BLOOPERS: Outtakes from 2013

The other day I posted a bit of blooper/outtake from an outfit post I did back in 2013. That made me think of all the other outtakes of the year. I thought it would be a good idea to share them on the blog, because I'm in the mood for nostalgia and kind of want to let you take a peek of my personality a bit more when the photos are not filtered. So let me walk you through the various types of blooper photos that I have from 2013—which is the first year I used DSLR for the blog—and, if you like it, we can move on to 2014 and so on. First photo above must've been taken by Firu when I was still talking—and most likely complaining—to him.

Back in 2013 I took most of my photos alone. And, although I've always felt most comfortable in front of the camera on my own, it still feels quite awkward and weird to be taking photos of yourself. This is when I make faces to loosen myself up a little bit and maybe get an actual photo with a personality—which, for me, is highly important. Sometimes, though, I make faces unintentionally because someone was passing by out of frame and I was feeling extremely strange and self-conscious. That must've been what happened in the bottom left photo there.

The faces that happen in between shots/poses
Problem with blogging with glasses: fixing them up when the camera goes off
Sometimes strange and funny faces or poses happen when I'm transitioning from one pose to another, from one expression to another. This is the one that happens the most—be it alone or with someone else. Sometimes I make the ugliest or most awkward faces that the internet should never have to see—but here they are! Sometimes I'm just readjusting myself or ready to walk out of frame to start over. Sometimes, though, my body seems to bend in a strange way that it looks almost broken, like that bottom right photo there. What is up with those feet? They look like they're not supposed to bend that way.

Can anyone just tell me what the hell is going on with my hair here?
My diva face comes out every now and then when Firu refuses to take the photos seriously
Most of the time, though, I'm too focused in setting up the camera that I forget about all the other aspects/elements I need to prepare as well, like taking off the coat or adjusting my hair or, you know,.....climbing up a tree. Funny thing is, more than once the camera stops taking pictures before I'm actually presentable for the blog, so I have to start the timer over again. Way to go, me! In the case when someone takes my photos, they either don't know when to stop or simply refuse to stop, catching me off guard with these weird poses and faces. In Firu's case, he's so good at capturing my diva face because I'm pissed he wouldn't take the outfit photos seriously. Now you know how ugly I look when I'm in a mood.

Aside from these, most of the photos that didn't make it to the blog were just out of focus or I was out of frame or both—it happens at least 80% of the time. I selected these few that may be of interest to you—the rest looks boring—so I hope you'll enjoy these and know that taking photos for the blog isn't always perfect and it doesn't have to be. Thank you for reading!
