Photos by: Me. I’m very proud – self portraits at last…!
It’s my favourite vintage 80s blouse again – I’ve been wearing so much blue and burgundy lately that I’ve come out in pink spots 😉
These photos were taken with the ring flash I got for Christmas last year from Mr. Summers… I love the flattering (i.e. wrinkle-disguising) light it gives. When I was doing my photography degree 20 [wince] years ago and desperate to be the next Richard Avedon, I longed to own a ring flash! The composition of the first photo is not perfect (in my eyes) but that’s what comes of insisting I take at least some pictures on my blog and not being able to see through the viewfinder; I so envy Mr. Summers taking most of my pictures – it’s frustrating not being behind the camera. So please bear with me while I get to grips with self portraits! These indoor shots I’m forced to take in the winter are encouraging me to get creative and I hope you like the results, with luck they will only get better (outfits and photos).
