xD Thank you for this Ask. This one is going to be hilarious.
I’ve taken almost 3000 pictures for this blog, mostly of myself in various adult baby-ish poses and situations. But in reality I almost never take selfies. I play around with Snapchat on my phone, sometimes, but I’m not the sort of person who would save those kinds of selfies. It’s not that I lack self-confidence for this; it’s that I don’t see a reason to take selfies. I don’t know anyone who I’d send those selfies to ^^;;
I do love taking pictures of people. But the joy of taking pictures, for me, is to showcase a person in a way they don’t normally see themselves. Taking a photo and displaying it in the way I want is a form of art, right? A photo, for me, isn’t about displaying what reality is like. With a phone, the pictures look very bland to me, exactly how my own eyes see it. With a big camera, I can set it to save RAW files, and edit those raw files on my laptop later. Also, with a big camera I can use a flash, choose a big aperture to play with the background, change the iso, and I don’t have to worry about the camera “deciding” on the wrong settings like the white balance. I use Capture One to edit my raw files, and I can recommend everyone to look into how to save photos in raw to be able to edit them manually. Because it gives you a lot more room to ‘rescue’ a photo which you thought had failed into something usable, but also to play around with pictures to make them look more artsy.
