Whereas diamonds are a girl's best friend, photos are a crossdresser's best friend.
Old joke: How many crossdressers does it take to change a lightbulb?
Three: one to climb the ladder to change the lightbulb, one to hold the ladder, and one to take photos of the event.
Before digital cameras, I took photos... usually Polaroids to avoid having them processed and handled by strangers. But Polaroid film was expensive, so I did not do as much photo-documenting of my early crossdressing life as I do today now that I have an endless supply of free "film" in my digital camera.
Dunno about you, but one reason I take a lot of photos is that maybe one in five is any good. The other four out of five are not good for one reason or another.
Readers Digest has an article online that may improve my one to five success ratio. Titled "10 Ways to Look Good in Photos," the brief article is must-reading for any "girl" who expects to be on the business end of a camera.
