Smile

Click for my inspiration song for this post. 

Ever just had one of those days where nothing is wrong, but somehow it just feels wrong?  Its not been a bad day at all.  You didn’t lose your job, no one stole your dog, your phone is still in one piece,  the kids are being good, your nagging mom hasn’t nagged…. everything is great, but for some reason you can’t even muster the energy to put a smile on your face?  Today is one of those days for me, so I use blogging for therapy!

There is something very cathartic about just losing yourself in clothes and hair and accessories and poses and lighting.  It might not be art to some, because basically its just hoping on a pose ball and clicking the button to take the picture.  Sure it can be that easy, especially if you have a high end PC and don’t really have to do any work to get all the edges smooth and lighting perfect.  But its more than that especially if you are trying to set a mood or trying to convey an emotion.  For me, since I rarely use pose stands for most of my pictures, its waiting for that perfect moment when my avi is finally looking at the camera, or looking in just the right direction to match how I’m feeling.  I always worry that I drive my friends nuts, because it takes me forever to get the angle I really want.  It’s also more than wanting likes and good feedback.  Of course, everyone wants to have their work be appreciated or told positive things, but It’s the feeling of knowing that you captured something real in a pixel face.  That is why I love SL photography and that is what I look for in other people’s work too.

Ok, I’m done rambling now lol… time for the stuff you really wanna know…
