I must apologise for having been away from blogging for a while. My absence was unplanned but I haven’t felt very well and I just didn’t have the concentration to log in to SL, take and process photos and then put them together to publish. I may be blogging a bit less often for a while, but I will do my best not to let so much time go by between posts. I could have just put up any old thing to be more timely, but if I give less than my best effort I feel I am letting you, my readers, down. I never want to do that so I beg your patience as I work my way back.
I must say that part of my absence was due to a lack of inspiration. How many pretty dresses or sexy jeans can you blog before they all seem to run together? I am getting more excited about landscape photography but for me it takes much more concentration than fashion or portrait photography and just the thought of it made my head pound. I needed something to spark my interest and ignite my passion again.
It really was a simple concept that did it. Rika Oyen of Argrace has created two new hairstyles for photography, complete with poses. In both, the hair is free-falling away the body. I am showing you Saki today, which is styled so that your hair swings as you tilt your head back. The five poses that come with the hair in both pose ball and HUD form are perfectly created to suit this hairstyle. However, I am sure this hair will come in handy for other poses with a similar head-tilt. I tend to shy away from high-fashion poses because it just doesn’t look natural to me to have my head leaning back and my hair perfectly molded around my shoulders. Perhaps these new styles from Argrace will allow me to channel my inner Cao and be more adventurous with my photography 😉
I realise this is not the first time hair has been designed with movement and physics in mind. I’m also sure this isn’t the first time that styles have been teamed with poses. But this is the first time this concept has inspired me to invest in it and sparked my creative juices enough to put me back in motion. I felt a little rusty both photographing and processing these photos, but it’s a start 🙂
Thank you for your patience. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to a bright New Year. You’ll see me again before the ball drops and the clock strikes midnight.
