Newcomers to the (Ef)Face: Check These Out!

Sofa, So Good.

Yes, that punny title for this post was COMPLETELY necessary.

My dear readers, I have discovered a new means by which to take photos: piling up a basket, a decorative vase, and a book and then placing my camera (albeit precariously) on top of all that lot and setting a ten-second timer.  That allows me to take photos of me laying and sitting on the couch.  By adding another book and shifting the camera from there, I can get me standing next to the couch.  YAY for ingenuity..? 

PLEASE let me know what you think of these shots: I was quite pleased with the results of my little photographic experiment.

opening things up with my favorite shot
Soooo church ended up--SURPRISE--being held outdoors today so they can do some remodelling.  You should have seen me teetering around on the grass in these shoes.  I spent the whole sermon furiously fanning myself with the bulletin, because the dress is black and a poly-blend that doesn't breathe at ALL.  Classy.


Getting "so SEXUAL," as Jenna Marbles would say...



Then there were a few shots that required more editing than simply being cropped (as all the above were).  The following photos were either that whole model-y "I have NO idea what she's doing, but I guess it makes the clothes look pretty cool" thing (you know that you've paged through magazines and thought that), or just...wanted some added filtering and arty stuff.


Really, though...what WAS I doing? 
Gimme a break: I only had ten seconds every time to press the button, run back to the couch, and get in some sort of pose.  Every once in awhile, I'd remember to set my face.  Not this time, though (hence my cropping it out of the frame).



My purse demanded some limelight.  It was unfortunately stuck in a dark spot for most of these photos.
Anyway, this was a fun shoot on a hot Sunday afternoon.  I did all of this in about 20 harried minutes; I wanted to be finished before my husband got home: he would have laughed at me something fierce for the bizarreness of my setup and coquettish posing.

Anyway, farewell my loves, until next time...

(...which should be Monday!  I've got some photos my friend, Emilee took of me and herself from a concert.  We look amazing, if I do say so, myself!  :)  Be excited!!!)
