Which Are You?

Modeling, modeling, modeling. For some of you, this could be a true passion, for others, you couldn't care less. But for me, I love it. I'm not a big fan of being the model, I'm more interested in the backstage work, specifically the photography, as that is actually a love of mine.

When you see an advertisement, an editorial, or even a commercial on tv, what do you think? "I want that product!", "Wow, she is so pretty!" or "Oh my god, those colours, that background, that model, they just work so... perfectly." I'm the latter. I think about what type of camera did they use, who shot it, did they photoshop much of it? 

Sure modeling might be fun, the real fun has to be turning an average shot into something spectacular! I have so many options for the future, what do I want to be when I grow up? Being a photographer or going into the advertising business are both on the list (as well as doing something in the line of chemistry or writing). 

And I guess this somehow ties into why I like modeling competitions on stardoll so much, on stardoll you are the photographer as well as the model. 

So I suppose, the reason of this post is to ask you this; are you the photographer or are you the model?

Well as I'm having to think about what I'm going to do after high school and such I have thought a lot about my future. I have pretty much decided that I want to go into the advertising business. (: I don't know if I want it to be fashion related, but that would always be fun! (:

but if I had to chose between model or photographer I'd definitely say photographer. That's why I like "modeling" on stardoll. I get to be a photographer, but I get to make up everything in the scene. Ultimately no limits. The fact that I'm using my medoll as a model is just a plus (:
