In Bloom

I had a little self portrait therapy session late this afternoon. I was feeling restless and I really wanted to take some photos, but it was so cold outside today and I didn't want to go out in that weather. buuuuuut, I noticed the lovely afternoon sunlight streaming in from my window, so I decided to take some photos in my bedroom.  It was fun experimenting with my manual focus lens, which I've not used in awhile, especially on myself.  I also really like how soft these photos look.  I put a scarf over my lens to achieve that effect.  It was nice taking simple close up portraits of myself.  I usually don't take up close photos of myself, so this was definitely a little out of my comfort zone and it took a lot of experimenting, but i'm very happy about how they turned out. 

I really want to start taking more fashion photography instead of conceptual photography.  Conceptual photography will always be my first love, but I've been really into fashion photography lately.  I'll definitely still take some conceptual photos now and again, but it just won't be my main focus as it has been in the past.  I think it'll be fun trying something new!!!!
