OK, the colors have been rectified, and thanks to springdew, I've got a mug shot for the corner of my page. Cool! Credit for the image itself goes to jeweldevil, who is someone that I don't think I know, but has apparently taken a picture of a place that had me in it. The picture itself is a damned good one, excellent composition and rhythm. Too bad it's got that poofy galoofus in the middle of it. If I knew anything about the technical side of photography, I'd be curious as to what exposure and fstop settings he used to get the image from the low-light env of Respects, and I might even inquire as to what manner of software was used for it's editing. Too bad I don't know enough to ask about that sort of thing :) I hope he doesn't mind that I used it, but then again, he didn't ask to take it, so I'm guessing that fair's fair. Just to be sure, though, I'll ask him if minds. Also, I managed to get my 'lil paws on a journal client, Semagic by name. At this rate, I'll start actually making use of my journal for journaling sometime this week, heh.

I'd be happy to answer all your questions. First to last: I only have to ask permission if I intend to use the picture for commercial gain, though I am NOT quite sure if that includes posting it on my website gallery, which IS public, but ISN'T (yet) commercial. I already had your name, to ask you to sign a model form, if I started making money through the site of the picture.

Also. The week before last I brought prints of the pictures but you weren't there, and last week you were, but I hadn't brough the pics.

You'd probably recognize me. We've never spoken but I am a regular.

On the pic. While I didn't purposefully make you a focal point originally, you're "pose" was evocative enough that I centered in on you in the finishing process. That meant a lot of cropping and some serious loss of resolution so that picture would never be suitable for enlarging beyond a standard print. It was taken with a cheapo 2megapixel digital (something I am kinda proud of, considering the quality I cheated and coaxed out of it.) and the "digital developing" was done using photoshop.

I'm glad you asked permission and just simply told me about it. A guy likes to know people are appreciating his work!

Than-q for letting me use your picture. :)

Just for the record, I didn't mean to infer that you should have asked permission to take the picture. I was just kinda going for the whole balance thing, if that makes any sense...

+==+ You'd probably recognize me. We've never spoken but I am a regular.
Geeze, now I'm all curious about who you are ... cool. Maybe the mystery will come to an end this thursday...

+==+ The week before last I brought prints of the pictures but you weren't there
I would've been there, but I was road-tripping around the SE US. Went to Atlanta, Norfolk, and DC. Then I had a birthday and slept for like 3 days. I recognize some of the images on your site from when I lived there. What a coinkidink!

+==+ A guy likes to know people are appreciating his work!
I definitely do admire your photographs. From what admittedly little I've seen of your work, you've got a good eye, and much-better-than-fair sense of composition.
