Photo Disapointments

Since I live in New England, and the specific town I currently am still stuck living in, I've had SO many instances of photo shoots that just went horrible. SO much work, and nothing good!

So, here's a bunch of crap... these are at least the ones that don't suck as bad as the majority... so I'll spare you the discomfort...

So, the problem I had with these photos, was the constant cloud cover. It was very warm this day. But, the clouds kept ruining everything, plus my battery couldn't decide whether it was charged or not, even tho' I'd just charged it for hours.

The entire point and theme of the photo shoot was to make some portraits of myself to use in order to get new job employment or career later this year, and to post on the various jobs websites I'm using.

I was going for minimal make-up, but a more current photo to show what I actually look like. I'm NOT young, I'm more towards middle aged now, but, I also wanted the warm spring and vitality look and feel...

Unfortunately, I had problems with lighting, shadows, glare, and the wind was so horrible, when the clouds blocked the sun, causing my eyes to sting & tear, or squint...

So, naturally, I couldn't use any of the photos... in fact, I'm still using a photo from the fall... and unhappy about it...

I don't want to look like a Goth, or a Hippy. I want to work in an office and get a retirement plan.

Not only that, but they look, dark, gloomy, creepy, ominous... not the look I was going for. I look like a vampire! Horrible!

I wanted warmth & glowy vitality, spring-ish...
A total FAIL.

So, I can't use them

I tried everything I could to get a better shot. I walked to several different neighborhoods... after a certain point, once the battery has frustrated me enough along with the clouds, you need to know when to stop, especially after trying for 3+ hours.

At the same time, I was trying to also get some shots of the fruit tree blossoms. So, depending on the light which was available at any given moment, I'd have to scramble in hopes of getting that really great shot.

So, rush, rush, rush!

Meanwhile.... I couldn't quite capture what I was seeing with my own eyes....

Some of these shots actually aren't bad.... that is... they're dark and gloomy, ominous, and Gothic. If that's what I was aiming or, I'd be delighted!

Except, I was trying to get a more warm spring vibe!


Hence my utter disappointment...

By the look of things, in my shots, it would seem to have been a gloomy day... but, it was actually bright and sunny...
I HATE when this sort of stuff happens!
