White skin and portraits..

\
White skin!\
\
With my brother around (now gone again) questions that I stopped thinking about appear once more. For example why do people walk around with umbrellas in bright sunlight? \
\
It\’d5s a rather strange phenomenon if you consider that people in the country where I come from do pretty much the opposite. In China everything is about getting as white skin as possible. Lotions and other skincare products often said to whiten your skin and people use them as crazy\
\
Origin to the Chinese way is about wealth. The richer you where the more you could stay indoors and your skin of course didn\’d5t get as much sun as people on the field. This was true in Europe too, in the old days. \
\
When asking an everyday Chinese she says it look cleaner. \
\
But still, aint it quite fun that the grass is always greener somewhere else?! I can tell you one thing and that is that my own hysteria about my skin color is pretty cool now. Why look browner when nobody cares?\
\
New portrait setup\
\
Now off and by a D70s to a passing by friend. My brother is gone also. And a new light setup for portraiture is done. Will show you soon what the result looks like.\
