I’m not sure about other photographers but sometimes I have no idea how a picture is going to turn out when I start editing it. I really wish I’d saved a raw image of this one because it was so dark when I finally came to edit it and I really didn’t think that it did the hair justice. A year ago I would have just scrapped it and gone back to take a new raw shot so this picture means quite a lot to me in that it helps me to realise how much I’ve improved. I still have a long way to go and lots to learn but I’m ‘happy’ with this one for now. In fact, I like this photo so much I’ve made it my profile picture in Second Life too.
About the Stuff
As I said I really wanted to do the hair justice. It’s new from Truth and available at The Vintage Fair and comes in all the usual Truth colour packs. I love the ‘over one eye’ sexiness of it. It’s total bombshell hair and worked perfectly with the Pixicat dress from this month’s round of C88. I kept the accessories simple and used my favourite Curves pack from GingerFish Poses to really show off the look.
