Today was filled with a very long demo from 8-2:30pm. Longer than most. The site had many questions. They were very nice and I had a good time but there were many many questions. I wasn’t stumped at all the whole time either. After the demo I had a 2+ hour drive back to Tennessee to my hotel.
You may have noticed that I’ve done a second self portrait for the December Challenge. I didn’t really want to do one but I also didn’t find any subjects I could photograph today. At least not after my demo. I could have asked one of the people at the demo if they wouldn’t have minded being a model for the portrait, however I do like to keep my work life and blogging life separate. It is less complicated that way. So I drove from VA to TN and stopped for dinner. I’m still not up to asking strangers if I can take their photo. So I ate dinner came back to the hotel and set up this shot.
I checked into another hotel. I took my gorillapod, set it up on the shower rod in the bathroom because that was where there was the best light. I set my point and shoot to timer, color accent mode and no flash. Then after a bunch of not so great photos I decided upon this one. I wanted the red on the T-shirt to really pop, but I am pink so my skin tone showed up on the color select. I used PhotoShop Elements to edit the saturation and contrast to get this effect.
Here are the photos that didn’t make the cut.
Speaking of making the cut. I am neck and neck with Reverse Turkey and tomorrow is the last day of round one of the 3rd International Blog Cup.
Don’t forget that I’m hosting 3 contests this month including.
And also I’m doing really well in the 3rd International Blog Cup but I need your votes every day in order to win.
