Slouch it Off

Wednesday, 10 December 2014

Hello lovely people, how's your Wednesday going? The title is my own take of Taylor Swift's Shake it Off (which I love); but slouchy because of my very comfy slouchy jumper.
These photos were actually quite spontaneous. I decided to go for a walk and take my camera, I was going to go charity shopping but halfway there I decided to go charity shopping instead. The editing was also spontaneous, I had a bit of an editing block the first time I came round to these pictures and then I looked at them again and went "why not try sticking those pictures together" and "ooh I could add me from that one in the middle" and then I had my first picture! After that is pretty easy because you have the idea of what style you're going for and just have to fit the rest of your editing around that.
I always thought this jumper was way too unflattering to wear as a dress, but when I wore it out the other day I just thought "Well fuck it" and it was the best decision ever because I love it like that. Lessons learned.

It was a really strange day when I took these photos though, it was one of those really quiet and eerie  winter/autumn Sunday afternoons. I don't know if anyone else ever experiences these, but there was barely anyone out and everything just seemed a little strange. The quiet is always nice for taking pictures though because you don't get people gawking at you. And the wintery/autumness is great because there's nice orange leaves everywhere and while the light lasts is beautifully golden.
I always ramble about such random stuff when I post stuff, I usually have an idea of what I want to sy when I take my photos and then it disappears, so I just say whatever comes to my brain when I schedule my posts and it's all a bit weird.
Aaanyways enough of the even more rambling I'm off now, next post should be up on Saturday at 8pm (GMT) so stay tuned for that. Hope you enjoyed this post!

  3. I love your pictures! Not only you choose great settings, but also take really good photos! Here's a question: Do you put any special effect on them? because I like the way your photographies look :)

    1. I don't use a filter or action if that's what you're asking btu I guess I edit them all similarly. In photoshop I mainly use Exposure, Selective Colour, brightness/contrast and sometimes I use curves (especially the midtone colour picker). I am starting to make a series of photoshop tutorials so I could do one on how I edit my photos?
      It is different for every set though depending on how I want them to come out and how good quality the original photos are :) <3
