What with seeing everyone's outtake photos lately, I just had to post some of mine. I swear, sometimes it feels like 90% of a day's shoot are ridiculous photos like these. The things my face does on a regular basis are just terrible! Haha. Granted, sometimes I end up taking silly photos on purpose, but I think the goofiest ones are the unintentional outtakes. I went back to last summer looking through my deleted photos, so here are some of my outtakes from summer 2009...
I think the thing I like about blogs is that they aren't magazines. We don't have thousands of dollars to spend on retouching, photographers, sets, etc. We do everything ourselves (or with the help of a friend/boyfriend/husband). Another thing I love about blogs is that we represent ourselves accurately, not like magazines that manipulate people's bodies with retouching so that they aren't even anatomically correct sometimes (I can spend hours sifting through photoshop disaster sites. It's like watching a horrific car wreck, I just can't look away). I love that we are just us! And at least for me, I don't retouch anything except colors/contrast and I hope you guys know that I try to represent myself accurately here. I promise more outtake posts. Trust me, I have hundreds.
Welcome! We're stoked you're here. Get cozy and we hope you're inspired to create a creative and joy-filled life!
