View Full Version : My first hair pic!

May 3rd, 2008, 02:30 PM

I just got a digital camera today :cheese: So...this is my hair. :o

I had to do an updo shot because it needs to be washed. I'll have to drag out my tripod and do some length shots later tonight when my hair is actually clean and presentable, lol.

Oooh, gorgeous!

Tell me: are you using a timer on your camera, or are you photographing the back of your own head (or getting someone else to do it)? I have no timer and no obliging family members and I find photos very hard to do.

Thank you for sharing - you have beautiful hair. Can't wait to see more pics!

For the above pic I didn't use a timer and I did it myself. After many failed tries :rolleyes: I found it was much easier to get a half-way decent shot by sitting, putting my head down (so I'm looking at the floor), and holding the camera with my arms straight up over my head.

Gorgeous shot, cutastrophe! I love the color. You have very pretty hair. :)

That's a great first picture! You have great hair and it's a lovely colour. Looking forward to seeing some length shots. :)

Wow, good shot and GORGEOUS hair! Thanks for the tip about bending your head down, I'm going to try that next time I bun!

Hi Cutastrophe, what a beautiful photo of your hair, and this is the most beautiful updo. Your hair has the loveliest shine and colour.:flowers:

Your hair looks lovely. I wish mine looked that good when it needed a wash!
Enjoy your new camera!

May 3rd, 2008, 06:11 PM
I was just thinking the exact same thing! Her hair looks sooooo clean and beautiful! Mine just looks greased and flat when it's dirty!

Congrats on the new camera and the first pic posted!!! I love your hair! It's so thick and the updo is so cute!

Your hair is very pretty, cutastrophe. I too would like to see it down.

I love it! Your hair is such a pretty color. :flower:

Here it is down. Gee...can you tell I cut my own hair?? :bigeyes: Wow, I never knew just how crooked it really was until now, lol.


May 3rd, 2008, 07:19 PM
You have lovely hair. Very silky-looking, and a pretty color!

A braid pic.

Oh this is too much fun :D Now I'll be all the more addicted to LHC. I made a couple photo albums, I'll add more pictures there.

Thanks everyone for the nice compliments. :blossom:

your hair look great! I like the color but also the bun …mmm, I need to get one of these clips :D

May 3rd, 2008, 10:30 PM
great photo :)

May 3rd, 2008, 10:37 PM
Your hair is really lovely, cutastrophe. I especially like the picture of your braid. :)

May 3rd, 2008, 10:48 PM
I know you just put your hair up for the photo, but wow! It looks really cool. And thanks for the photo-taking hints, I have a lot of trouble working out how to get decent back-of-head shots!! Hope you have fun with your new camera, how exciting!! :cheese:

oh im addicted to photos too ;o), your is stunning, i love the colour its beautiful x

Hey, a fellow Minnesotan! Your hair looks to be in great condition, and I particularly like the last style that you linked to. I do this same untied-and-plated-braid when my hair is heavy enough to hold it without coming completely undone.

Oh, and the camera is nice too :D I usually have to edit my photos in irfanview just to get the colors and gamma right. I've been realizing very slowly that I'll need to upgrade soon :(

I like the braid picture.Nice and Lovely hair.keep sending pictures.

May 4th, 2008, 06:56 AM
beautiful hair, wow...it is a bit croked isn't it? How'd you manage that? I cut my own hair too but the ends are so thin if i did do it crooked you wouldn't be able to tell anyway! Nice hairtoys!

You don't have a self timer on yours? I do...its a blessing but i find myself taking photos of myself without it as i don't have a tripod anyway!

May 4th, 2008, 07:44 PM
absolutely lovely color, and I wish I could get a braid to stay un-banded like that! very cool looking.

May 6th, 2008, 07:08 PM
Thanks for the down pics. Your hair is gorgeous! It also looks so soft.

May 6th, 2008, 07:46 PM
Way to go! I got my DH to take my avatar and sig pics, but I should have him take one post trim. He trimmed my hair today about an inch cause the chlorine has taken its toll and it has probably been 6 months since my last one!

May 6th, 2008, 07:46 PM
I think my signature pic shows that I needed my hair trimmed.

May 6th, 2008, 08:06 PM
Your hair looks loverly! Is that just a partially undone bun? It looks awesome!
