I felt that it was time to update the About page, and since I don’t have a photographer around with a beautiful DSLR camera, I took a selfie on the back deck and edited it in Photoshop.
Actually, I took this photo about a year ago using my iPhone 4s. Nothing special really, so I wanted to make it look presentable. I did my best, though I can see room for improvement… And I can see the substantial benefits in taking photos with a high quality camera in the first place.
In a perfect scenario, I would have a photographer, go to the park, take 300 photos of the family, and from them identify a photo that I would like to use for this site. But that opportunity hasn’t arisen yet.
On the About page itself, you can see more of the background that I edited in. On the far right, there is some park sign that I will photoshop out later. It annoys me, now with further consideration.
