hello everyone, the flu season has officially struck (i'm sick). i drank some lemon tea which really helped and i'm feeling alot better. since i now have photoshop, i can finally process my RAW photos i took of the day i went to the aquarium. i took over 100 photos of all the sea dwellers. my friends and i have a facebook page where we took photos of ourselves modeling vintage clothing and show people how to create outfits and so far we only have around 135 likes. i don't think my friend really wants to learn how to take better photos because although i've given her tips and shown her the basic manual settings, she refuses to give it a try! she always take bad photos and she is always told by others how lovely they are, i think they're delusional.
she also refuses to edit any of her photos which i used to do but it really is a must for any photographer, amateur or professional. she took a photo of me that looked really awful because she doesn't know how to get the most out of her camera. i ended up trying to fix it but it kept getting worse.
then today i uploaded an old photo of my other friend onto the page and it came out really nice. it has a blurred background, a headshot of my friend, a nice emphasis on the colors green and red (green for the trees that were behind her and red because she has light brown/red hair). so i upload it and i check back later only to find that my friend, whom we'll call stubborn, flipped it horizontally! why the fuck would she do that? it's ridiculous and i then flipped it back to the way it was. stubborn needs to keep her hands off my photo because it was taken by me and she could've asked me instead of doing it without my permission. it got me mad because it's like my property, ya' know? i never edited nor flipped stubborn's photos to my liking.
i'm going to have a talk with her oh and one other thing, her photos get 10+ likes while this really great photo only got 2. i'm very competitive, wish i wasn't.
