Category Archives: Photo Booth
Shots taken using the “photo booth” program on our iMac.
Today the kid did my hair and make-up, for the first time. I have to admit, I’m surprised it took her this long to ask to do so. And even though we had things to do (out and about) afterwards, I offered myself as canvas.
What did I learn from this little foray into pre-k beauty? Not much has changed in the last 20 years. When I was fourteen I rocked the whole blue eyeshadow thing, and today (at 34) I can still rock it. 😉
And rather than a mere photograph of her work, the girl wanted a video. So here it is:
I am as giddy as a schoolkid! My iPad 2 arrived today. I’d ordered it from the online Apple store a few weeks ago so am super excited that it finally got here. And yes, it’s engraved (with OUR song, my name, and my email address).
Why am I so excited? Well, besides being a gadget nut (I really do love a new tech toy), this is going to make my life sooo much easier. I’ll be able to use it for a lot of things, but the reason I bought it was this:
That’s right! I’m taking my photography business paperless. All my forms will now be electronic only.
Over the next few days I hope to find the time to redesign all my photography releases so that they will now be strictly e-documents. Book me for a shoot, and you’ll be able to fill out your information, and sign your name directly on the iPad. How cool is that???
I also have plans to streamline the booking process as well – but that’s going to take a little more time, a little more investimagating, and a little more work.
I’m excited. This is going to totally change the way I handle all my documents and forms. Sooo looking forward to this.
LMAO Why yes, I’m a nerd. Thanks for asking. LOL
For those of you who celebrate based on the Celtic calendar, have a wonderful new year! Together we enter the dark, but within it is the promise of light and new life. Share your table, your harvest, and your cheer with those around you, and may you be blessed throughout this new year.
The title about says it all. LOL
I LOVE photography. The process of capturing life. Small perfect moments that we might have otherwise missed. Gifts. Vital and full. Real, transparent, true. Honest. Beautiful. It makes my soul sing. I truly, truly love capturing life.
What I don’t love, is building a photography website. I don’t like that I need to market myself and my skills. I don’t like discussions of price points, and packages. I don’t like the BUSINESS of photography. LOL But apparently it’s one of those necessary things that you just deal with so that you can have as much of the JOY part as possible.
So today I’m a little burned out. Not on photography. But on the website I’m building to share the business end of photography.
One thing I did do today that I am kinda excited about (and that IS part of the business end of things) was to come up with a really cool photography package. I’ve called it the “Make it Right” package. And it’s all about giving people what they hoped for to begin with, when they ended up with generic, boring, cookie-cutter family portraits from an in-studio photography sitting. Check it out at http://www.facebook.com/tdfoto. And make sure to give me a “like” while you’re there. I’ve already given away one portrait sitting, and plan on making many more draws in the days to come. All you have to do is “like” my page to enter… and there are prizes for local AND long-distance folks. So I do hope you’ll drop by and give me a “like”. 🙂
Night all. Gonna go watch my baby sleep for a while.
Oh hey! I still haven’t told you about all the awesome stuff coming up this summer with the Green Party of Saskatchewan. We’ve got some great things in the works that I hope you’ll all be a part of. It’s going to be a great year, and this summer is going to get it kicked off right. But I guess you’ll have to wait a little longer to find out all the details. 😉 hehehe…
Night all. 😀
I chose my Nikon D70. Sure it’s outdated, and not as cool as the newer Nikon DSLRs… but it’s mine. And unlike some other “weapon”, mine is all about the truth. 😀
So, it’s almost nine, and I haven’t taken a photo for today. LOL My solution was to use photobooth, and I grabbed the closest thing to me to capture. That just happened to be my camera. This is after I played with it a bit using iPhoto.
At twenty to ten and I sit down at the computer only to realize that I haven’t shot any stills today. Took some video of the wee girlie… but haven’t done any still photography. So what’s a girl to do? Well, this particular girl fires up Photo Booth, turns on the comic book setting, and leans in nice and close. 🙂
I’m too tired to think… here’s me. Just got home from a night out. TIRED. Happy too though.
Lily-Ann and I were playing around in photobooth today. There’s a setting that takes four photos in quick succession. We did it… three times. I pasted all three together in photoshop to create one long strip of photos. So it’s not REALLY one photo, but it’s one file. 🙂
