whenever you do a style post, there are always "ones that got away..." or pictures that you decide not to use, for whatever reason. my photos go through a series of filters, as i decide which ones to put out there.
my process for paring down involves:
1) taking photos, immediately deleting the ones i hate from the camera
2) uploading photos to laptop, deleting ones i hate
3) editing them, delete some more
4) choosing 7-10 photos to upload to flickr
5) finally, creating a new post, deciding which ones go best together, choosing the order, and again- eliminating pictures that don't fit with the theme.
often after i've uploaded a photo i previously liked, i compare it with other photos and decide it doesn't belong with the rest.
seeing as i don't have a new style post for you today (no camera this weekend!) i thought i'd show you a few photos from recent posts that came this close....but didn't make the cut!
i liked this photo... but i felt that i looked a bit stiff, and my smile is a little forced/ blank. reminds me of a little kid posing for pictures for their parents.
i actually really loved the composition of this photo! the painting, my pose, the creepy mannequin... but that is one goofy smile :P it didn't really fit in with the tone of the other photos in this set.
again, i wasn't really fond of the facial expression in this picture. and i'm picky about the way my bangs look... i don't like them here. otherwise, i really wish i could've included this one... i think it's the only picture from this set where i'm looking at the camera!
i guess there's nothing really wrong with any of these pictures. but with each of them something was a little "off" for me.
for photos or otherwise, what's your revising process like?
lots of love,
