Logistics

What a shit week. After a spending hiatus of many months I decided it was time to splash out on some new computer and photographic bits and bobs. What happens? Of the seven items ordered two have gone adrift in transit and one item is DOA. Ordering stuff online is usually easy but finding the procedure for reporting a problem not so. I’m now waiting to see if and when my money is returned and then starting the ordering process all over again because the missing bits are still required.

Jealousy

I’m upset. I’ve recently come across some excellent photos of a model I know very well and the photographers have done a far better job of making her look sexier than I have done. What makes it even more annoying is she isn’t even showing anything. Note to self, let the model keep her clothes on, well for at least a couple of snaps.

Failure Breeds Success

Two contrasting attempts at balancing natural window light and flash. A recent set, which in my humble opinion looks pretty good if you ignore the slight greenish cast caused by the sunlight filtering through the shrubbery, followed by a feeble early effort where the composition is sloppy and the flash is overcooked.

Pushing On

I’ve just finished my third shoot of the year. Once again the model was not new to the Chateau de Vaughan but she was sporting a slightly different look to when I first snapped her so I’m quite pleased with the results. I’ve also been playing email tennis with two very pretty models who have yet to travel to Rugby so I’m feeling kind of upbeat about my chances of new faces. We will see Mister Big Ears, we will see.

Should It Stay Or Should It Go

I’m suffering from a touch of GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome). I’ve had my iMac for over 7 years now and used it almost every day so surely I can’t be seriously chastised for considering an update. In most respects it still works well until that is it comes to processing the image files from the D810 camera where it definitely struggles. Picking my replacement iMac model is easy, if expensive, but then you have to add on the extra costs of making the legacy hardware and software work. Methinks my credit card could be about to take a humongous hit.
