WIWW: Baby Blue & Grey

Since the weather finally broke, I decided to give my tripod a chance... and in doing so, I realized two things.... that I actually have a nice little picturesque front yard and turning the camera on myself made me realize that the relationship between a person and their camera can actually be a funny and beautiful thing...
 
When you set up the tripod to capture yourself, it's a process. A long and tedious process that can aggravate and irritate you to no end, if you are a beginner and have no idea what you are doing. But as you settle in to the picture taking, by the 15th-ish picture, the camera starts to capture that side of you that is rarely caught on camera and no selfie can, even if you think you have. That side of you that you rarely let out of its bottle. That side of you that holds all of your insecurities and flaws. That side of you that is most vulnerable, but that is most beautiful.

I hate to confess this, but I actually took these pictures on Saturday and actually felt kinda silly doing it, even though it was just me and my tripod. Is this a common occurrence for bloggers who take outfit pictures? I'm talking about the silly part. Oh, and I had to take like 40 pictures to get these three. Is that also common? I know I'm rather picky, but yeah...

  2. For me taking pictures of myself with a tripod is a learning experience. It gets easier as you learn what poses you like, what lighting you like, etc. Just have fun with it! :)

  5. I got a tripod for Christmas but haven't used it yet because it's been such a cold winter! (And probably partly because I know I'm going to feel totally awkward...) You look great though!
