Class every Wednesday never fails to amaze me! This week, we talked about styling, casting, and posing. I must say that since I started taking classes at MBMA, I always find myself asking “How can I put a little of Sungyoung in this outfit?” I used to think that I have a good grasp of a style that I could call my own but I was wrong. It turns out that I still have a lot to discover about myself and the only way I can do that is by letting go of my fears, stepping outside of my comfortable zone, and experimenting.
We were so lucky to have Morgane Batista talk about posing. She imparted the knowledge she gained from creating poses and gave us tips and guidelines. While she was giving the lesson, all the posing mistakes I committed suddenly came to mind especially this most recent one. What was I thinking? I was too careless. From now on, I am pretty sure that I will be scrutinizing every inch of my avatar before snapping that photo.
“Do I look right?” “Are my prims placed perfectly?” “Do the colors match?” “Am I over-accessorizing?” “What element is missing?” “What pose should I use?” – these are just some of the questions that I know I will be asking myself.
Everything I learn at MBMA are not only applicable in modeling but blogging as well. Browsing through my flickr feed, I realized that I really didn’t give much effort. Most of them are put together in a rush just to be able to post a new entry. I feel the need to apologize to all the content creators whose items I butchered with my lazy styling. 미안 해요. I’m sorry.
…with all that in mind, I will try to do better. 아자아자 화이팅!
