This is what I do to calm down, be happier.

Too Kool For School
Exposure: 1/160
Aperture: f/9.0
Focal Length: 40mm/60mm
Exposure Bias: 0

I find balance when I'm editing photos. It is my meditation and goes a long way to calming me down when my mind won't relent.

Taken yesterday at Vilas Zoo. Edited in GIMP which was an interesting experience.

It works in a pinch for most of what I do with my edits. I don't hate it but I'm faster in Photoshop.

PSP9? Photoshop 9?

You want to edit my photos? I have a second batch from the research facility that have been sadly neglected for a month, at least. :f

Sure, but I charge $150 an hour; plus, you don't get to question my artistic choices! Hooray!

Heh; i was just being a jerk. Editing is, sadly, my least favorite part; if i had a way to see a lot of them in a large size at once, star-trek hologram-display stylee, it would be more enjoyable.

Apple Aperture has that feature... er minus the hologram. Allows for multi-photo previews and batch application of edits far better than Photoshop allows.

:p

If you don't want photos of me with my mouth open, then tell me you are taking a photo of me before you take it!

Yeah... that's not going to happen.

(Who said I didn't want your mouth open?)

When I read gimp, photo-editing software is not my first thought.

My GIMP is well endowed. With technology. Huge technology.
