Today I re-entered the downstairs area that has been recently abandoned. After cleaning up the debris that I've tossed down here and finally making the beds (you can come back now, Muriel!) it was time to play with my toys. I think I have now crossed over to geekdom, or at least put my big toe in there. The last few hours have been spent testing lighting systems, learning new menus, changing backdrops, downloading trials and going back for more testing. Darn, this is fun!
After taking nearly 100 photos and studying them to see how the lighting affects the subject, which in this case was me, I have come to some obvious conclusions.
1. I have my father's smile.
2. I have my mother's eyes.
3. Never put the background light behind your ear.
4. My gray hair shows more when it is short (cut yesterday).
5. It is time to wax again.
6. Thank you Adobe for Photoshop Elements.
