Photoshoots

I only really take pictures of animals, not really people. I thought I would give it a go anyways. I was really happy with the results. My friend needed some photos taken for college, so I promised I'd do it, however it looked so much cooler (no pun intended) in the snow







And here's one I took earlier in 2011 (just the one photo, I took hundreds!) of another friend. I think I have improved!



Just thought I'd share

Wow! Those are great! And you didn't edit any?
Love the feeling in the last one, so bouncy and fun

Missing you always

They are edits yeah, I was using my camera from quite far away so I used focal softening in 1 and 2 to help out a little. Don't get me wrong, there was nothing wrong with the originals, I just like to enhance the images to make them look a little more vibrant. I think a lot of people edit. It's hard to get stuff like that with just the camera. I mean the lighting and everything is crazy. I really love the lighting in picture #2, it's the only one that I didn't use the flash on

and the one of Jess at the bottom I really liked too

Thank you though!

Thank you yeah we were freezing! The snow was real deep in the woods. I had to laugh at Becki though. She's trekked up their wrapped up and then had to wear that. The shoot was about half an hour so it wasn't too bad. But you can't tell me you wouldn't be cold if you had to stand in heels in the snow



I had my wellies on up to my knees, shorts and the thickest tights imaginable, two tops, a hoody and my big coat

Yeah, sometimes I wish I could just be a guy for the day and relax for once rather than pithering around worrying how I look compared to other girls

It depends on where you live when comparing looks. If you're in Stourbridge, Halesowen and up to Quinton then looks is quite important. If you're in Tipton, Old Hill, Cradley, Netherton, Dudley and surroundings looks is the last concern.

Psh, just do it anyways! I lived in Palm Beach and still couldn't give a crap unless I was going somewhere nice and I still got flirted with, especially at the college! I never wear makeup, wear whatever is around the house, so usually babydoll cut t-shirt and jeans. It's all about how you wear it Wear that cozy t-shirt, comfy jeans and flip flops, but work it and walk like you don't give a crap about what others think and you still look good! At least, that's what I swear by! Besides, people are always gonna judge you no matter what you wear or how good you look, so just do whatever you want lol

I like your thinking Jenny! I used to wear my 24 inch blue extensions, a ton of make up and the most over the top clothes for college. Now I wear black polo shirts, black tights and some shorts with some vans and no make up hardly. I gave up. But I am however one of those people that looks at my self and goes ewww for the last two weeks I haven't been in college (really sick) and for the first week I didn't go out. I literally slobbed around in a pair of Jacks spongebob pajama bottoms and a giant over sized t-shirt with my hair tied up

haha. Well you looked nice when I saw you at the MerryHell.

You know when I was growing up. We often talked about which are the best oriental women to get married to and the No. 1 Woman is a Geisha - she will serve her husband well.

After the blue I attempted to dye my hair more of a natural red. Didn't really like it though (none of these are edited or anything, just straight off my iPod)







And just like an hour ago I did my hair brown. But it came out virtually black anyways

Daisy,
Great pictures! So pretty! And also, you are gorgeous.

On the 15th, I'm going back to my natural brown from my bleached hair. You have brown now too?
