Take a Dip into the Water.

I had another mini photoshoot when I got a chance to go home ealier yesterday :D choose another different location for this one.. Shooting outdoors really gave me whole new experience with my tiny compact camera. The settings I usually use indoors were very different. especially when yesterday was sooo cloudy.. it was dark and light at the same time.. the fair toned things turned even fairer and the dark ones went even darker..
anyhow, I'd just love to share this with you all :D I also tried editing these in different ways just to keep myself updated with all of the photoshop tricks I can find :D
tshirt (gift from a friend), mom's capris rolled up into boyfriend shorts, Club Monaco slouchy knit sweater (shown in other photos), ribbon belt from christmas gift packages, necklaces : topshop & Wishdrobe, bracelets : vintage & Forever21, shoes (gift for birthday)
i love how cropping can totally give a whole new feel to an image..
here's the original .
here are two different edits.. i love the half-colored one on the right better..
finally succeeded in making these Bokeh effects ! special thanks to Michelle for the help :D
that's me with no bangs.. haha
im kinda addicted to Bokeh effects.. hahaha. adds a whimsical feel to the photos..
last but not least, another GIF image :D that's how i got the title for this post by the way

also received this happy 101 award from Phie Emotions, Perfumed Red Shoes, Diane Freedom. and the one lovely blogger award again from Mon Mode Blog . Thanks you guys :D

The Ballerina's Closet is also giving out this wonderful stone ring ! Be sure to enter in the competition here .

Missed you lots,yes yes we have to gtalk really soon or maybe whenever we see each other online. Yeahh,I've been so busy with work and CNY for sure. heeee

Ohhh my,is this the garden behind your house?? And you live near the ocean/river? Ahhhhh,amazing! I would surely have to visit.

Stunning photo effects and I do love your shorts with those fringe shoes and your blazer is perfect to the whole look.

Bokeh effect photos are always so much fun,I need to make my own soon too.

The gif animation photo is so adorable too.Congrats on your awards as well.

Re:Ohh the velvet leotard I got has got buttons at the end so it makes toliet trips easier.
And yes,long long hours shopping is so much fun but super tiring as well.

And I love the tips you gave on the pink purple skirt I got. I was actually so lost thinking about how to pair it with. Thanks,you're the purple expert:)

Yup,I did saw your DM on twitter but I can't reply as twitter is banned at work.
I've been great more or less,we got to chat soon!!!

Sorry for the uber long comment,love you<3

febrina utami putri said...

chel klo lu diet2 gt sih gw jejelin makanan loh udah kurus gituuu. too skinny is not sexy anyway, so why bother being skeleton like? every figure has their own flaws. just like they say, nobody's perfect. there would always be something wrong about yourself if you don't start loving your figure, right? i'm so relieved i'm now very mentally healthy and i've passed those horibble moments of my life. fiuhhh
