Blogger's Notes
     I've had an idea for something like this in my head for a while. I wanted to do something inspired by The Hunger Games or Divergent, but I felt like that might be asking for way too much too soon. I decided to stick to a simple color theme for now. I chose purple since I see posts everywhere about how it brings out green eyes.

     My girlfriend and I shot this at sunset. It might have blown out some of the pictures I ended up choosing, but oh well. I love all of these. When I saw how the pictures turned out without the blinds being raised, I really liked the graphic nature it added. It also made it possible for me to see/not be blinded completely by the setting sun.

     As for purple eyebrows being wearable, I had blue eyebrows the other day. I was reading an article where the writer apparently wore green eyebrows through spring and summer. Keeping everything else fairly neutral is the key to wear-ability. 


  1. Awesome look!


  2. What a bold look, it's fun to experiment and I love the lighting in this shoot!
