So, I posted over at Steffimariechen's blog (which, if you haven't been to see, you ought to) that she has inspired me of late with her prolific and very welcome return to captioning. I mean, don't get me wrong, there are some very inspiring people captioning out there daily like Dee and Elle and Mistress Simone. I am assuming you know all of these people if you're reading my blog.
Anyway, I've had a bit of a day of it today and so I thought I'd try my hand at making a caption again, something I haven't done in a long while, and this was partly inspired by the return of Steffi. I am sorry, I realise that using powerpoint is a poor tool choice and that my previous efforts at captions aren't exactly... well, they're not the greatest pieces of work ever committed to the electronic medium. However, I am reasonably annoyed enough at various things that have happened today to take solace in the use of an image that has haunted me, in a good way, since I saw it.
Standard copyrights apply, of course, and I'll happily remove it if people get in contact with legalities.
I welcome any and all responses about how to improve. For example, I think I ought to have had the close up of the face on top of the left hand side of the caption, and I would have liked to frame the image somehow. If I ever get my own laptop I know that I shall need something like photoshop on it so that I can sample and use the purple colour on the corset, something I wanted to run through the piece, and the complementary red of the hair. I'd also want to play around more with the colours in the image, to give a sort of fuzzy outer glow to it all, fading into blackness right where the kiss is happening. Also, removing silly details like the lamp, which I think detracts from the situation. Maybe also play with the frame of reference so that there is less space for the text and the image can take a bit more space. At present I feel that it is made smaller by the text on the right than it needs to be.
Anyway, yes, for your consideration.
Words of warning and welcome:
This is very much my blog, so don't be surprised if this doesn't follow accepted patterns and norms. Obviously it started out as a blog about my cross-dressing but it has developed a great deal since then. It is a place where I can be anonymous and honest, and I appreciate that.
It will deal with many things and new readers would do well to check out the New Readers' Page above this and the tag down there on the right. Although there's nothing too bad in here there will be adult language, so be careful. If you think this needs a greater control, please let me know. Thank you!
