Unfortunately the flies are still invading, but since they only hang out in the house at night I made sure to get all my photo-taking done before sundown so they wouldn’t all be attracted to my fancy lighting. I’ve been on a wig buying kick the past month or so, so I had a few wigs I wanted to photograph for the blog where I review them. They’re not thrilling photos, but if you want to see what they look like here’s a little collage:
That’s just two of them; there’s a third one that’s short and spiky and really cute, but I didn’t get a chancel to edit any of those wig-pics. I did, however, wear the short one in the levitation photos I tried after shooting all the wig photos, so you can get a glimpse of it in the single photo I’ve had a chance to process from that part of the shoot.
First of all – are those pants freakin’ fabulous or what?! I went to get my manicure and pedicure Saturday morning, and after finishing up I made it my task of the day to find something interesting I could use in photographs that afternoon; I haven’t made any costume purchases in awhile, and was feeling the need to jazz up the closet. There are actually a few shops in the town square where I get my nails done that have interesting clothes for my photoshoots, and they’re all pretty inexpensive to boot. Those AMAZING pants I found at a store called Em and Lee and they were about $45, then I scored the top at Charming Charlie for a whopping ten bucks (I’m wearing it backwards, by the way – the front just looks like a regular t-shirt so I flipped it around to give the outfit more visual interest). Honestly I cannot get over my joy at finding this outfit – it’s got one of my favorite color combinations with the blue and red, plus the white really makes the pattern pop. I’d never wear those pants out of the house because they’re way too clingy in certain areas plus they’re a mile too long, but for photos they are perfection. I will get loads of use out of them.
And that pose, by the way, was done using the technique I’ve been working with to create my levitation photos – I was actually sitting on a small step stool, which I edited out of the composite shot. I did many shots using the stool and very little jumping this time, since I’ve leaped myself into just about every possible shape by this point and wanted to create some new ones. This was probably the best one of the bunch, which means everything else I edit will be anticlimactic, but there are still more I want to work with anyway.
Oh, and it also gives you a glimpse of that fabulous short-haired wig.More pics of that to come also – it’s adorable!
