365 Project - Day 12

Day 12

This image has been in my head for a few days now, and I, with the help of my awesome wife Perla, got it! Unfortunately, Sara is already sleeping, so I edited the image in Pixlr, a cool online Photoshop like image editing browser interface. For basic editing is works wonders letting you edit layers, blending modes, styles, filters and much more. If you are in a pinch and cannot get to Lightroom or Photoshop, this application will do.

Ok here's the geeky stuff, originally, I was using a speedlite [flash] set at 1/64 power zoomed to 105mm to give a video light look, a technique that I learned on the DWF Blog and at one point was very satisfied with the outcome. But while I was manually focusing one last time and Perla was holding a small LED light above the cookie, she suggested I see how that looked as an image. It's looked Amazing! The Light was too nice, plus we were already excited because when we opened the fortune cookie 'Succeed' was the first words we saw...

So, For Day 12,whether you're a photographer, sales person, selling soap, small business owner, CEO, Wife, Husband, Student, or that guy scrubbing toilets for minimum wage, This Post is for You! Succeed and apparently 13,15,22 are your lucky numbers. Make everyday your 100% best, you will be noticed, hard work never goes unnoticed. Feel like getting a little pat on the back? Post a comment about something you accomplished this week. Let the world know...or at least those following our journey.
