54/365 – I hate this photo.

This photo is a perfect example of how things don’t always work out. I had this great idea in mind – even brought the extra props and lights – but I forgot my tripod. Ugh. So I tried to balance the camera on our picnic basket so I could still try and do the shoot. Let’s just say there’s a reason for tripods. The angle just didn’t quite work – and I doubt the time of day was ideal either. This photo took a lot of processing to make it look vaguely like what I wanted. I think I’ll go back and reshoot this one in the future, but for now, this is what I’ve got.

    You’re beeing too hard on yourself, this is quite nice. I’ve actually been planning a similar shot myself, just have to find the time and make my wife model for me :p

    • You’re right. I’m being a bit to hard on myself and in hindsight “hate” is too strong a word to use.
      But I guess I’m disappointed because of a simple mistake and the amount of “repair” I had to do to get it to even look this way.
      I suppose the best way is to look at this failed photo as a test shoot for a better version.
