My 2018 Photoshoot Bloopers

Out of the countless outfit photos I took each year, there will be a myriad of unusable ones, depicting all kinds of things happening mid shoot: my mouth too-wide open from talking, people photo-bombing, me laughing, me asking Shah to point the camera at different angles, me resisting Shah's helpful posing instructions, etc..

And then there are the inevitable accidental mid-blinking snaps (like the first photo below), "blue-steeling" without realising it, wardrobe malfunctions (the white ribbon loop sticking out of my top, aghhh), weird angles (why do I look like the Penguin — Batman's foe, yes — in that photo of me wearing the polka dot top + box wicker bag) having an out-of-place facial expressions, awkward poses (still not 100% comfortable posing next to a crowd!), and so on and so on. There has not been one photoshoot session that goes without a hitch, ever.

Well, while I did deem these photos "unusable" the first few years I photographed my outfits, about two years ago I decided to not waste all of them and compiled some into my 2017 photoshoot bloopers post.

So this time, I present to you a small collection of the "blooper" shots taken in 2018.
Reminder: these are all actual legitimate awkward snaps of me by Shah (whose style of photographing is to click on the camera a hundred times per minute) during the many outfit shoots I did.


Here's to many more wonderful outfit shoots — and the accompanying bloopers — in 2019! On that note, thank you for sticking with me and Affordorable throughout this style journey.

To those who is here for the first time: Hi, Hello, Salam, and Welcome! I hope you like what you see here and will continue coming for more.


  1. Such a creative post! Yes, agree to not wasting photos. Your style is incredible.

    1. Thank you so much for the kind compliment, Mercy!

      I can't take full credit for the bloopers idea though, I saw a blogger did it years ago but she doesn't seem to do it anymore. I on the other hand find the idea interesting so I intend to continue doing it!

  2. Utter cuteness!
    Some of these shots reveal more of your spunky personality and I love that!
    Looking forward to more of ALL that you wish to share in 2019 my friend!!
    Much love, Jude

    1. Thank you Judy! <3 And I can't wait to share more with you too! xxoo

  3. Hahaha love this, thank you for sharing with us! This is such a nice idea.

    1. =D =D Thank YOU for checking out this post, Katia!

  4. I can relate to all of these facial expressions caught on camera, ahahaha. Your hubs style of photography is the same as my mom! Granted, I'm not a professional model but teehee, this post was very fun and oh so true. :D xoxo

    1. I think your mom's - AND Shah's - photography philosophy is something along the line of "the more the merrier and the more to choose from"! I wish I could model better. I get shy in front of strangers sometimes, because the places I shoot at are not always remote.
