Would you believe I was wearing zero makeup in the original shot, but thanks to the power of Photoshop, I still managed to end up looking somewhat presentable. Hooray for digital makeup! My eyeshadow, eyeliner, foundation and lipstick were all added during post processing. A lot of people consider editing photos a chore, but it’s actually something I enjoy a lot. In fact, oftentimes I have to remind myself not to go overboard. They have been times where I enjoyed editing so much that I managed to Photoshop my face to the point that it doesn’t even look like me anymore (eek).
I couldn’t think of a title for this image, so I resorted to Googling random quotes. This one stuck with me because it suits my current situation perfectly. I’m on the verge of making some big changes in my life, and it’s scares me. I’m still at that point where I can easily back out and remain where I am, but that’s exactly what I want to avoid. I have always been scared of change and the unfamiliar, but it’s time I stop hiding and explore what life has to offer. Of course, the first step is always the hardest, so I’ve been praying everyday for the strength to push through and follow my dreams.
