I was feeling kind of blah that day and the photo showed it! Bags under the eyes, dull-looking skin, grungy gray t-shirt, hair all a mess, NO makeup on, etc. Fortunately, I had that rainbow over one eye to give me a little color.
Enter PhotoShop! I love, love, LOVE this program! Get rid of the bags, give the skin a makeover, change the color of the t-shirt to something a little more flattering, change the hair COMPLETELY, and add a little lipstick. Below, you will find the original and the edited photographs.
I call the one on the right "Medusa meets Rainbow Brite".

Motivation is my biggest problem. I have none. Recently, I received some advice from an RCC photography graduate and it would prove valuable if I would just follow it. He said that I should get out and shoot something...anything. So I went out into the back yard and shot some clover.
And then it started raining. So I pulled some strawberries out of the fridge. I was hungry. But then I looked at them and thought, "I should shoot these before I eat them." So I did.
To everyone who reads this blog (both of you), thanks for the motivation!

Our last photo assignment for Advertising Photography was to shoot a piece of jewelry. The specifications were "close up and dazzling". Now, I wouldn't say mine is dazzling. It doesn't have any actual jewels. Is it still jewelry if there are no jewels? We had to use a large format camera with a medium format digital back, tethered to use CaptureOne software. It was frustrating! With a little help from my friends PhotoShop and Maria B., this is my final image.
