So, I decided to do a Video Diary of my experiences from start to finish, starting with getting my hair done at the salon, then the photoshoot and photos afterwards. I had the works done: highlights, lowlights, cut, style and was there for 2 1/2 hours. Shelley is the best ever and made me look gorgeous! Go see her at Slingblades! So afterwards, I came home had some lunch, and starting getting my stuff together. (That is a chore in itself!) I wasted 20 min searching for my the trigger remote and finally found it at the bottom of my camera bag. (Who would have new. LOL) I used 4 costumes this time, which is the most I have ever done. However 2 of them were just of costumes I am selling and need to photograph, so those were quick and painless. I wore my Red Bella, which I have never photographed, only for veil photos. The other costume was a Red Tapestry and coin costume I made a couple years ago. About half way through the photos for the Bella, the battery for my video camera stopped, so I was only able to video tape the beginning, but I did add some final images. (They were edited in Photoshop CS5 using various actions for artistic enhancement. The photoshoot lasted about 1 1/2 hours.
