I’m sitting at my 30″ monitor, retouching and designing what feels like an endless train of client orders, and my eyes start to get verrrrry tired and blurry. (How that’s even possible with a screen the size of a WALL, I don’t even know). So I reluctantly put on my glasses (one more admittance of this inevitable aging process). Since I’m now equipped with designer, magnifying eye balls – I should be good to go right? Wrong. Suddenly the screen is even harder to see. I’m squinting, practically pressing my nose to the cold glass, and wanting to pull my hair out. Enter my fiance, The Hot Dreadman. And the exchange goes like this:
THE HOT DREADMAN: “What are you doing?”
ME: “I’m retouching and I’m going crazy trying to see this screen!!!” (Sigh)
THE HOT DREADMAN: Well, why are you wearing your SUNGLASSES?
So photographers, Lesson #1 is simple: Sunglasses make things unnecessarily difficult.
Check back for more actual lessons in all things photography (exposure, manual settings, natural and strobe lighting, retouching, etc). Premiering this Fall.
