The coolest things about New York City is that you can just walk around the block and end up being somewhere you planned on going to see. Kyle and I were planning to see the Flat Iron building after we went back to our hotel to change and such and we just happened to walk passed the Flat Iron on the way back and I thought it’s the coolest thing ever. We had no idea we were near it so it was neat to stumble upon it. Of course we had to model in front of it. It’s taken a while to get comfortable in front of the camera again. When I was little, I was never camera shy and jumped all around when my photo was being taken, even in high school, when people were taking my picture, I was all for it. It’s not that I’m super shy about having my picture taken, it’s the “modeling poses” I do that make me embarrassed because I feel silly sometimes! I’ve gotten so comfortable with Kyle behind the camera that I don’t even notice it anymore. Even with people around, I don’t mind them looking. In a post here, my mom took my photos and I was so nervous. It was so weird having her take my pictures, but after a while, I warmed up. I guess it all just takes some getting use too props to real models though, they’ve got that stuff nailed down.
I love taking pictures though (which is a huge part on my I made a blog. To share photos with family and to look back on blog posts since I never post on facebook anymore.) I find it to be such a fun hobby as I’m no where near a professional but in my free time, it’s a blast. I really want to improve my photo skills and learn more information about how to use my camera. I’m also really interested in making my photos better. Especially with the editing. When I’m at school, I edit my photos on my iPad and I really don’t like the way they turn out most of the time. It’s more of a lazy way I edit when I don’t want to turn on my desktop ha. I feel like the photos don’t look as good as they could be. So if anyone has any recommendations of photo editing software or apps or anything, please let me know! I’m always open to improvements!
So I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving. I’m so ready for Christmas now I can’t take it! I’m definitely feeling the Christmas spirit this year. I woke up thanksgiving day listening to Christmas music. I can’t help it. In the car, Christmas music is constantly playing. Im turning into that person now haha! Let me know how your thanksgiving was, I’m not even bummed about eating all of the leftovers. Thanksgiving food is my favorite!! Have a great Monday & thanks for reading!
