THE LAST SUPPER
Saturday, July 25, 2009
First off, Mazal Tov to me, I made it to day 100. I am fond of telling others that know about my 365, that I was ready to quit at day 14, but something said, keep going, and here I am, day 100 with a mere 265 left to go.
In case you haven't guessed by now, this is the last supper, or at least my rendition of it (Oh, and just in case you cannot tell, all of those "people" are me). I cannot put in to words how long this actually took to finish..oh wait, yes I can. I awoke at 6:30am, not because I was ready to start on this, but rather I just annoyingly woke up and decided, since I'm awake, might as well start in on this.
This project literally involved me moving my furniture, taking down the pictures on the walls, adjusting the lighting in the room, attempting to take down my chandelier (thank goodness I nixed that idea and went for a deep crop instead), fifteen props, 97 pictures, and three excrutiating hours to edit. Please don't let the subject matter fool you, I cursed every five minutes because I couldn't get the placement right, my hands were wrong, there was hair in my face (Jesus!), standing behind "myself" made it difficult to guage where I was going to be if the next photo was supposed to be in front of myself...and then...and then...the editing. Don't even get me started, well I've already started...every little detail had to be delicately moved and adjusted, and cropped, and pasted...Ahhh! Nightmare. And my practical grey hair was rather hideous so I hideously drew over it. Hate that part of the pic. I'm sorry, but it will be a very very cold day in hell before I try anything like this again. I will need another 100 photos to recover from this.
Oh, and did I mention Flickr has not let me upload this picture for 5 hours. I got a ton of error messages. At first I thought it was my computer, but usually if my computer is down my cable is down because its the same company, but no. It was like after all this work, the very least that I wanted to do was post the darn thing...but no, that would have been the easy thing.
So day 100, I am still thoroughly pissed and there is no one to blame for trying to do this but myself but at the end of the day, I am very proud to have made it to 100 and I hope my future pics will do some justice to this crazy photography world.
