Well … it was a rough day at my house. It started out innocently enough. Avery wasn’t feeling well so she stayed home from school. After a trip to the pharmacy she was medicated and on her way to feeling better. She wasn’t really up for going anywhere so I took the opportunity to work on a project I’ve been putting off, my annual self-portrait.
For the last five years I have taken a picture of myself, usually in the summer, but this year has been so unusual that it's already November and I have no picture. So this morning I decided it was meant to be. I dug out some of my photography equipment. Set myself up and due to
user error technical difficulties what should have
taken 2 hours at the most ended up taking 6.
Everything that could go wrong did; camera battery low (check), light
meter screwed up (check), remote misbehaving (oh, yes) and to top it all off I’m
supposed to host a dinner party tomorrow night.
You may be wondering, “Is she prepared?”. NO – not even alittle.
This is how I felt when my equipment actually worked!
This girl said … “Dinner party tomorrow night? Bring it on!”
Danny thought this looked the most "natural". Photography tip - To get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, over expose your image. Did I mention my equipment was not working properly?
Well, I am still deciding which one is the ONE. Do you think it would be weird to serve peanut butter and jelly at a dinner party?
