This is this.

Just a quick update on some photography. It's been a stressful few weeks.

Here are two self-portraits of me. I have to take them for an assignment, so there's many more to come. I'm trying out different styles.

For a school assignment we had to recreate a magazine ad and make it look as identical as we could. My ad is on the right. I didn't even know how to properly light any of these things (the model or lipstick) because they only taught us really simple things. I had to rely on photoshop to make everything look similar. It really took me hours. If you don't believe me, have a look at the original.

Here I made a ice-grape-cone. I was trying to photograph a different idea but it wasn't working, so I made this instead, to make up for my time.

I also really like your self-portraits, the one on the right, with the red and blue, is my fave.

Just found your blog and I am LUHVVING it.

The work you did on the ad was amazing ( I looked at the original).

I second the fact that photoshop can be SO intimidating. But it looks like you are showing it who's boss.

I'm excited to follow!
