Reader’s Choice!

So as usual, I’ve got a stockpile of drafts I’ve started, and can’t decide what to finish next.  So here are a few topics I’ve got a little bit on already, with a brief description of what each topic is about.  Take a gander…

  • Blogging: Getting Started
    In this entry, I talk about how to get started blogging, give tips for writing, and talk about some good and bad reasons to start a blog.
  • Hiring An Experienced Model: Why It’s Worth It
    This one’s pretty self-explanatory, but I talk about why, sometimes, hiring an experienced model is a better idea than going with a newb.  I won’t be discussing agency models here.
  • Point Your Toes When You Pose
    Another one that doesn’t need much introduction, but simply talks about (and shows, with photos) why it’s important for a model to be body-aware and make sure she’s pointing her toes when working the camera.
  • Posing vs. Being Posed
    Here I talk about my thoughts on a model posing on her own, versus being micromanaged by the photographer.  Is there a ‘happy place’ somewhere in the middle?  Perhaps 😉
  • Pre-Shoot Meetings
    This is something people seem to either be for, or against, and often comes up in the discussion regarding whether one is a professional or not.  In this entry, you’ll get my take on the pre-shoot meeting, when I feel it’s appropriate, when it’s a waste of time, and why it shouldn’t replace checking references.
  • Stealing vs. Inspiration
    This entry is loosely inspired by the recent Robert Granito artwork thefts (Google it).  I’ll talk about the differences (in my opinion) between outright stealing a shot (really, copying it) and using elements of a shot for inspiration.
  • Tips for Underwater Modeling
    Pretty self-explanatory, but I’ll give some tips for modeling for an underwater shoot.  I’ve only done two, but learned a lot on both shoots.  Mostly, I’ll post things I hadn’t thought of before shooting underwater, as well as some safety tips.
  • Why Public Blacklists Are Bad
    In this blog, I’ll talk about why public blacklists raise red flags about the person with the list, instead of the person on the list.

So now that you’ve seen what I’ve been up to “behind the scenes”, if you could, take a minute to vote on your favorite in the poll below.  I’d much appreciate hearing what you’d like to read about next!

Snip Snip?

I’m thinking maybe of cutting my hair short again. For me, it’s so much more versatile.  Not to mention that my hair’s so straight and fine, that once it gets past where it’s at now, there’s not much it will allow me to do to it, resulting in a ponytail or messy bun 6 days out of 7.

There were 2 cuts I had, that I really liked.  The first (L) is super short, and the second (R) has more length on top and in the front.  Observe:

I suppose right now my only options are to cut it like it was in the L shot, or stop getting my bangs trimmed and then cut it like it was in the R.  Hubs has let me know that he likes it shorter better than with bangs (currently, my hair’s pretty much the same as it is in my banner above).

Color of course, would likely stay the same as it is right now, because I dig this color.

What do you think I should do? VOTE!

What’s Next? Reader’s Choice!

Alright readers, I’ve got a bit of writer’s block and can’t decide what to blog about next… so it’s your choice! 🙂  The topics below are either drafts I’ve started, or things I’ve made note of that I want to blog about.  I’ll write about each one in the order in which you guys choose (interspersed, of course, with my Get the Look and Everyday Style blogs).

So what are you waiting for?  Start voting already! 😉

On a completely unrelated note: Today’s my half-birthday!
