Painters tend to do practice assignments of painting portraits and objects upside down to learn to ignore what they 'think' they see and focus on what the actually do see - not sure if there's any benefit of shooting pictures upside down. Sounds a bit like Pollocks to me. <- pun.

This is something that's been somewhere in the back of my "to-do" list and I've read many times about various benefits we get from this. It helps even if we just flip the canvas while editing! Our brains tend to "create" things that aren't there or ignore something that's a bit off, for example some weird looking shadow will be ignored if you observe the portrait in normal mode, but if you flip it upside-down your brain will notice irregularities. 

If you are using the water as a mirror it helps to switch the width and height of the snapshot's size, I think... It's been ages since I tried any mirror shots.

I see you did go shopping! :D Looking good!

I did! Thanks for the tip! I hope #hashbang supplements their offerings a bit: they had some funky things!

I have NO idea why I got the space suit, though. It was just pretty much impossible to resist.

Not sure that this new skirt from MOoH doesn't make me look a little "younger" than I'm entirely comfortable with. But the 18 year-old rattling around inside me occasionally yells loudly enough that I have to pay attention, so I bought it anyway.

The ripped top is from Gulabi. I'm not going to tell you what version of me insisted I buy that . . .

Oh, and I need a skateboard (says 15 year-old me).

   I saw that skirt, but Neph has one that looks almost exactly like it from FashionNatic so I gave it a skip. And she's got the top!

Hmmm not sure if I'm a pet or celebrity 🤔

Why not both?

Unfortunately,  or fortunately, I wasn't able to make it.

Meanwhile I am checking out this magazine. I just hope Mamma doesn't see  this.

I just hope Momma never sees this

FashionNatic makes some very nice things. I have a few -- I think I was put on to them by you, because of a pair of pants Neph had that I liked. Unfortunately, they make very little for Slink Physique bodies, or I'd buy more there.

And one of these days we should do a forum team photo at the Breakfast Club. Like a school photo or a wedding guest photo. It could be awesome!!!!!
