Pictures from OVFF
I finally got through the Photoshop step and the upload-to-Livejournal step on the pictures I want to share from OVFF. I hoped to write a more thoughtful narrative about these pictures, but I don't have any more time tonight and if I don't do it tonight I don't think it will get done at all. So, behind the cut, you get to see the LJ photo site's idea of how to turn the captions from my LJ gallery into a journal entry. It's not a real con report, but it's what I can manage at the moment and there are some pix I hope you'll enjoy.

Kathleen Sloan and her hat

Kathleen's expression just makes this picture. It is so perfect for the character of the fish in The Cat In The Hat.

I printed 120-odd using the "just copy the raw image file to a CD and take it to Wal-mart" method, but getting these 28 onto the web took hours.

oh man, it looks like a load of fun.

yeah, webbifying pics takes quite some time for me too; though i've built some photoshop actions to help speed it up. i still think i take way better pictures now with the digicam than i did before, simply because i no longer have to think about development cost, and that freedom to be completely spontaneous, and to shoot several exposures successively when i am not sure has improved my technical skills as well.

I have tons to learn about Photoshop, but I was already getting into a better workflow with it with this bunch of pictures.

Your pictures of OVFF

(Link)
HI Phil - a friend sent me a link to your pictures, because I'm in 'em. I'm the unidentified woman holding Spot. This was my first trip to OVFF, and I had a whale of a time. Or sea-serpent, or possibly a leviathan. I think I had that stupid grin on my face throughout the convention, and for many days afterward. Thanks!
P.S. I'm Sue Posteraro, from Toronto, and I've been hanging out lately with the filkers from FKO.

Thanks for the info; I've updated my own records, and I might, with amazing luck, even remember your name when I see you at FKO. (I am planning to be there. I assume you are too.)

I'll be there - I look forward to meeting you. You take good pictures - the hair-raising one is priceless, and so is Kathleen in her hat!
