MMXII::20::EDITING A PHOTO A DAY IN 2012

MMXII::20::AFTER
I quite like where this edit is taking me.  It made the wheels start spinning, unfortunately I had much work to do so I couldn’t play more. I think I will go back and try this as a black + white.  I love that that these enormous antlers (and trust me they were enormous) could feel so light and ethereal just floating in the ether like they are.  I mentioned yesterday my very busy day, I wasn’t exaggerating (even though I do have the propensity to do that). I was so busy and on such a strict time frame that I actually set a timer for each task. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I was able to accomplish with this little trick. I will be here all weekend, but I will bid adieu and bonne weekend to those that will be off enjoying their weekend.

I will be editing a photo a day for the remainder of 2012::Project MMXII, this is my ‘after’, you can view the ‘before’ here.

MMXII 19:: EDITING A PHOTO-A-DAY IN 2012

MMXII::19::AFTER
I have palpable exhaustion, after an extraordinary long and taxing day with the world’s most difficult client I attempted my edit for the day, I really liked it at first and then thought perhaps the ‘before’ was better. Never good to have your ‘before’ better than your after, right? I thought like this pale, peachy, pinky color was soothing, but now that I’ve spent more time with it I am worried it’s the color of band-aids. Tomorrow is going to be much better, I will bring it on with the edit and will be packing my head off. I love shipping day, it feels like Christmas, but without all that last minute frantic stress involved. I do have to stop late in the afternoon to visit my new dentist, does anyone else get as excited by professional teethe cleaning? You’d think I was offered a trip around the world, I am  giddy with anticipation.

SOUVENIR FOTO SCHOOL STUDENT TESTIMONIAL

“Practice makes perfect. I knew this…and yet. There I was, complaining about my poor photography skills but only taking pictures for celebrations and blog posts. I decided to do Souvenir Foto School because I knew it would provide me the much needed motivation to take pictures every day. I figured I would snap a few pictures for as many days as I could and try not to embarrass myself too much. Instead, I ended up having an incredible time, meeting new people I still interact with today, and have on my walls some of my favorite pictures taken to date. I learned when the light was best in my house (4pm, by the dining room table) and figured out that whole depth of field thing. As a bonus, I posted my daily pictures on my blog, and it ended up being one of my favorite blog series to date.”

MMXII::18::EDITING A PHOTO A DAY IN 2012

MMXII::18::AFTER
This editing project for me is an exercise in discipline, an exploration of creativity and an unexpected walk down memory lane. The only problem is, my memory doesn’t seem as sharp as it usually is.  I looked at this photo and for the life of me could not figure out what it could be.  It looks like a skeleton of an octopus, except I know Octopi don’t have a skeleton.   They do have a beak, but there’s no bone in their tentacles. I would think it was a plaster cast except it looks like bone. I just don’t know of any Cephlapod with an internal or external skeleton. In that case, why would the museum make the plaster cast (if it is that), look like a skeleton?  I figured this isn’t an octopus but some other species or a very imaginative exhibit designer?
