Another third of me

I shared the post – A third of me – for the first time in March 2018, after one of my first self-photography sessions.

The image I shared back then is really badly edited. I cringed when I saw it! Back then I shared how I was busy with a photography course, and have learned one of the important rules of photography: the rule of thirds. This is how I came to share a third of me.

The badly edited image from 2018

In the past years I have not only developed my photography skills, but have also acquired Lightroom. I watched a lot of online videos to teach me the things I need to know to edit my images. Scrolling through images I wanted to share again, I saw the one above and realized: I can do better!

I searched for the original image, and set out to edit it in Lightroom. In the image above I left the bed in, and edited part of the foot-end of the bed out of the image. Look closely and you will see what I mean. And then of course I edited the background to be black, but see how it turned out?

This time I chose to edit out everything, except myself, and of course change the image to monochrome.

This one is much better, don’t you agree?

  2. This is gorgeous, I love the contours of your body against the plain background! I am definitely going to be keeping the rule of thirds in mind from now on too.

  3. I love the image too, very sensual and tantalising. Love that body suit. I reckon you’ve really nailed it…
    I think I need to do a course too, if only to understand what my photographer is saying!!!

  4. This is so pretty – I imagine your hands up high, lifting your hair and you’re laughing, just out of the shot.
