If you've had your blog for a while, you must have realized that pictures account for a great part of it. I don't want to sound shallow, but the truth is that I don't usually read posts that are super long and have few or no pictures at all. That's why, in my opinion, it is important to take some considerations into account when taking photos for your blog. Let's start with a list of what you shouldn't do.
1.- Don't have photo shoots on windy days or make sure you tie your hair when taking pictures outdoors.
2.- Don't be photographed holding food proudly (esp. carbohydrates) if you're not happy about your weight gain. I mean, come on! You're practically telling the world you have no self control. (I totally have no self control)
3.- Don't show ugly tan marks. Or better yet, don't be a dork like me when you go to the beach and sunbathe barefoot.
4.- Don't forget to clean your house thoroughly if you plan to take photos there. Also check what's under your furniture and if you find something, hide it very well.
Look at that dirty mirror! Dimitri doesn't even want to look at it, haha!
1.- Cover your face if you don't feel like putting on make-up; books, magazines, bags (see the top right pic in this blog), anything can work! I say grab a book as a first choice; it'll help you look intellectual.
2.- Hide behind doors if you don't want to show how fat you've gotten.
3.- Can't afford to stay up-to-date with the latest fashion trends? No biggie! You can always revamp what's already in your wardrobe. No money to buy a pair of the so-called boyfriend jeans, for instance? Do like me and wear a pair of husband jeans ... I matched it with a husband shirt.
4.- Are you jealous of the top fashion bloggers who get freebies from famous brands? They always get to wear whatever is going to be hot that season, I know ... You may not have that advantage, but that's all right; choose to be a trendsetter instead of wearing what you're told! ;p I'm planning to impose wearing gloves in summer; I think it might catch on.
The important thing is to look like you really own it; it's all in the attitude, guys. Next thing you know, everybody will following the trend that you imposed ;).
5.- Don't want to show your love handles? Cover your sides with a big present or if possible, someone who's bigger than you.
Hope you're all getting ready to have a great weekend! ;D
