Re: SOS! Trade a custom bird portrait for fashion help?

Did you get the help you needed?

I have taste, both classic and artistic, and I am also exceptionally humble

Ill help you; just say the word. No need of compensation; it'd be my pleasure

Re: SOS! Trade a custom bird portrait for fashion help?

Well, aren't WE a bunch?

I'm 5'10"+ and I DID play college basketball (scholarship), and I am not only a fashion disaster but a remorseless one. My poor GQ preppie husband (5'8") inspects ME (usually with no result) before *I* leave the house. "Ummmm, you're going to wear THAT?" is a phrase he has learned not to say.

We bird portraitists are something, aren't we? Actually, we're something ELSE!

Re: SOS! Trade a custom bird portrait for fashion help?

I often wish I was a bird - no hassle with make-up, my immaculate feathery outfit always perfectly colour-coordinated, no "bad hair days", even feathers to cover up the wrinkles...
Bliss!

Re: SOS! Trade a custom bird portrait for fashion help?

So strange this thread came up again today, as I got a couple photos this afternoon so I can start networking online. I have dabbled in photography semi-professionally for years and have a relatively good grasp of poses and composition, though I dislike being in front of a camera. I did actually have 2 members help with some advice regarding makeup/clothes/hair...(thank you both) and with that, I managed to pull together a couple outfits that look put together. I also has some minimal layers put in my hair and bought makeup. I'll wear these things when I am on 'work time' and need to be around other people looking my best. Otherwise, I have been putting an effort into wearing more 'fashionable' outfits running errands and don't mind nicer clothes, but makeup everyday...not so much my thing.

My husband took photos of me in front of the concrete retaining wall across the parking lot and it worked well as a backdrop. I'm not sure I have ever in my life looked more 'put together'. Now I have a few outfits and a profile photo and now I can move on to the next step!

You certainly look like you have it all together and can handle anything.

Re: SOS! Trade a custom bird portrait for fashion help?

You look rather intimidating to me -> in a great efficient and selfassured way!
Job well done (I am a wimp so intimidate easily!).


Is is awfully inapproriate to say you are a truely goodlooking lady?
(Just as an observation, not anything creepy/nasty I mean; since you are obviously not a parrot you are sooo not my type )

Re: SOS! Trade a custom bird portrait for fashion help?

Kiwi sent an application into Yellow-Nape Law International, Inc. for his Mom to be his Personal Staff Person 'legally.' The picture was attached and the application was approved by Pricilla herself! Pricilla's only question was what area of Law have you studied in and /or have been working in? FYI: If a full size, white SUV shows up at your place with a Yellow-Nape driving, that be Pricilla! So, your Masters Degree is in Law and your PHD is in Wowing!?!?

I have always knew you had it together lady, clearly you have now proven it to yourself!!!

April, I won't pretend to know anything about ladies' fashion or the particulars of makeup and such, but I'm a guy with two eyes... for what that's worth. Your look in that photo is both professional and quite fetching to the eye, with just the right hint of enigmatic near-smile to spark curiosity about who you are. Very nice, my friend!

And with 2 sisters who are 5'7" & 5'9", and a wife who is 5' even, I don't see 5'6" as particularly tall or short... and certainly nothing to be uncomfortable about. (Just my two cents, as no one can tell anyone else what to feel self-conscious about, right? Lol!)

Also, LOVED the example of your art with Kiwi! And looking forward to seeing more in the future.
