how my vintage fur coat matched well with the couch. So I can tell I'm pleased with the result. But since it's December and the weather is getting gloomier each day, I ask YOU, my dear fellow fashion bloggers - where do you take your outfit photos during winter? In the caffes? Libraries? Museums? You're own apartment? Hit me with ideas, I'm constantly looking for locations and it's harder than it seems! (#firstworldproblems)












What I wore:
Dress- vintage (The House of Nu-Mode, Torronto, Canada)
Fur coat - vintage
Hat - flea market (Hrelić)
Gloves - Buried Clothes
Purse - Retro House
Shoes - vintage (from Sweden)
Brooch - Micica
Earrings - ebay

  1. These came out gorgeously, but I know that feeling of intense frustration at the weather all too well!! It's been raining constantly in the UK most of the past weeks and I haven't been able to get any shots outside either. So what I'm planning to do, as it's Christmas an' all, is get hold of some lights and take some photos with my Christmas tree. I think the key to doing them in your house is moving furniture to clear a good space and having something interesting in the background like that... otherwise they don't always look so good. Otherwise, I just wait until it stops raining... But I am thinking if it persists I might try to incorporate a pretty umbrella in deliberately! Problem is you just can't beat natural lighting...

    1. I am so grateful for this little community because otherwise I would think I'm crazy worrying about such stuff so much. People think it's way too easy to put on some clothes and just take a shot but it's a lot of work behind, for example - moving your furniture! That's an actual physical job! Haha, no really I know what you mean in every way. Thank you for the Christmas lights idea, I could manage something similar maybe. And yes, I was meaning to get some fancy vintage umbrella but somehow they're always too pricey and I don't want to spend too much on something that could easily break or get lost. :/

  4. These look lovely! I guess you had professional lighting in your mother's studio - that's the problem with public or private spaces, they might be lovely backdrops but the lighting's just not good enough. At home, I have to use overhead lights and every lamp I can lay my hands on to make sure my pics come out well enough! xx

    1. Thank you so much my darling! Yes, we had the special lights and I can guess the issues that goes with the absence of one. I often get frustrated because I see an amazing place or a caffe in the town but it's too crowded or too dark or it's forbidden to take photos (museums). I have to admit I don't like to take photos at home, no matter what I would always rather choose any other place.

  5. Beautiful outfit! I adore blue and brown together. It's chic, elegant and very becoming!

    I struggle with this same point, too, especially since our little condo is neither the natural light nor space needed to really successfully take good photos indoors, even with all of our photographic lighting (and flash) equipment employed (again, not enough space for full body shoots). Honestly, we usually just scale back on the total number of shoots and try to take those that we do on "milder" winter days, when frostbite isn't a very real risk.

    Here's to the hope that spring - and a dry-ish one at that - comes really early for both of us next year!

    Big hugs & happy weekend wishes,
    ♥ Jessica

  6. Oh, it's so hard when you can't go outside to take your regular photos ~ but that being said, these studio photos turned out so great for complimenting your fabulous outfit with the blue & browns.

    I definitely agree with CiCi though ~ my best indoor photos are taken with a simple background (plain wall, or a chair) so that the outfit could still shine. Also, all the lights ~ such a must! ❤

  7. I've been having issues with this so much this season. I bought a new light specifically for indoor photos, but it's not completely cutting it for me. I don't mind taking photos in the house, but lighting is the issue. We have an old farmhouse with not a lot of natural light coming in. So I'd have to have lots of lights to make it look good, and I certainly don't want to take everything out and put it all away each time we want to do a photo shoot. We are considering setting up a small photo area in our basement with proper lights and a basic background. Once it's finished you are welcome to come and use it anytime :)

    I love that you were able to use your Mom's photo studio and that seems like a wonderful option. Yo are lucky that you have it.
