general / where’s my picture?

People often ask me, “where’s my picture???”, only to be greeted with an indefinite answer. I like to take pictures. Way more often than I have time to post-process them. I’m also not that great at managing my multiple sources of photos, hence the major delay in “what I ate” posts. I post-process all pictures that are not coming out of my Blackberry… and it takes time!! And I hate when people pressure me for pictures. Some people can be (borderline) rude about it and it’s unacceptable behavior, even if I am family or a close friend. A thank you also goes a long way :)

Example. While I would love for these pancakes (made and styled by Talida Bakes) to look fabulous straight out of the camera, it needs some touching up. Here’s a before and after. I currently use Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3.

Before

After

Multiple the work here by 1000’s of pictures… and it brings me to the backlog I have today!
