How ADORABLE am I??!!

Ha!

I really hate Minimal Editing.

I could have made this SO MUCH better!



fish-eye lens

Oh. My. WORD.


SO many shots... to get this one.

I don't like the background in so much focus... but my fish-eye doesn't care. It shoots what it wants.

It's hard to selfie yourself with your nose up against the lens...

Hold on... I'll go find out how many shots I took for this one challenge.

Wait! Don't go!

I'll be right back.



EIGHT HUNDRED, SEVENTY-FOUR shots!


I told you it was difficult.

You didn't believe me.

I started off with a dog... moved on to selfies... got frustrated... then went to Hubby who was tired and not even through with his work for the day so not very cooperative... then back to me.

In the hall with no background... outside with the sky... inside again (every time checking the shots on my computer... hoping that I got "it"...)

It's also amazingly hard to get light on your eyes with the fisheye and camera an inch from your nose.

Then, I got some with my eyes lit... but there was "stuff" decorating the background on the furniture, and photographs on the wall... etc.

*sigh*

So, I removed the "stuff" and started again.

My camera is on the window that appears to be over my head.


Here. I'm finished.

Take it or leave it.

At least the lens makes me look slender.

Well... except for my nose.


I wish my nose were in focus... but... it's beyond the capability of my very cheap fish eye lens.

Congratulations on the HM, though . . .
