Alright-y then I was tagged by PG a while ago to do an unedited self-portrait. The rules were:
As soon as you learn you have been tagged to play, you take a photo right away, no cleaning up, no primping, no preening. Just grab the camera and shoot. No cleaning up the photo in post either.
Now in my defense I didn't do it right away because I had just had surgery that day, and was totally knocked up on oxycodone.
Then I just forgot. :)
So here it is at long last, an unedited photo! This is me Monday about half way through my 3 hour hike. Scary I know!
So now I'm suppose to tag some people, and I decided to tag all you guys. :)
I also thought, to make this a little bit more interesting, that you should also include a few of favorite photographer under the following:
At least 1 favorite photographer in the field of photography in which you plan to pursue.
For me that's product/studio and real estate photography. And my favorite photographer in the product/studio is Jim Talkington you can see him here and here. And for real estate it's got to be Scott Hargis his website and his flickr.
At least 1 favorite photographer who mainly used film.
My favorite film photographers are, Walker Evans, Larry Towell, Julius Shulman and of course Ansel Adams.

This is the 3rd or 4th image I edited with my new copy of Adobe Lightroom 2.0. At the moment, I'm in the middle of editing an event I shot last night with this new software. It is wonderful and a real time savor for editing groups of RAW files at once. At the event I took over 400 photos, and "flagged" the ones I liked. You can do one just adjustment a single photo but then copy the settings and paste them into the other 20 or so all of the same camera settings. It's a great little program.
