Unedited

No edit_005

My pictures will be a bit different today has Harlow Heslop has issued the challenged to post unedited pictures for our blogs. I like the idea as it allowed me to rethink my way of taking pictures.

With time, I have developped a windlight settings and some photoshop editions which allow me to enhance my picture while keeping the colors natural and giving more depth effect. For this set of pictures, I have created a new windlight setting, and I have also framed the pictures so I don’t have to resize them. The result is a bit too blue but let’s say it is the wanted effect.

In a way, I have cheated as I have used newly released mesh items, which remove a lot of problems from the pictures. When you are going to stores like celoe, Exile and The Secret Store, you are sure to have quality products which won’t disapoint you.

I have used another trick actualy, which was not intended at first. I am taking my pictures in .png to avoid loosing details. I am also taking them using a huge resolution like 4000 x 5000 pixels. I first wanted to post the original pictures but that meant uploading 31 mega to flickr so I have decided to downsize them the way i usualy do, transforming to .jpg with a lower resolution, and hiding a lot of problematic details this way like jagged edges.

Finaly, for the skin, I am wearing pUK from Dutch Touch, the new release for the VIP group only.

As a conclusion, I would like to focus on the fact that, wether you choose to edit your pictures or not, because it is your fun to do so or not, while using quality items, a good windlight setting and having an eye for framing, you should come up with quality pictures.
