Road to Financial Freedom

  “Spendthrift” is my mom’s mantra for how she handles money. As soon as she started giving me monetary money when I was in 6th grade, she would tell me not to spend everything, especially on the things that I do not need. Thanks to my mom, I learned how to save in a piggy bank early on. But as I grow up, things change. I learned that to live a decent life, we need to work hard for the life that we want. But being a nurse in my country, the salary is not enough to feed our family let alone live a comfortable life. I have three children and pets at home. To sustain all our needs, I need to find ways how to earn in addition to what my husband is earning. I started to find ways how to earn passive income and a steady stream of income.

48 Photos : Week 1 Sultry Self-Portrait

But because my kind of idea was so hard to pull off alone, I had to ask for a back up. We set up our room and placed a dark backdrop with improvised LED lights to serve as a catch light. I am not good in lighting as well I only know well the feeling of posing in front of cameras and seeing too many halos from the lights that surrounds me. For my make up, I made a smokey eye and nude lipstick for my sultry look.

Here is my sultry and solitude portrait.

Photo taken with Nikon D7000 and 85mm lens.
It was also PP due to some unnecessary shadows on my face.



Here is the list of the concepts for the 48 photos challenge.


Let me know what you think and I will see you again in the next photo on Friday!
