The other day I was on the way to the gym. It was late which isn’t my habit. I like to get my workouts done in the morning but sometimes I have to switch my schedule a bit. It was already afternoon by the time my schedule cleared so I hopped in the car. I was passing a clothing store and on the spur of the moment decided to stop in for a minute and see if I could find a normal pair of jeans.
Jeans should be easy to find, right? Sadly, that’s not the case. It seems the powers that be in the fashion universe have decided that a good old pair of jeans is simply too boring and they’ve come up with a fashion forward substitute they call jeggings. Jeggings are a horrible combination of jeans and leggings. They fit like the most uncomfortable pair of tights you can imagine. They cling to your legs, they cling to your EVERYTHING and there are exactly 6 women in the entire world they look good on.
I can hear you guys out there thinking. You’re saying to yourself that these don’t look so bad and that this is a great thing for a woman to wear, right? Well they make them for you too. That’s right, If you want to see women wearing these I say you should stuff your…stuff in a pair for a day and see how comfy you feel.
I didn’t have much luck finding regular jeans but I did find a pair of shorts I wanted to try on. I went into the dressing room, shut the door and realized that the lighting was excellent in there for taking physique pictures. Good lighting and a three-way mirror…a gym rat’s delight.
All body sculptors (and photographers) know that lighting makes a big difference in how your body looks in a photo. I’ve learned that no matter what my body really looks like, it’s going to look washed out and flat in my upstairs bathroom and therefore I never enter that room. That’s a joke but I don’t try to take physique photos there. Now and again you find an unexpected place that has excellent conditions like the dressing room at a department store. I never did get any clothes but I did get a couple decent photos.
