I REALLY have to share this with you...
Just last week I shared with you the story about my cousin, Amy Melious, and how she developed the photo of our Grandpa Jack with a Photoshop composite and acrylic paint. She did two versions of Jack, one for her brother John, and one for the Cattlemans Restaurant.
She lives in Canada and John lives in Santa Rosa, CA., and I live in Portland, OR and they just *happened* to be passing by my house? Last Saturday? WHAT????? - (it's a long story...)
I couldn't believe it!
AND, they had John's picture of Grandpa Jack in their car!!!!
John and Amy! :) Studio Tip
I just got this gooseneck flexible thingy...made for a cell phone or a tablet?
I use it for my handmade viewfinder. (Based on Carol Marine's book)
It helps me crop in or frame the still life.
