Day 371 of 365 More.

I’m still in that slow "what did I get myself into" phase of this second year of self-portraits. Just not inspired. Hopefully that will pass soon.

Called the job I wanted today. The good news is that they still haven’t made a choice so I’m not out of the running. The bad news is that they still haven’t offered me the job yet either. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Spent the day working on some photos (more beautiful naked women go there and make me famous and playing PS3 football. As much as I need money, I need a job just to get me out of the house during the day. I feel stir crazy a lot, and depressed from lack of human contact.

On a good note, I did go out to dinner with friends, since one friend of mine is in from out of town. I did take my camera and I guess I could have taken a picture there, but I was so tired that I didn’t even bother. Really have to get out of this funk soon.

    Good luck with that job, I’ll keep mine crossed for ya. And if editing photos of THREE naked women won’t get you out of your funk, I don’t know if you can be helped. ;o)

    @Sick Little Monkey: heh… I mean, don’t get me wrong… its certainly better than be stuck at home, bored, without model pics to edit. And thanks.

    You know I’m always pulling for you. I hope this is the one, because I KNOW the funk you’re in! Yeah, an old friend of mine – but you know that. Anyway, about this photo… you’re gonna have to help me figure out how to set this up. Can I do this now that I have my nifty umbrella light? Cause this is my favorite kind of pic and I can’t seem to pull it off.

    ps. all that said – I really, really like this!

    @lrayholly: you can, but it’ll be harder with only one light. You need to pour a lot of light on the background so it overexposes and then use the photoshop dodge tool on anything that doesn’t.

    Ugh, I know just what you mean. Sometimes I don’t have enough work to keep me busy, working from home, and I ache for humans to eat.

    I mean, talk to.

    good luck with the job!

    I actually like this one a lot. I love these white wall, slightly high key all body shots 😉

    Seen in my contacts’ photos. (?)

    @jessi.: mmm… humans… good with ketchup.

    Fingers crossed for you, Mav!

    I was amazed you weren’t going to take even a day or two off before starting the second year, but I’m betting you have enough creativity to keep this going. 🙂

    @sadandbeautiful (Sarah): thanks. And I can’t take a day off for two reasons. 1) given how I feel about it right now, I’d probably never start again. And 2) if I did start again, I know I’d get to day 135 of the second year and I’d be kicking myself for not going straight through so i could call it day 500. My neurotic brain just works that way.

    a) good luck on the funk
    b) even better luck on the job (that should help remove the funk)
    c) this photo is COOL!!
    d) i HAD to takea day+ off…i’m obsessive compulsive, but this was a break that i didn’t even realize how much i needed til i took it…and hopefully i don’t find that i’m as neurotic as you and kick myself around day 135 :=)

    @pi c’s: thanks. And I don’t know that it would bother me, but I don’t want to take that chance.
