Sometimes the pictures I end up taking are just kinda…goofy. Like this one, where I was overcorrecting for my usual terrible posture and ended up sort of leeeaaaaning back.
I go back and forth on whether to include (unintentionally) goofy pictures–sometimes I think they distract from the outfit. Did you come here to see the clothes I wear, or did you come here to see me making weird faces? (Don’t answer that.)
Okay, and sometimes I just want to avoid posting a wonky expression or unflattering shot on the blog. I get embarrassed!
But then, sometimes wonky shots are all I get, especially these days. Having a broken wireless trigger -> running back-and-forth from camera to posing spot -> fewer pictures on a hot and sweaty afternoon. Editing six pictures rather than twenty-six can mean making some sacrifices, quality-wise.
And really, showing mistakes and goofs can be as important as showing a carefully-curated selection of pictures of one’s “best self,” whoever that might be. Right?
ETA: I just came across this, which I think only proves my point.
