It’s great to know that you can always find amazing photo shoot-worthy items at T.J.MAXX, with a new rotation of designer items constantly arriving. I felt ultra “downtown cool” in the duds I selected, all available at, of course, T.J.MAXX (jacket: DOMA, dress, Zac Posen, shoes, Donald J. Pliner), while talking a stroll down memory lane, posing in front of the now-closed famous nightclub spot, Don Hill’s, I place I frequented while a youngster studying at New York University.
In the span of just a few blocks, we set up at multiple locations, and garnered tips and demos along the way of how best to take pics, pose, and crop the photo, so the less Photoshop needed later, the better! During the photo shoot, Amy answered a variety of my questions (What do I do with my feet? How do I make my hands less awkward? What’s the best setting for shooting outside? What’s okay to leave in the frame, and what is too distracting?), while us blogger gals coupled up and took pics of each other utilizing Amy’s essential tips.
Here’s the resulting photos from my shoot – do you like? Special thanks to Caitlin Miller of StyleBistro for the pics of me! Special thanks to T.J.Maxx for this awesome opportunity, and to Amy Creyer for her patience and sharing trade secrets (p..s – check out her T.J.MAXX Fall Style Scout video, here!). See below for the rest of the images, as well as Amy’s handy tip chart!
