Love the photos, Vid! The boys look super happy and summery! I like the styling however I’m not a fan of the typography you’ve done.

Yeah that's it for scores. We're lucky to get any scores with how things been going. The host seems busy lately.

Anyway, this assignment was so much fun to do! I was worried I wouldn't be able to pull it off at first. 4 pics and 4 pair of poses can be a lot, but I did it! :D Finding 4 set of poses wasn't easy, but it wasn't too bad. One of the poses is even an in-game interaction, so I just had to find 3. I think the styling was the most annoying part. CAS is slow and it's not many choices for men when it comes to clothes. I ended up downloading some cc shirts and making the best of them. I did at first plan to make Alex (on the left) shirt green, but I didn't want them to look like Christmas colors with green and red. I figure light blue and red would be safer and could always just make my planned blue background a dark blue. When I finally finished in CAS, I moved them into a empty house. Colored the walls accordingly and went to work.

I tested all the poses beforehand. Even the in-game ones as I wasn't sure if I could get 2 good poses out of any of the traits or interactions. When I did get around to doing the actual shoot I knew what poses I was using. I even shot extra pictures with different poses just in case. I end up using all the original shots, but it was nice having backups in case one of the poses looked stupid or wonky. I think the longest part of that process was waiting on the 3rd shot. I made them talk to themselves about 3 or 4 times with the insane trait to get that shot. I wanted a picture of them looking like they were interacting with each other in a silly manner and oddly enough it worked. The last shot and poses are my favorite though. Those poses came from a couple pose pack, but it looked tame enough to use for my siblings. It came out looking really cute!

I think my only regret is the font at the bottom. I didn't really know what to put there or what kind of font to use for it, so I went with something cheesy and summery. I should of took my time to make up my mind about that.

The next assignment is the finale. I tend to suck at finales, because the pressure of them scares me and they usually consist of more than one pic. Unfortunately I have to do 3 pics all together. Part 1 requires a family photo of them when they were younger and to recreate that family photo with them grown up. That sounds hard! Part 2 is simple and just wants a GAP clothing AD. I don't look forward to part 1. Sure I could make it easier on myself and not include extras, but I have to go out with gusto and lots of poses. D: Part 2 is going be easy, but who knows how much patience I'll have after I'm done with part 1. It's bad enough my creativity is not at it's best right now. *sigh* Wish me luck! I'm going need it!

  1. Good luck with the finale. I'm sure it will turn out fine.

    I like this one with the photobooth. I think you were right not to go with the green shirt - they would have looked totally Christmasy! Instead they do look like they're having a fun time in the summer.
