is the editing part! There is nothing better than sitting down at a screen and flicking through each and every photograph for the best ones. I sit there are mindlessly scrawl down photo numbers
on a piece of scrap paper. These are my best shots, and then I will shove them all in a folder to edit later.
Editing consists of me doing as little as possible to an image, but improving its quality. Usually I only crop, alter Levels, Brightness/Contrast, Curves and Hue/Saturation. Sometimes I might add a Photo Filter or use a special effect, but very rarely.
Taking photographs is great but seeing what you got afterwards is like opening hundreds of little parcels not really knowing what’s inside!
Had a really fun photoshoot today with some friends. Although they should really make heat-less lights, we were melting in that studio. Might post some photos at the weekend once I’ve sorted them out.
Also my ELF parcel is here!!! :) And every things good, and i cant wait to try it all out too! Going out tomorrow night but have NOTHING to wear :( So may have to bundle something together and hope for the best, or pop into the shops tomorrow. Hmm.
The only downer on this week is the amount of work I am behind on. And need to do but cant be arsed most of the time.
But not bleach blonde like last time, just one shade up……
I know my mum hates it, and it is alot more bother with roots and all and trying to keep it from turning yellow. Plus were heading towards summer so my hair will lighten naturally anyway. And come on, do i really need to stand out any more? Apparently you can see my blonde head bobbing around in a crowd miles off……hmmm
This morning I cracked a false nail on the bus right across the middle, from one side of my finger to the other. But when I tried to pull it off……well….there was blood.
Turns out my actual REAL nail underneath has torn away from the skin and if I would have pulled it would have come off entirely :( Yes, painful! I’m strapping it together with a plaster but god knows how long it will take to grow it out, or if it will even grow out properly now. I don’t want to lose a full nail!!!
So I’ve decided that was time to take all the acrylics off which wasn’t an easy task, my nails are in a right mess and there’s still bits of acrylic on there. Just avoid it! Dear god like the plague.
I have bought some lights for inspiration to sort out my room. Although I can’t paint it or buy new furniture I can defo tidy it, and take down 5 year old posters, and completely paste over my photo wall with magazine images and new photos. Cos that is much easier than taking the whole photo wall down. I want it to be pretty and clean and clear of mess. But I have too much stuff I am not willing to throw away. I don’t understand how some of my friends have bedrooms like show rooms, where the hell do they keep their crap?
Finally we have beautiful weather! Ok, its not warm, in fact its been freezing but just to get some sun on your face is nice. Josh took me out in his car today for the first time, to be honest I expected to be telling him to slow down all the time but he’s a really careful driver. Or he was being just because I was in the car. But I was surprised, he was getting more annoyed with other people making bad moves on the road than making them himself. I felt married and about 30 when we pulled up at Comet to go shopping though! He basically took me on errands. But we drove up past the lake which was nice :)
