Extras | Photoshoot – Simpler Times

Hi guys,

I’m back for an extra post – the story isn’t back until 31st of March. Instead, I bring you a photoshoot.

I felt like playing around with ReShade after seeing the cool stuff Lila Remonn managed to do with it (go check it out – she’s so good at it!) – it encouraged me to be a little ‘braver’ so to speak and use some of the cool effects that I might otherwise fear are a bit much.

Today, I wanted to do a shoot of Carlo and Vittoria, but one that was a bit more lighthearted and sweet – a throwback to when things were simpler in their relationship (no but seriously, there was a time when that was the case). Of course, I had to be a little bit messed up, so the building they’re standing by in one picture is the museum which is a place that holds bad memories for them – ha, ha πŸ˜€ What can I say: It’s hard to make something with these two that’s not a little messed up. Along with those pictures there are also just some Monte Vista scenery porn mixed in.

I’m sorry if this loads kind of slow. I couldn’t choose which pictures to leave out so there are many! Anyway – let’s get to those pics already!

That was it for now. I hope you liked looking at these. I had a lot of fun setting this up. As a last tidbit of info: I haven’t edited these except for resizing and, in two of them, removing a little hole in Vittoria’s skirt. The nice lighting and effects are all ReShade πŸ™‚

Now I think I’m going to relax for a bit. I’ve had the flu all week and been forced to attend my math course anyway, so it’s been a very long, hard week – and I’m still not entirely well. I hope you guys have a better time and I’ll see you guys for the next post πŸ™‚

    Oh my god, I love this!! *And* I’m so jealous that I probably can’t use ReShade on my four years old laptop! 😭😭
    Those pictures are amazing <3
    I hope you'll feel better soon, you should definitely rest now that this tough week is over! πŸ™‚

      Thank you so much <3 It's sooo much fun to play around with and I can't wait to do more with it πŸ˜€ I hope you'll some day get an awesome machine that can run it as well so you can try it out! I know how it feels having a machine that's less than capable.
      And again thanks <3

    Rest up, I hope you get better soon <3

      Yeah, it’s like with Carlo and Vittoria, it’s always a little sad even when it’s nice πŸ˜›
      Thank you <3 Monte Vista is such a nice town – it's hard not to choose a great setting there πŸ˜€

    These look so good. Reshade is AMAZING!!
    The setting and the lighting enhance the mood of Monte Vista. Brings back good memories of a time that seems so long ago.
    I hope you feel better. I have had the flu for over a week, and I am still not 100% over it. And PS: March 31 is my birthday!! πŸ™‚

    • NotJustaBook

      It’s a cool tool for sure πŸ˜€ Can’t believe how awesome everything looks! It helps that Monte Vista is a good town to take pictures in πŸ™‚
      Thank you – I hope you’ll feel completely well soon, too! Being ill is no fun πŸ™
      Aaah, I’ll have to remember that! πŸ˜€
