{almost like floating}

Have been trying desparately to find time to play with photography again, and every time I want to see the world through a lens, I find myself drawn to this Vogue IT shoot by Paolo Roversi.

A simple blank canvas . . . blissful, soft and ethereal lighting, and a quiet serenity that is almost like floating . . .

the photos are amazing, really!
Paolo Roversi is one of my favorites photographer, specially, for the "soft and ethereal lighting" of his photography.

Thanks for post this.

There's this kind of mysterious atmosphere to this editorial and I like it. I love how the pictures don't look perfect or how the pint isn't focused so well.

you can't beat using black and white with the odd gentle colour to create a pure and elegant atmosphere, and lose the focus a little on the right subject and you have a lovely dreamy magic- I wish I could do this!

How are you my BFF? Miss chatting, but I'll probably be MIA a lot over the next couple of weeks...things are getting busier by the hour!!

fashion addict – love the description of “mysterious atmosphere, and the fact that it’s slightly unfocused really adds to this mood

the lil bee – LOL – can always count on you for completely fun comments

leslie – moody is a great way to describe Roversi’s work

driftwood shack – “dreamy magic” sounds perfect!

Seesaw Designs + Melissa – hadn’t thought of these images as creepy or eerie until you mentioned it, but can definitely see it now, especially with the dark eye make-up and almost ghost-like shots . . .

Melissa – things are wonderful, thanks for asking! Can completely understand the busy-ness – summer is always such a hectic {and fun} time. Hope your week is going beautifully so far.

I also love those couture poses... the hunched back, the elbows out.

I'd love to see your images if you jump back into photography yourself :)
