During the month of May I’m doing the NaBloPoMo challenge–blogging every day of the month on the theme of photos.
Today’s prompt: Do you think you smile more honestly when you’re taking a selfie or when someone else is photographing you?
I probably smile more genuinely when someone else is taking a picture of me, because that means I’m somewhere having a good time. Selfies can be very posed and forced to make them look good–not that my smile isn’t genuine, but it’s put on for the camera! I love a good candid photograph of someone smiling or laughing. I’m always taken by surprise when I see a picture like that of myself. Wow, I was having so much fun!
Focus in a picture is like focus in life: if it’s sharp enough, the result can be breathtaking. I have a big focus in my life, making a career for myself as a writer. It’s a driving force. Sometimes it’s hard to focus because there’s too many distractions around you. I’m learning to blur out the distractions every day.
