I am a big fan of contrasts but sometimes it's good to blend in. I would usually shoot this outfit against a stark color that contradicts the color palette of the dress but this time I went the other way. Blending the leaf print with greens doesn't seem such a bad idea, now that I look at it, right? There are certainly many elements in the picture, which is something I usually refrain from but the results are not bad. The surroundings & the outfit have blended in without creating chaotic composition.
This blending-in advice can sometimes or most times be applied to life-scenarios as well. Blending in with the place, the people and the surroundings can often be a good start to building a successful rapport & creating a comfort factor, especially when you travel. Not always do you need to stand out and be different, sometimes it's good to be blend in and be part of something bigger. Life has its own way of teaching you things, who knew an outfit shoot could make you look at life with this perspective? It's always a good idea to keep your eyes, mind & heart open to learn new things and you can learn so much if only you observe and not just look!
