Natural: In triplicate


There are three natural aspects of this photo:
  1. It's me straight out of the shower. No make-up -- not even any moisturizer on my face yet -- and my hair not brushed. I'd had my hair towel on for a few minutes, and then took it off before taking the picture. I'm very natural here.
  2. I opened the blinds of the window to my right, and took the picture using natural light.
  3. Th only thing I have done to the photo is crop it, mostly for modesty's sake. The photo is SOOC, and therefore, completely natural.

good idea for natural. I dont think most women I know would take a picture like that so you much feel pretty secure.

Brave and Beautiful!!!!! I wish I looked that good right from the shower (think wet Siamese cat)
I like all your Natural ideas... very well thought out! Good job!

Great take! I thought of doing this, but I don't look this good, instead of Siamese cat I would say i look more wet mutt! my husband wanted a shot of me.... well you cropped it out! yeah he isn't aloud to take pictures! anyway back to your shot! the lighting is great! I love the natural window light across your face! great shot!

This is actually a very UNnatural kind of thing for me to do. I don't usually like to go out without makeup, much less take a picture without it and then plaster it all over the internet.

Then kudos for being brave! I like the natural light--it brings out the natural beauty of your face.

Very brave! I think the lighting in this photo is great. It would be a much more powerful image if you cropped the shower out of the background and filled the frame with your beautiful face.
