This photo is a practice run for a holiday photo shoot I'm planning!
Not precisely getting Tangled in the Tinsel, but close!
A few things...(1) I'm happy with my light string drape look. Next shoot with this get up though, and I will change to a location with more window light - diffused again like it is behind me in this picture. I really like the soft light coming in from the window, I just want more of it because my face is really only illuminated by the light bulbs on the string and light below the face is not the best look. (2) I wore a different shirt for you, so be happy. (3) I like the book case in the background, but the angle and placement of the subject [me] is not balanced in the photo and it's a bit distracting.
++Note: I am also taking film photos of all of these poses and I will try to post those as I get into darkroom to develop and print them.
FOR IMPROVEMENT I would fix my hair and add more diffused light and balance the subjects' placement better.
AS FOR THE UNIVERSE - I'm learning to not be so critical of how I look in photos (or anywhere). This self-portrait exercise is also a kind of 30-day challenge to look into my own face and stop cringing. Ha! Such deep lessons in photographing myself. Well let's keep it up.
JOY. She said. LET'S SHOOT FOR JOY.
Once in awhile, well, BAM!
