So, I spent most of my day laid up in bed recovering from a couple days of terrible sleep and back and shoulder pain. I took a lovely photo of myself trying to recover. You can see it on my Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/durghan if you find yourself really needing to make yourself miserable.
However, after a bunch of painkillers, laying on ice, and several naps, I evebntually woke up in fairly good condition. So, business partner Mel and I went shopping for some supplies for our photobooth. I kept waiting for something to catch my eye for a photo op, but nothing was happening. Until I saw these glass bottles. There were several different styles to choose from but most of them allowed the counters to be seen, which I didn’t want. These were the only ones that would fill the frame nicely.
In addition, I took the photo on my iPhone. There is currently a HUGE movement of cellphone photography. You can get a good launch into it by visiting http://www.iphoneography.com/
Anyway, here’s the photo. Nothing amazing. Just completed. Following this image, is something I’ve slapped together showing a number of great modifications using Topaz Adjust. I haven’t seen this many good changes in one image! A lot of them look very similar, and the image you see when you click on it is only 25% of full size but should let you see differences between the various styles.
