More takes and thanks

I wanted to take a moment and thank everyone who comments here, and whose blogs inspire me when I read them. I’ve come to look forward to running things by you all and getting your feedback, particularly about my career, and I really value what you have to say. Thank you!

That said, how about a few more photos from Sunday’s shoot? Oh and guess what – we get Monday off again, because the school made the State championships in football and it was determined (by whom, I do not know) that the weather was going to be too bad here Saturday to play. So the game was re-scheduled to Monday, and yes, the entire school gets the day off so they can attend. Hey, it’s football, and this is Texas. Anyway. I’m sure most of you are reading about yet another day I get off for no good reason and wondering why in the hell I would consider going back into the public schools to work my butt off again, but what can I say. I miss teaching, and there has to be more than life than keeping a boring, unsatisfying job because it’s easy, right? I know. I’m still crazy.

This next photo was me playing around with my Speedlites again, then running it through Pixlr:


And up next is a re-do – I really didn’t like the tone of this photo from the last post, so I re-edited it and came up with the new one, on the right:

Much less green on the right!

And another one I Pixlr-ed. I am so thrilled with how much great movement I got out of this cheap-o Halloween costume!



Since I have another 3-day weekend coming, I may try to put up my new white backdrop (supposedly wrinkle-free, we’ll see about that) and shoot some more. I already have such a backlog of photos I’ve yet to upload to Flickr it’s ridiculous, but I just can’t help myself!

  1. How did I miss this? Shows you how slammed I have been. I LOVE the first one. Really exceptional. It is really great to have these pictures to look forward to, your imaginative costumes and special effects are truly unique and a welcome diversion. I hope you get to make a retirement career out of doing this!

    • Thanks! If I take this teaching job, I don’t know how much time I’ll have for it at all, but I am going to try and keep it up. I think I can, I guess I am just having some fears right now about it…

      • You will probably have a couple of weeks of ramp up and regrouping and then things will get back to normal. It would be exciting, I can imagine, to teach seniors – more rewarding because presumably they are more adult and can handle more complex and nuanced material. Anyway, whatever, you seem to master whatever you take on.
