Through The Violet Spectrum

By In Diary

It’s been a month or so since my last photo post. I’ve been a little bored with the whole photography thing. I tried for a while posting like a fashion blogger, until I realized that wasn’t what I wanted to do. I love fashion, I love talking about it with my friends, but writing about it or planning photos around it just doesn’t excite me.

Honestly, I really just like taking cool and interesting photos…or at least I try my best to. With my own self photography, it’s about chronicling a moment and preserving it. Beyond that, I don’t feel any need to explain further why I like taking self-portraits. I just do. (; [more below…]

These photos came about the other night because I was feeling bored and I was in the mood. I didn’t really go out of my way to change or anything. I just grabbed my camera and started snapping. I think more and more I will do this, but I want to adventure out of my bedroom. While these start off with the whole outfit of the day look, I eventually just tried some different poses and positions that I thought was more interesting.

I also decided to experiment with the colors of these photos. I wanted to do something cool in violet. I tried with practical lighting at first, which did not work as I hoped. I do dig this post processing effect though. I’ll have to experiment more in the future.
