No matter how old you are now. You are never too young or too old for success or going after what you want. Like I said before in another post, I am 57 years and a beginner blogger and photographer as well. I am learning everything and I do everything by myself. I take my own pictures, I edited them, and day by day I find another way to get better for me, of course! I am not a professional in photography, I am a fashion designer and artist and I have been work 32 years in the fashion business, so I am proud of me. Reinventing myself always! I was thinking how can I take my photos external photos as all the bloggers do. I did not try yet take external photos because it’s to much work from now, and I do not have anyone who can go with me to the streets and photograph me in my time, for this reason, all my photoshoot I did in my bedroom aka home photo studio. So I thought about trying to use a chroma key background and then remove the background from the photos and put another landscape behind AND I DID! I headed to a Goodwill near my house looking for a green bed sheet and I found it! I came back to my house so happy and excited to put the green bed sheet as a background and start a photo session.
It will work? I hope so! It was very difficult to control the lights in front of me and behind. The green color was reflected on my skin…by in the end I think it was good for the first experience.
I have to admit that the cut was not very good, especially in my hair that is always the hardest part of being cropped in photos. I remember countless times I’ve been sitting next to the photo editors watching them correct the photos for my fashion catalogs. It was funny at that time I thought I would never be able to do such a thing because it required a lot of patience and I did not have much patience at all! To do this, I find online a photo editor the name GIMP, it is very nice and free! I watched some videos on Youtube to learn how they work. But I want more! I want to put another background is my pic. How can I do that? More videos and tutorials and here it goes!
Like I said: I am learning my friends. I know it’s not perfect but for sure I will continue doing until I got better. Take a look at another pic. Now I went to Tokyo!
So, that’s it, folks. I hope you like this post. I will always share my adventures with you guys because this is a mission of my blog. Remember, age is just a number! living and learning day by day! I’m just having fun and sharing my experience! My post is not a tutorial ok? I know I need to study more and more but I could not wait to get better at chroma key so I decided to post now! Who cares?
