three weeks ago I started a 30x30 Challenge -Inspired originally by Kendi at Kendi Everyday and shared with me by Kate at the Small Things Blog...here's how it works:
1. Take 30 items in your closet.
2. Make 30 outfits.
well this is week three and so far it has been an awesome experience - however it was not so much the creativity in selecting my outfits that made this a unique experience but rather the process of getting the photos this week - let me explain...
I live by myself - which means unless I am around family or friends to take pictures of me (and sometimes it's not appropriate to ask for friends to take photos) I have to take my own photos and this actually just occurred to me this week - as it took me literally 50+ photo attempts to get the self-timing down on my camera, as well as find the right height to get a photo of me from head to toe, along with getting the right lighting, etc... - ahhh - let me just tell you it went a little something like this...
first attempt - kitchen by my clock (too dark), kitchen by the sink, with the window behind (could not get my shoes), bedroom with several angles (the list of problems is to extensive - let me just say it is not smart to balance your camera on a pile of cotton balls on the edge of your papasan chair - ahhh the aggrevation), and then I went outside, where I preceded to attempt to take photos at so many angles in my yard - you almost saw all of my outfits from my camera sitting in the grass and me laying on the ground - okay, no not really - but you get the idea - my neighbors now think I am oober vain and have a creepy fetish with pictures of myself...anyway - I am laughing now thinking about the experience and I hope you enjoy my outfits this week...
