“Bums are brilliant. If in doubt, photograph your arse.”
Then I sat in on Exposing40‘s session on sexy photography where she elucidated on that sentiment even further. I was inspired! At the time, anyways.
Because since I started exploring myself through the lens, I’ve still not really given my own bum much loving. There are a few reasons for this.
First, I’m still learning how to work my angles. Second, I find it easier to capture my front because, well… I’m just more familiar with it; I see it way more often in my daily life. Third, I’m a little self-conscious about the minor ongoing skin issues that result in blemishes and marks on my otherwise pretty cute cheeks.
But today, I caught a glimpse of myself from a different angle in the big mirror in my living room — I’d kicked off my sweat pants because they were restricting my dance moves while I was vacuuming so I was just in my comfy undies — and thought: “Huh. Bums ARE brilliant. Mine included.”
So I turned off the vacuum and snapped a few cheeky shots. And you know what? I found that I really like what’s going on back there today.
This one was my favourite.
Stroke these lips for all the other sinful goodness this week.
