what inquiring minds need to know {the long version}

ok, for the next few days i'll just be answering some of the questions. keep em coming though, contest ends thursday at midnight.

1: what kind of camera do you use?

a canon digital 20D. {went with canon since i already owned a couple of very expensive lenses...} i LOVE it. the quality is amazing although the auto settings keep things a bit dark. i'll fix that by using manual and overexposing one-two stops. also, the built-in flash creates a yellow tint on indoor photos. BUT alas, i have photoshop and can fix almost anything. so i'm lazy, shoot auto and then fix later...

so no, jen, all those modifications, including black and white were made in photoshop. i create the glow by duplicating the image layer and blurring it, then setting the layer mode to overlay or soft light. so there you have it. all my photoshop secrets.

2: how many guys total did you date before meeting said hubby?

disqualified. kidding. you would have gotten a larger toll had you asked how many i kissed {jamie, adam, derek, ricky, oh the list goes on and on}. in all i didn't actually DATE that many. three in high school, one before hubby, two-three inbetween hubby. and then hubby. oh, and there was this one horrible first date between hubby breaking up with me and asking me to marry him. that's another story involving drooling, drinking and honey mustard. none of those on my part.

3: did you leave PCC or get booted?

if anyone doesn't know what this school entails, look it up, then you'll understand. pensacola christian college. or pensacola concentration camp as we used to lovingly call it. skirts to the knees, nobody out of bed after 11pm and no dating off campus, ever. yeah, scary. so the answer is no. i didn't get kicked out. shocker i know, but i managed to stay under the radar. i even went to a movie with a boy! egads. for that alone i could have been booted 3 times over. {not to mention the time i parked my car in the sammy's strip club lot by accident} but i chose to leave on my own. i think deep down i was really just scared to host my own art exhibit my senior year.

that's it for today! crazycrazy busy but i'll have a shop update tomorrow with a bunch of handy holders...so cute. i may have to keep one or two for myself, and maybe one for a prize....

Glad to hear you didn't get caught or booted! Somehow I kept under the radar too, and I won't even mention how many times I should have been kicked out! Maybe it would be easier to count the days I shouldn't have been kicked out. There might be a few. And then I was one of the CRAZY ones to stay and get a masters too! Only because Danny was staying, and, well, the things you do for love.

hey, i never did anything to deserve getting k/o'd! i wish i had, though. something about me and ben hippe in the american eagle dressing room would suffice. alas...

I remember Ben Hippe! What is your name morninglory kitsch? Do I know you from PCC? I was Carly Miner until I married Danny Covey-thus I am now Carly Covey. Ah, PCC. My hubby said it best: it's like looking back at an orphanage where you were abused. Too true.
