Before I get into all the other photos that I have taken in the last month, I want to address the ones I took in my studio apartment in September.
I promised myself that I would not buy any ‘cool’ photography equipment (besides the necessities) until I can fully grasp the basics, and after looking at these….it’s going to be some time before I buy any cool back drops to play with.
From this shoot, I learned that I have ‘mouth breathing’ tendencies’ and that’s really annoying to me. I still need to work on my aperture skills too, because I felt that these photos would have benefited from that.
Since my background is so basic, I wanted to have a sharper overall appearance. For some reason that seemed to make sense to me and not being able to execute the exact look that I wanted bothers me. Though I must admit that learning what angles and poses I prefer for future self portraits was fun!
And in the next post you will see what I mean by that, because I took Flash (yep, I named my camera ‘Flash’. lol) outside and had a rather long Fall Photo shoot. That post will be by the end of the month, as I am still working on the edits using Adobe Photoshop Express. In the meantime, stop by next week for my ‘Book Cover Artist’ post.
Thank you for reading about my rookie photographer journey and feel free to leave in constructive critique in the comments!
