News. Photography. All serious stuff. sheesh
I set out to do a selfie today. This is not what I had planned when I left the house. It just happened. I was only a few yards away from a heavily traveled highway. The toilet - totally disgusting! I used wide painters tape to cover the edge and lip of the toilet. Man, am I glad I had that in my truck! Oh…and hand sanitizer! Lots of it!
I actually got this in 2 tries. There was nothing wrong with the first one, but I didn't like that my knees were covered. But of course, that meant that this version needed some Photoshop work to uhhh...hide some details. Personal details. The final image is a 3 shot HDR. I copy/pasted a couple parts of one of the single images to get the colors I wanted on the jacket and myself and the newspaper. I really wanted to convey a comical feel.
Now, if this makes you spit something on to your monitor. Good.
Did you get a chuckle? Would you ever “expose” yourself like this?
