Combat Salacious Removal

Saturday night and I was feelin’ alright. But honestly, my second favorite part of any night out? That precise moment when my head hits the pillow and I shut my eyes. My favorite part of any night out, is of course, getting ready!

Looking at this outfit now, I think it would have looked better with a pair of brogues or something that reached below my ankle. Guess I need to go buy some brogue now, huh?


I bought my first dslr (Nikon D60) during the summer and I’ve really been getting into photography the past few months. Which has been fun, but also incredibly, incredibly frustrating. I am not a good photographer. I have no eye for composition, I have trouble understanding lighting, and I am not that creative.  And I find myself surrounded by friends and families who have a real natural ability.  Ugh.  It’s so frustrating. But I’m going to keep trying. Things came so easy to me as a child and teenager, that I am just now learning to appreciate the feeling of succeeding after trying and trying.

Lovely readers, do you have any general tips for a burgeoning photographer? Or book recommendations?

    I’d say just check out work from photographers you’re into and continue to photograph subjects you’re interested in. Play with exposure, focus, and lighting. I have trouble understanding lighting too, so I usually just go with what feels right and what I think looks good. It’s all about how you feel about the finished product.
