My DIY B-Pics 8/18-8/19/2011

Had some help Friday by one of my bridesmaids, thank God too because I did another session the next day using the timer and by the time I got done I had sweat rolling off me!! Obviously I still need to work a lot harder on my abs, but compared to November with an extra 40 pounds I'm happy enough with how I look now. Well I'm happy enough that if I can still find a bikini I'm buying it for our honeymoon, and for sure next summer I'll be wearing one!!! Please be brutally honest about what you think, I don't need compliments, but are they good enough to do up as a present? I have these set to friends only so just send a request! :) Oh and pleeeeease don't post these anywere of course! ;)

Thanks June, I just hope he doesn't think it's silly.....by the way the top one in red my girlfriend took, but the rest were done with a timer...LOL I do intend on doing more of them in b&w, I think that adds something to them too.

Thanks mlunavital, if I could have set the timer for longer than 10 seconds I think they would have turned out better....the key I think is cropping, and black and whites are really great for these types and I plan on doing some with lots of contrast and funky hues to make up for the fact that a lot of the pictures I took were out of focus, but would have been great if they weren't blurry....oh well, it is the thought that counts anyway!! LOL Oh and another thing, before I did these I went through as many boudoir pics as I could then printed out the ones I liked the best, that way when I started doing them I wasn't at a loss I had something to look at and then I just decided what outfit I had that I thought would go best with the pose! I found some great ones out there too!!

Thanks Nubian, hope you're right, I just keep thinking he'll think it's silly. You feel silly trying to pose and be "sexy", my daughter in law offered and she's a GREAT photographer, but that would have felt weirder than my girlfriends helping, but her pictures would have been magazine worthy! Just got the notice from Shutterfly that my 8 by 8 inch hardbound book with 20 pages of pictures is out of production and on it's way......thankfully it should get here by the 31st with 3 days to spare!! If you haven't looked in to doing one of these, you should it's really inexpensive ( 52.98 and that's with 2 day shipping) I also got to pick the front and back covers for it, they'll do it for you or let you totally do your own thing! Plus if you join you get 50 4 by 6 inch prints for free, I plan on using those to print some of the wedding pictures to give to peeps. The book thing also makes a good guest book if you use your E-Pics for it. I opted for a picture of two trees interwined for my guest book/picture I bought some colored prepunched leaves for guests to sign, then with the already applied mini glue dot they can stick the leaf to the glass of the picture, then later I can peel them off the glass and place them on the picture! Oh and the picture was actually a pencil drawing with only a little bit of color on the few leaves left on the tree, I had it made into a 18 by 24 inch print on canvas.....the canvas makes it look way more expensive than the twenty it cost to have it printed. Then throw in another 34 dollars for the frame w/glass plus having a matte cut for it, and the 18 dollars I spent on 100 precut leaves for the guests to sign, and I have invested almost 70 dollars into it, but after I place the leaves where I want them, I'll have a beautiful picture to hang on my living room wall!!! Oh and I took the picture into a photo editing program and added a heart carved into the trunks of the trees with our initials in it, and beside the tree towards the bottom of the picture I've put our names and the wedding date under them! You can also do the same thing only instead of using leaves for the guest to sign, you used different colored ink stamp pads for guest to put their thumbprint on the canvas and then they sign under it....Oh well kind of off subject guess I should be in the DIY discussions LOLOL

They turned out really well.  


I'm really thinking of doing these for FI, but I will be paying someone.  No way am I brave enough or talented enough to do them myself.


Your FI is going to love them!

Cuteboy,


See I wasn't brave enough to go to someone strange to do mine, it was uncomfortable enough having my bridesmaid do them for me......of course it would be easier getting poses and focus right with a professional. The hardest part for me was what poses to do, then the night before I decided to REALLY look for  more b-pics to get ideas and decided to print them to take with me, so that way I had some direction...it would have been a disaster without the pictures!! Talent had nothing to do with it, there were lots of pictures that didn't turn out focus wise both days that I did them. So moral of the story is if you have your BM take them make sure you fully explain your camera to her and better yet view them on a computer to better tell if they are out of focus!
