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…
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!
