Posing? (no training)

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday!

I have lots of training (years and years) in my professional job. I’m a therapist and went to graduate school while also doing separate trainings each year since graduation to stay current with treatment best practices.

By comparison, I haven’t really had any formal training in my quest to be a blogger and fashion instagrammer (is that a word?) LOL….I’ve read other blogs and follow women on Instagram and that’s how I get an “idea” of what to do but I wouldn’t say I’m licensed 🙂

I’m learning how to “strike a pose” (seriously that reminds me of a Madonna song) with pictures I take of my clothes I model for my IG and here on the blog but I don’t really “know” what I’m doing LOL! I am getting a feel for what light I need for a good picture and noticing backgrounds and what looks good, but have no training. Here are several pictures of this morning’s outing (before I go to paid work).

First I have to think: where on the way to work can I stop to take a picture, where is the lighting good (shady but bright? summer weather is great but cloudy days make great pictures), where is a good background that is different, what background looks good with my clothes…yada yada yada….it’s ridiculous what is popping up in my head but this is my process. Sometimes I just randomly take pictures and don’t care as much as I think other people do but that’s whatever. I try not to judge myself 🙂

Enjoy my randomly taken pictures with one of my favorite pants and shirt-both from JCPenney and my favorite bag from Target (affordable fashion both).
