Pushing 80

Pushing 80

It’s pushing 80 today.  I mowed the lawn, but first I had to replace a blade.  I remember how excited I was when I bought this tractor.  It has turned out to be a piece of junk.  I will NEVER purchase another Cub Cadet product… and I will never buy from Blazey’s again.

After replacing the blade, I began to mow.  About 1/2 through it, a stick caused the belt to jump off the pulley.  (Yes, that’s another problem with the design of this thing.  It would be so simple to put guides and guards around the belt assembly to prevent this.  At least I know what to look for with my next lawn tractor.  You always learn with the first.)

Poser Poses

I’ve learned how to save poses in Poser.  I started a collection of my own poser poses.  Most of the time spent creating a 3D creation is spent posing your character.  Many of these poses can be reused now that I know how to save them.

Who knows… I might even sell a Poser pose pack.

Posing in Poser is quite difficult to get it right.  When someone’s body is not positioned naturally, we notice.  We notice things like, you can’t bend your fingers certain ways, we hold our hands in certain positions that feel natural, etc.  That’s why it is so important for me to save these poses.

Getting Ready for Workshop 2013

I spent most of the day getting ready for teaching a workshop next week.  The workshop is 4 days and consists of lighting, posing, retouching and presentation of images.  I will be teaching three students.  That’s a nice size because we can pair up for working on the assignments and I can rotate through the group as we do.

Elizabethe and I had dinner with our friend Louise last night.  She moved to Clyde a while back.  (She was in Lyons.)  We had a nice visit and she told us of her future plans and ambitions.

I spent the afternoon doing an engagement sessions for a couple.  They are getting married next October, but wanted their announcement photos taken this October.  It was a fun shoot and we did it all at the park down by the lock.
