I take a lot of pictures. A looooot of pictures. For my blog, my Instagram, my home, and my family. If you’ve read my tips on taking quality photos, this is simply par for the course. The more pictures to choose from, the better!
However, not every picture makes the cut. Some might not turn out good, others I might not like, or it might just be that my post has too many images and I’m trying to cut down on assets. Whatever the reason, I have plenty of photos that never get published.
I was cleaning out a year’s worth of images on my camera this weekend, and looking through them was a little surreal. So much can happen in a year, and so many shots held good memories. Just for fun, I decided to post a few outtakes of pictures that I never shared here. I’ll probably post outtakes every now and then, as I have a lot of fail shots too!
I try to keep outfit pictures down to two or three images only, so these shots had to go. I think I didn’t like the first picture because my ponytail looks like a little stub, but now I don’t think it’s that bad? Fun fact: I actually lost my balance in these shots and fell against the wall, which resulted in the pictures that were ultimately chosen for my OOTD post!
Why do I look mad at my ramen? I must’ve been hangry. This shot didn’t work out well because it was too dark (the light was behind me), but otherwise I like it. Gosh, I MISS THAT HAIR. It’s hard for me to look at pictures from spring last year because the magenta bob leaves me wistful. But I also like my brown hair now. Why am I never content?
Here’s another shot that I actually liked, but I ultimately chose a more impressive picture for my Vegas vacation post last year.
I love this picture too! Not sure why I passed on it, maybe because it looks like a tree is growing out of my head? But you know, that would be cool. I don’t have to cook for myself, I can just sit out in the sun and make my own energy source. Photosynthesis, noobs!
I asked Mike to help me take a few pics of the couples scarf I stitched for Valentine’s Day a few months ago, and it took us forever to get a decent shot because he wouldn’t stop goofing around. He’s a huge dork who always makes me laugh.
That’s it for my blog outtakes! Do you have a process in choosing blog photos? Got a fun shot to share? Let us know below.
