Sugar Skull

I woke up this morning feeling terrible, I'm pretty sure I do have tonsillitis, as I looked up the symptoms and I'm almost a complete match.  I've booked a doctors appointment for later so I can find out for sure and took the day off college.  I didn't really want to because I have 100% attendance, and I really hate missing lessons and catching up, but I got up and didn't even have the energy to get dressed so have just been resting all day.  Hopefully I'll be better before Friday though, because I'm going to see A Day To Remember in London and they're one of my favourite bands!

I took these photos for my photography assignment.  The brief is 'people' and after seeing a ton of sugar skull pictures at halloween I wanted to try it for myself and I'm really happy with how the images turned out.  They were all edited on photoshop, using the curves function. I don't really know how it works yet, but I had a play around and it turned out alright.  I am, however, getting a little tired of having just me in the pictures, mostly because working with a tripod is difficult, especially as mine is so temperamental! I'd like to work more with models, but my teacher gives us such short deadlines that I don't have time for it which is a shame.  Anyway, what do you think? (:
love amy x
