Soft coral steel

So, this looks MUCH prettier in picture than in person.

But that may just be due to my shiny new camera!  I LOVE the quality of the images I’ve gotten thus far!  I went around taking pictures everywhere in the house to see how it handled different lighting, and it kept them all to a fairly uniform quality.  With my old camera, I have one, maybe two spots, and the rest is too shadowy/dark/distorted to get a good shot!  These may need a touch of color correction, and it has a tendency to overexpose, but it still doesn’t have the random harsh shadows and color casts that made my old images such a PAIN if i deviated from a few poses, or lightings!

YAY!  I can’t WAIT to test it on my weekend, with REAL dark lighting!

Side note-Do my eyes NORMALLY look that big, in pictures?  For some reason today I feel like i have cavernous black-hole swallow-you-whole eyes.  Maybe it’s because this camera seems to read the blue-grey less than the green that my old camera read more of….

    Coral and grey is totally under-utilized as a color pairing. It’s a crying shame and I’m glad you’re doing your part to right this sad, sad wrong.

      I’m a little afraid of coral myself! but the gray is the PERFECT subtle pairing to make it suitable for more natural wear, and more skintones. I like this softer pairing better than some of my bright corals.
