It’s not easy being regarded as the ‘photography guru’ sometimes. I know that may seem laughable to the much-more-talented-than-me photographers here on pbase but there are indeed some quarters where that’s what people think of me. I didn’t invite the moniker but it’s come about through evolution.
So anyway, someone said ‘I need a photo of connect 4’ I said ‘you pay for a copy of the game and I’ll shoot it’ so he did and now I have to come up with the goods!
Do you know what? Making the bloody game look remotely interesting is challenging to say the least. What’s worse is that my ‘best idea’ needs photoshop work that I’m not really capable of.
So, it’s nearly 9pm, I have no idea what to cook for supper and I’m sitting here feeling decidedly grumpy without fulfilling my promise to my friend.
So, here is a duff shot – deliberately de-focussed with the rather neat idea that defocusing would eliminate the need to remove the brand name from all of the red and yellow discs, which it has done but now I need help to get what I want…..I might get there with DMs help, although that’s probably dependent on me coming up with a good idea for supper and a bit sharpish as it won’t land on his plate until 9.30pm or so at this rate……
I am just about the most shite wife/housewife/whatever that the world has ever known so my role as both of the above is also not easy.
Last year, I was in a more exotic location!
