Today I thought I'd show a little of the behind the scenes work with our pictures. For the three of us we take about 200 pictures a week +/-. Then the Lap Lady has to go through them and delete blurry ones, crop, change levels, colors, etc. This is all hard because we work on a Mac at home and the colors look beautiful and then at the LL's work where she reads other blogs everything looks so much darker and less brilliant. But you can't win, every monitor is different.
The Lap Lady tries to get me to look up at the camera so I meeze at her because I want her to play with me and the squiggle.
Then we wait a little as I'm being rather patient hoping she'll put it down and play with me.
And there you have it- a nice shot with my eyes open (as with all of our pictures, if you biggify the effect is much more detail). That's the main goal of all of our pictures, is to get our blue eyes in nice natural light because no matter what she seems to do flashes just don't work for blue eyes. Chase is much easier but then again he's always sleeping (don't tell him I said that!!).
Latte update: OMC! So you know how I won the Breeze Box War of 2008? Apparently there has been a new battle added. All regular boxes have been removed and replaced with Breeze Boxes. I have held out and held out and held out. I went in and out of them and looked at her lots. Sigh...you know what I had to do?? Pee in the Breeze Box. *(*&%!#@ her!!!!!!
Friday Morning Update: We conceded defeat. We have all peed and pooed in the Breeze Box. We humbly acknowledge we did not win this war. Even Chase who held out for a full 24 hours gave in. Meowmy recommends the Breeze Box now. Sigh...
