Friday SP: Last Minute Check

Home, Red Room

After a discussion with Scott that led to me suggesting that I take a picture of me in my industrial support bra, Scott told me that I might ought to find out what Bev and her group of girls were up to this Friday. With a PM and a promise not to tell Scott the idea, I learned that Friday's SP theme was "sexy legs and high heels". In order to participate with the girls over the pond, I felt I should take my picture on Thursday (much like the Thursday Challenge photo gets taken on Wednesday evening). So, technically I am a day early, but at least it fits with the theme and it's not like many people are going to see it anyway.

I have short legs with fat calves (as lamented by me every time I try to find knee high boots), but I thought that maybe depending on the angle I might could make them look longer. I don't think I really quite accomplished that, but this picture was the best of the group. Since this is a learning thing for me, if I were to do the shot over again, I think I would lay down a drop cloth of some sort to get rid of the carpet. I would also turn the shoe out more to see the heel better since that was part of the theme. I probably should have tried a lighting so that either the reality or the reflection was highlighted and stood out in focus. I couldn't quite get the DOF so that the boots were in focus and the legs were not. And once again, I played with that soft focus. I usually over sharpen my photos, so the soft focus thing has been fun to experiment with lately.

I'm new to this stylized type of self portraits. On the bright side, I can only get better!

Length doesn't make legs sexy. But shape does and your legs are sexy. Good shot.

Those are your Dickens boots, right? Who knew that's what you were wearing under all of that? :) Great SP, I like the dreamy quality.

This is well done, my dear. And I think you mostly succeeded in your goal as well. B&W was an excellent choice as well.
