Deadlines?

Deadline


Dog Blog Post #370: Straight from the Daily Shoot...

What's the first thing you think about when you see the word "Deadline". Make a photograph of illustrating that thought.

Yeah. Deadlines. Exactly what do dogs and deadlines have to do with one another?

Did I hear someone in the back say "Nothing"?

And they would be correct!

Moving on...

Let's see - I've been playing with Aperture 3. So far I'm impressed about everything except the fact there is no good way to make a visible watermark. Really? 200+ new features and they couldn't figure out how to write text over the image somewhere?

This means that I need to choose between using the nifty "Fickr" button that automagically uploads the picture to my flickr account, complete with any keywords I've put on it

-or-

Export to jpeg, open with Preview, and use THAT simple (but highly effective) text tool to write my watermark.

(sigh)

Really???

Next step is to take a look at the new (at least to me) PowerPoint and recreate my training template all over again. Oh well, I guess it needed updating anyway. :)

And for the non-dog picture, we have "Sunset"...

Your enthusiasm over the deadline assignment is still cracking me up! Next time, I'll just print a big "Deadline" in a no circle and have her hold that up! At least it's over!

And wouldn't you know, we've had bright blue skies every day this week (and I even got a few gorgeous pictures of them one day), but today it's dangerously hot and the sky is all washed out! Grrr!

The sunset photo is very interesting, shot through fennel? Great light!
