Confession .281. Would You Believe Me If I Told You I’ve Got Flaws?

Cause i don’t know the perfect road to go down
But i know i’m trying my best
i’m trying my best to be ok
i’m trying my best, but every day it’s so hard…

Confession .281.  Would You Believe Me If I Told You That I've Got Flaws? (BVN Collab Challenge)

Oh god, i collabed!  And i hope it doesn’t look terrible!  My inspiration is always so sporadic that i’m scared to collab with other P/people that i won’t do T/them justice or their avatars or their looks or pretty much just any bit of anxiety that can stop me from doing something cool, will.  But this year i signed up for the BVN Collab Challenge and while finding these two collab buddies was a bit unconventional, we did it!

Y/you’ll recognize Nova if Y/you’ve been here awhile.  She was gracious enough to let me hijack her collab partner as well and do a group of three.  Which, let me tell Y/you, photographing 3 people is not the easiest thing in the world.  They were both super patient while i edited poseballs and tried to get everyone’s body parts out of each other, and in the end i think we got a pretty cute scene.

The other thing i want to mention…. i usually don’t buy into pre-done actions for Photoshop.  They feel… cheaty, usually because Y/you’re just hitting a button, rather than doing the editing yourself.  However, these Baking Beauty actions from The SL Spoon… i’m just in love!  The hues and stuff apply automatically to Y/your photo, but everything else is a BRUSH ON action… so what the action is doing for Y/you is setting up the layers and the settings, and then telling Y/you how to brush it on.  But Y/you’re still doing the work.  Y/you’re choosing where to place the effect, and THAT makes it still genuine to me.  i love it, and i don’t know that i’ll edit another photo without them again.

Like… for real.  Obsessed.  i’m gonna link them down in the credits i’m so obsessed, and i would encourage A/anyone looking to further the realism in T/their photos to pick them up and mess around with them.  Y/you won’t regret it!

Feel free to visit Heather’s Blog and Nova’s Flickr for their own credits when they get their versions of the photo done!
