every time i post a picture of myself on this blog, or on the two birds page, i feel a little silly. i don't know how models do it. i think i look silly posing...or FEEL silly posing, i guess is a better word for it. but i love the look of the artsy pose.
so how do i do it? i guess for one, i have to not take it so seriously. i need to have fun with it, realize that not every picture is going to turn out perfectly. and i also need to be aware that not everyone is going to laugh at me for trying to be creative.
i grew up in a big family of girls. we always make fun of each other and laugh at each other...don't get me wrong, we all love each other very much, but i grew up not taking myself very seriously. so i guess i have it in the back of my head that people will think i'm silly for pretending that i'm cool or pretty or a model.
so here goes, from now on i'm going to try to not worry so much about it. i am going to try to be more artsy and creative when taking pictures. starting with a great backdrop is key, so i will have to scout out some nearby locations. and then i guess just keep practicing...my kids might find me posing in front of the mirror...i will let them laugh at me.
do you have any ideas? any advice? i could use all the help i can get!
