What a really nice day it was. It was 70 degrees and sunny with a slight breeze. Just right. I was cruising down the highway on my way back home, enjoying being able to have all four windows and the sunroof open. Ten minutes later however I was cursing myself for not taking any Claritin today, but that’s more of a side note. It was a nice day is what I’m trying to say.

So nice in fact that even my critique went well. Actually, it went more than just “well” and the class seemed to be in agreement that what I had was in fact a portfolio-worthy piece. I don’t know if I’d go that far. I certainly like it, don’t get me wrong, but I wasn’t beside myself with awe when I first saw the negatives. Maybe I should be, I dunno. You’ll have to see for yourself. I’m going to upload it to Deskmod and maybe make a wallpaper out of it. We’ll have to see. I’ll also be posting it on DT2 for those of you (Chip) who know what that is.

I was also excited to get my “Photographing People: Portraits, Fashion & Glamor” book yesterday. I’m not using it as a how-to-guide as it seems to be written in the style of, but more of a resource book. A “try this and see if you like it” sort of thing. It’s basically a big reference book for different types of lighting setups, something that I’m usually good at but could always need inspiration for.

Anyway, that’s about it. Lauren’s downtown picking up Sara and then they’re coming back and I think we’re having Chicken Salad for dinner. That would be tasty.

Matt out.
