After a couple of years of trying to find someone to shoot with me, I've fallen into the jackpot. A few of the baristas at a little coffee hut that I've been frequenting for years have decided that they wanted a portfolio to take with them to college, in case they have a chance to do any modeling. They're all friends, they were all cheerleaders, and they all begged me to help them (be still my beating heart, and wipe that silly grin off my face.)
So, being the nice guy that I am, I said yes. I had no idea what I was in for. The last 2 weeks they have been tag teaming me. They have differnt days off, different schedules, and 1 will shoot till it's time to go work, get a break, and the one coming off shift is ready to go.
Now, I have over 2200 images in RAW format waiting to be edited. "O.K.", I say to myself," you better put in some quality time on the computer and start processing."
When I inform the girls of this, they are besidethemselves."Oh, no, we've got an idea fo a shoot along the Coastal Trail, down on the mudflats that you just HAVE to shoot for us!"
Excuse me, but I HAVE to shoot a couple of girls rolling around in the mud? (drum roll, please) "Weelllll, you are going to owe me BIG time, but I'll do it."
Helllllloooo, but last time I checked, you have to pay admission in most parts of the country for this. And I get to shoot this?
So, the nest morning, we meet up about noon, and hike down the trail to a good location. For the next hour and a half, I was hard put to keep up with them. Needless to say, I had the time of my life.
I now have a ton of images to process, but I'll enclose our "end of the shoot" wrap shot. More to come in my port in the "mudflats" album as I get them processed.

Sorry, It's 3 in the morning, and I haven't figured out how to post a pic here, yet. Just click on the image for a better view of the image, and I'll try to fix it later.

Well, it's been a long day, and I'm finally back. A lesson in humility. I start bragging here, log off, and go finish processing a bunch of RAW files before I finally turn in, and CRACK.....Whirring noise like jet engine powering down,followed by smoke coming from my computer. I was trying to do too many things at once and fried it. Got some sleep, got up and start pulling pieces from various old computers in the garage, and got one up and running that will handle e-mail and browsing.
Now I have to build a computer real quick so that I can process all those images. Teach me to brag.

I just hope you haven't lost your images. That would be a tragedy of the first order.

come to think of it, excuse me while I start a backup of my image server...

Fotunately, they are all backed up onto an external drive in the RAW format. Now I just need computer that can handle processing them all.
