Fashion photography is a complex art, one which not everyone can master. It requires focus, precise eye for details and extremely sharp vision. Not to mention the hours that go into the styling of the perfect set. So how come if it’s so hard to master, there are people whose photos look effortlessly stunning? Is it something you’re born with or something you learn?
Coming across visually stimulating imagery that provokes thought is rare these days, mostly because many are trying to please the crowd in the eternal quest for more followers. So imagine my surprise when I stumbled across Alison K. Saylor’s profile on Instagram. For lack of better words, I was stunned. I mean, here was a girl whose every single photo had a thread of familiarity in terms of composition, but none of them looked anything alike. There was something about her pictures that draw me instantly like a moth to a flame. They weren’t boring, they just had this sensibility that was so mesmerizingly beautiful that today whenever I see something similar, I call it the Alison effect.

There’s something about this girl that’s so relatable that almost feels like she’s your bff, even if she’s living thousands of miles away. Her Instagram account is one of the few I check constantly every single day and still can’t get enough of. What can I say, she inspires me that much and not just because of her pure aesthetic, but her unparalleled ability to lure me in her story, making me feel like I’m a part of it.
