I have been really busy lately. For the most part, it is because of work. Unfortunately, I haven’t found time to get back to my “normal” routine (which includes training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and going to the gym). However, I don’t lose heart. And not only I am going to be on the mat and on the gym floor really soon again, I am already planning further.
On my first post of 2012, I already mentioned that I wanted to do some new things. The kick-off was my entrance to a photo contest (and if you haven’t voted yet, remember that you have until February 5th to do so). I also mapped this blog on a personalized domain (https://debbierodrigues.com/) and had a haircut.
Today, I came across an old blog entry I posted back in 2007 that reflects a lot of my spirit now. It reinforced the fact that I am not having just an impulse of excitement, that is who I am.
I hope to have some more news for everybody soon. And in the meantime, I continue doing my best to improve my photography skills.
Thanks for stopping by.
In order to bring some fresh air to my pictures of Yukino-chan, I decided to play a little with Lightroom’s filters. It also added some mystery to the her new look, so it was double fun.
Recently, I ordered an outfit from Nine9Style for her. It looks really nice, including the boots. So far, I have not had the best luck with the shoes I got for Yukino. This pair made me really happy.
Together with the outfit, they sent a small magazine with some of their outfits. It looks really nice and I could not leave it without a photo shoot.
The wig looks so sweet on her. Pink is one of my favorite colors and it is exciting to see how nice Yukino looks in it. (^_^*)
Thanks for reading!
After I felt I was getting somewhere with my pictures, I decided to venture into the worlds of post processing. I knew it was not going to be easy, but why not?
It felt like a natural continuation and a good thing to have both skills moving forward together instead of waiting for some miracle to happen.
Well, I knew it was going to be difficult, but I was not expecting it to be THAT hard.
I am not blaming the software. I am pretty sure that a lot can be done with Corel Paint Shop Pro X2, but for obvious reasons, one needs to know how to get the best out it. In my case right now, I don’t.
In the meantime, I keep on shooting, trying, sometimes getting good results, failing miserably others… And I hope you can bare with me in this long learning process.
Thanks for stopping by. And if you think of anything that might helps us out, let Yukino and I know it, please.
