_alessandro_: Bellissima!!! Davvero complimenti per questo favoloso ritratto!!! Un lavoro molto raffinato, e i lineamenti del viso di questa splendida modella sono davvero bellissimi! Se la incontri nuovamente, falle i complimenti per le sue belle labbra!😉😍 Buona notte Charmy...💋

charmychelle: Le ho detto ciò che hai detto ed è molto lusingata dalle tue parole! 😌😉 Grazie tanto Ale, è solo la prima autoritratto che ho fatto col Nikon, tutte le altre sono state “phone selfies”. Ho usato ancora il 35mm ed ero sola, ho fatto tutto da sola. Sono rimasta felice dal risultato. Ho pensato anche che sarebbe divertente fare un splash sulle labbra! 😁 Sono lieta che ti piaccia, grazie anche per i tuoi commenti su IG! Buon weekend a te! 😘💋
buzohippo: Beautiful touch of red! 💗 and you look so nice wearing this hat. 😉

charmychelle: Aww thank you, Maria! This is my favourite hat, it’s the same one that I used for all the other film noir portraits but this was actually the first one that I used my Nikon. All others were phone selfies! I’m glad you like the splash of red! 😁 Have a great weekend!
charmychelle: Aww thank you dear Karin, you’re very kind! 😊😊 Have a great weekend!

ttomzz: ...beautifully done, as always!!! You must have quite the collection of those hats...(an love the lipstick) 😎

charmychelle: Haha well I just have two of that kind of hat. This one is really black and the other one you’ve seen in my profile pic on my Facebook photography page. This is the same one that I’ve used in all of my film noir portraits last year. I like it because it’s big! 😁 This also marks the first time that I’ve taken a proper self portrait from the Nikon, as opposed to just being a phone selfie, the quality was certainly better! I’m so glad you like it my friend, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! ✨💖✨

stroppirob: Very glam and stylish, you're looking like a Film Noir movie star 🌟 📽 🎬😍😍😘
Posted: 2017 Nov 23 1:10:09 AM
charmychelle: Thank you so much Rob! 😌😄 This is the same hat that I used for all the other film noir portraits, the only differences now are that I used my Nikon instead of my phone and that I left a little splash of colour! 😁 Glad you like it, have a great weekend my friend! xxx

charmychelle: Aww thank you so much, you’re very kind! 😊 I love hats in general but I like this particular one because it’s big! 😁 And yes, it is sweater weather and I was happy with how it looked here! I’m glad you like it, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! ✨💖✨

charmychelle: Aww thank you Al! ☺️ This is my first proper Nikon self portrait, all others have been phone selfies! I was really pleased with how this one turned out and I thought it would be fun to do a splash on my lips! 😁 Glad you like it, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! ✨💖✨

jj*: Hello lovely Michelle...nice to hear from you! :-)..also sorry for replying just today!..I'm quite absent here since a while :-)..yet, I'm trying to catch up with you all, even if you won't hear from me :-)..well, I'm okay..I recovered from my broken arm meanwhile!..only little pain left sometimes :-)..also I moved into a new appartement & neighborhood already some months ago and I'm still busy making it my new "home"..therefore I missed out on quite some social networking etc :-)..yet, let me try to upload some pics from last year soon...thank you & a happy NEW YEAR for you! :-) X
_fredy: I would notice these beautiful lips for miles by far ... and then I would see this incredibly charming hat ... it would become warm to my heart and immediately click in my head - hey, it's Charmy !!! ❤ Fantastic photo profile 👒💋 my lovely friend !!!
Posted: 2017 Nov 25 2:57:07 AM
charmychelle: Aww I'm glad that my hat and lips have become recognisable to you! 😌 I had a bit of time to myself and decided to create another self portrait but this time with my Nikon. The splash on the lips was just a bit of fun, really, but it adds a nice touch! 💋 Thanks for your beautiful response on your photo, well if I showed my eyes then the focus would be taken away from my lips! 😅 I'm really glad you like my portrait, Fredy! 😃 Thanks for your wonderful comment, it's always a pleasure to read your words 💖 I wish you a very happy weekend! ✨🙌👒💄💋🙌✨
Posted: 2017 Nov 25 3:33:49 PM
_fredy: Thanks Charmy💐, for your wonderful words that coming straight from your beautiful heart 💓!!! 🙏🙋🙆
charmychelle: Aww thank you Dee! 😃 Out of all the portraits that I’ve done, this is the only one where I’ve used my Nikon. All others have been phone selfies! But I felt it was time for a change and I set this one up all on my own. The hardest part was getting the focus right but I used the 35mm again for the best chance of sharpness. It didn’t take many shots to get this, only 3 or 4. I thought it would be fun to make it a colour splash image! 😁 I’m delighted you like it, many thanks again! xxx

jerry0522: Not surprisingly your wonderful image has been a crowd pleaser and about time I joined the crowd hahaha I'm lucky in that I get to see this portrait on multiple sites! I love the mysterious and sensual nature of this image my friend...and of course it is very pleasing to the eye!!! Have a great week Michelle :)
Posted: 2017 Nov 27 3:33:26 PM
charmychelle: Haha yes, it is my profile pic on most social networks now! 😁 I feel that it’s the most polished self portrait that I’ve done, but that would be thanks to finally making the change from simple phone selfie to proper camera self portrait! 😅 I found some time for myself when I knew that I wouldn’t be disturbed for a while, so I dusted off my hat and just went for it! I used the 35mm for sharpness and I only needed 3 or 4 shots to get this one. I was going for mysterious, and I really wanted my lips to stand out and this seemed the obvious way to do that, with the colour splash! I was extremely happy with the result and glad that so many of you seem to like it too! 😃 Thank you for all of your comments Jerry, I think you’ll be seeing this one for a while! 😄🙃😉
laura andre: Beautiful shot 😍 Personally I always love a red lip 😁 And it might sound weird, but you have a really nice faceprofile. I really appreciate the shape of your jaws and chin. It's very feminine and pretty and makes me a bit jelly hehe. Hope you're having a lovely day Michelle! ❤💋
Posted: 2017 Nov 29 8:33:58 AM
charmychelle: Aww thank you Laura, no, I don’t find that weird at all, you’re very kind! 😊 You also have a beautiful face, dear! 😉 I’ve read your reply in your photo; it seems that your uncle has seen a lot of potential in you! 👍 I was the same when I got my first DSLR a little over a year ago, I couldn’t understand anything at first, but I learned as I went along. Like you I started on auto but after a few months I became more confident and I mostly use manual now. I listened to a lot of advice here, particularly from Jerry and Marisol, it always helps to learn from the best, but you also have your dad who obviously knows a thing or two about cameras! 😄 You have a fantastic camera to start off with, have patience and you will get there! 😊😉

charmychelle: Speaking of firsts, this portrait was actually the first one that I took with my DSLR, all others have been phone selfies! But I had the time to mess around and experiment so I got my tripod out, used the 10 second timer, got into position and voià! ☺️ That’s my favourite hat as it’s quite big 😅 and I just liked the idea of hiding my eyes and just showing my lips...and the colour splash was a fun way to make them stand out more! 💋 I’m very glad you like it! 😃 Have fun with your new camera, dear, I’m looking forward to seeing more images, you’re going to be a wonderful photographer! 😉😉 I’m having a lovely day, thanks, though it’s very cold, I think I’m too used to the climate of the Philippines! 😅 Have a lovely day, you too! xxx

bigfarmer: Tantalizing...you just have to know what is under that hat! Great job Charmychelle!!
Posted: 2017 Nov 30 11:54:32 AM
charmychelle: Aww thank you so much! 😃 I found it quite fun being a little mysterious..😎 This was actually the first time that I’ve done a self portrait with my camera, all others have been phone selfies. I just had time to mess around a bit and see what I could create when I set my tripod up! I must have told you before that I love hats in general and this happens to be my favourite one as it’s quite big and I feel that I can hide in it! 😅 I loved the idea of just showing my lips and everything clicked when I did the colour splash. I feel that it’s the most polished portrait that I’ve done so far. 😊 I’m very glad you like it, have a great night! 🙌

bigfarmer: Nice to know you switched to a DSLR for this shot. Phones have often just as much pixels, but these pixels are not that large and then there is the huge difference in glass. I like to say that phone and point 'n shoot pictures look good, but 2D. Pictures taken with good glass look more 3D. My daughter, who is starting to use a DSLR herself right now, mentioned your beautiful jaw line and the detail in light on that jaw line is where the quality of the camera shows. (Laura is pretty fond of you and always looking forward to your comments!)
Posted: 2017 Nov 30 11:35:06 PM
charmychelle: Thanks Daniel, you’ve put into words something that I was aware of but didn’t quite know how to express; 2D and 3D, of course, that’s the best way of explaining it! ☺️👍 I was very flattered and happy to read Laura’s comment. 💖 I’m delighted that she has a DSLR now so she can realize her true potential. I’ve always been impressed with her vision and style and her images are only going to improve more and more from now on. 😊 I also love chatting with her, as I do indeed with you! Thank you both for your lovely comments, I really and truly appreciate them! ❤️ Good night!
hogman72664: Style, grace, elegant,beautiful, mysterious,striking, gorgey, charming and totally lovely to see. Love the noir look that you have made your own. Superb selfie/portrait. Oh and at least there isn't a trace of Costa on your lips although I bet you'd leave a mark on their cups. :):)XX

charmychelle: I would have been delighted if you had just used any one of those words, but the fact that you’ve used them all makes me ecstatic!! 😃 I’ve done a few with this look, as you know, but this is only the first time that I’ve used my camera. I set up everything myself, tripod, timer an’ all, and just went for it! 😁 It’s deffo the most polished portrait that I’ve produced so far and I just loved the idea of a colour splash to my lips! A trace of Costa..., well, something like that might have looked interesting and made it look less perfect...an idea that I might pick upon again in the future... Even with the cup, they would make fantastic images, I’m sure, because red is such a powerful colour when used like this. Better start making my mark! 😉😉 Many thanks again for your kind words, my dearest friend, I’m very flattered when you say that I’ve made the noir look my own! ☺️ I’ve read your email and will respond as soon as I get a chance. In the meantime, take care, much love to you all! XXXXX ❤️❤️❤️
