Ugh thanks to Issa’s horrible video of me shortly after I had woken up for the mask shoot, I feel like I have to redeem myself and show a picture of what I actually look like (somewhat) normally. Which I usually don’t do, because, you know, I like to keep the focus on the fashion (or else I just hate being in photos- take your pick). Well, other than the facial fuzz which I am only growing out because I'm taking time off from work (aka VACATIONFACE). Plus, I mean, all the cute fashion bloggers in Houston already have TEH BOIFLENDINGS and this makes me saddings as I have no incentive to show face.
So I am usually not a fan of hoodies, but the BigBro got me and the LilBro these awesome hoodies for Christmas and I will make an exception for that. Because these babies fully zip up:
This also leads me to another question, which is a problem I have encountered since guest posting on WWT and which lately more than a few of my friends have pointed out. How the heck do people pose? I’ve got my like one or two generic mannequin poses, but then after that, it feels like I should be doing more.
I think girls have more variety (AGAIN, ugh, I hate fashion) when it comes to poses. I mean they can pose against a wall and look seductive or they have more hair to play with and look down, etc etc. Guys, I don’t know man. What do we have? Both hands in pockets. One hand in pocket. Other hand in pocket. Hands behind back. Did I cover it all? I think so.
See... and then I'm out of ideas. Here are some other poses I thought might work out in future posts:
The kinda douchebag-pointing-at-the-camera pose. Well, combined with jumping. There are never enough jumping shots in the fashion world.
Anyway, maybe I am making this out harder than it actually is, but, what can I say. I'm more comfortable behind the camera than in front of one.
