Not a complete waste of makeup



Self portrait at home after photographing the troupe I dance with - including myself. This is quite a hard ask, particularly since I still don't have any lights and had to rely on the on-camera flash. It's also exhausting trying to be a dancer and a photographer at the same time while trying to squish down various body image issues - my own and others. My focus was all over the place. Still - I did get at least one decent shot - er - not including this one. I shall look at the rest tomorrow.

Shells, pieces of paper, clouds and insects are so much more calming.

Pretty!

At least you didn't spend the entire time looking in the mirror *ahem*

I was quite disappointed we didn't get photos of just us Belly Cats, but I didn't want to say anything at the time.

Thanks :)

Good point actually - I wish you'd mentioned it just quietly to me at the time and I would have organised it, but I was actually a bit overwhelmed. Portraiture still freaks me out a little, and the group does tend get a bit hyperactive when the sequins and feathers come out.
