Recently I bought a couple of new outfits. So I took up the challenge of the mirror-image selfie, inspired by your post a couple of days ago.
I'm not quite ready to meet the world, but I think these are a pretty good way to evaluate how I look. I choose to see the positive.
On the positive, these are my favorite pictures ever. The black sweater dress does something very nice for me, I think, I love it! Thank you Vera Wang. And it was a clearance bargain at Kohl's, $20. I don't mind saying that the breasts are 100% me.
I don't ignore the negative, much could be improved. But looking at the photos does confirm that I'm feeling more like my natural self.
I don't claim to be a good fashion photographer, but I do have a little tip about using flash with mirrors. You need a ceiling and/or corner from which to get good diffused bounce light. And you have to get the angles right so the bounce does not come straight off of the mirror. I didn't do that great, but these were the best of about three dozen tries.
Calling all girls! My open invitation to post your favorite photo along with the story behind it and the reason it is your favorite photo still stands, so don't be shy, send me your fave foto. ― Stana
