Kristy,

I'd have to agree with Jay. Although my first thought wasn't of MA, but more along the lines of something more harsh.

On the camera left side of her face, it looks a bit blochy, almost giving her a bruised appearance. Also her lower half of her face looks a bit heavy, and she definately has a masculine jaw line and in this shot she is looking a bit "jowley".

Okay... so it's a bad shot all around... Embarassing.... :oops:

You are right Brian.. Her skin is blotchy.. and I tried to soften it.. but it is what it is... I'm not into spending too much time trying to perfect it... it's better than the original splotchiness.. just softer and lighter maybe. lol... (call me lazy).

On the angle... It's my problem... you see at 5 ft. 3... I'm too short. I was trying to stand on my tippy toes.. but really needed a stepping stool to get a good angle on it. Since I didn't have anything to stand on... well.... you see what happens.

So maybe this is off to the trash bin... blah....

Now if I could just figure out how to grow about 6 more inches...... (see why I like shooting kiddos... they are the right height, lol....)

Did you sell off every chair in your house?

Kidding aside, a three-level step ladder would probably be a good investment.
When I went to PMA a couple of years ago, the guy showing off the (then) new MkIII was standing on two apple boxes because the models being shot were probably 6'5" tall in heels...

Improvise .. Adapt .. Overcome!!

Well.. I do have one of the step ladders.... I forgot to bring it that day.... :oops:
And it was at her house, full of people... and the kitchen chairs had been cleared away to undisclosed location to make room for buffet tables....

and FWIW... I always wear 2-3 inch heels of some sort when I'm shooting (unless of course I end up barefoot.. but my shoes are usually close by. I shudda had her squat down.. lol...

Maybe I should learn how to walk in those 6-inch platform shoes... so the pole dancing class is back on... hahaha!

Dibs on shooting that! :lol:

OBTW, the guy that shot my wedding brought a six foot ladder to the church and the reception .. just in case.

and what the heck is with yu having like 18,000 posts.... have you no life... you travel.... where do you find the time...

and shooting that..... NOT! (hee hee)

and my stepladder... used to always be in my car... then I traded it for a yoga mat.. now I just sit at my computer and have allergies..... and edit pictures of poorly composed people wishing I could figure out how to alter a face in photoshop... all the while watching 7 children eating lunch and tossing food on my "mopped yesterday" floor.....

Fun life! (maybe I should take up writing and give the camera a break.)

Oh and one more thing.... Did he actually use it?

So here's the scene.... Kristy is walking around at a backyard wedding reception... the place is packed. Can't get a clean shot of anything. She has a huge camera with a big lens on it.... and is trying to navigate the crowd.

She see's a "moment" starting to unfold... so quick.. she grabbes a 12-pound metal stepladder that is some how strapped to her back.. and when it it folded up, it's tall enough that the legs drag on the ground behind her....

So anyway... she knocks some lady in the head when she is trying to get it off her back, and when she turns to apologize, she knocks a glass of red wine onto another lady's dress... oops....:oops: Finally the ladder is open, but not after accidentally putting it on someone's foot... and leaving a nice puncture wound...

Well.. that magical moment that was about to unfold.... it's over.. and all that's left of the scene... are a few empty beer cans lying on the grass.... and an empty pail of water... whatever that means.

I think tall shoes are in order.

Kristy - how about something like this? Should be light and fold/unfold pretty rapidly.

Better yet...

If she asked really nicely, I bet someone would be willing to be assistant for the day...

Brian, sweet shot of your new addition. Let's see more!!!

Everyone else, stop giving stop giving Kristy a hard time. :p

I'm settled into my temporary digs for the next few months. Unfortunately, I'm back on the night shift for the next few weeks. Hard to do sightseeing unless I want to flip my sleep schedule back and forth. Oh well, at least I still have a job.
Russ and I had a good time on the drive up here (he flew home and will be visiting). We stopped at some wildlife refuges along the way. I saw my first pheasant and got his picture. Conditions were pretty bad...the wind picked up and stirred up dust, it started to rain and then the thunder started. Not much post processing done because all I have is my uncalibrated laptop. Hope he looks ok.
