“I grabbed my camera and went to the streets,” shared Michelle Jun, one half of new street style blog You Just Got Spotted. With twin sister Gabby, the Canadian duo have be trotting around the world snapping up some of fashion’s brightest stars. Editors, off-duty models and fashion lovers fill the pages of their street style blog–and it’s certainly worth adding to your bookmarks.
Here, Michelle Jun tells us what it’s like working with her sister and some of their dream subjects:
Eye on Style: “We take detailed shots of things that grab people’s attention, be it a simple accessory or a distinct fabric pattern. We also strive to take natural shots. Photographing subjects in action enhances the effect of the shot and gives it context.”
Street Style Savvy: “For many people, it is difficult to look at photos of professional models and incorporate that style with their own style. For me, an integral part of street style photography is that it offers a natural path into real-life fashion.”
Sister Act: “As twins, we are a natural complement to each other. While I am more involved in taking the photographs, Gabby edits the photos since she is still attending school. When we are on the streets together, it’s like having another set of eyes looking out for interesting styles.”
Dream Subjects: “Gabby’s dream subject is Angelo Flaccavento. She is simply in love with his distinct preppy style–especailly his glasses and beard. My dream subjects are Géraldine Saglio and Capucine Safyurtlu. To me they are the epitome of Parisienne chic.”
