Challenge: Leap Day: In The Style Of: Natsumi Hayashi (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: 2012
Camera: Nikon D700
Lens: Nikon AF-S Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8D IF-ED
Location: Los Angeles, CA

Date Uploaded: Mar 4, 2012

So, I may give up my personal trainer and just do these self-portraits.

Since I've done leaping selfies before, I know how hard they are to do convincingly. This was even tougher because I had props which had to also look like they were floating. I had on another outfit for the first 200 jumps, but after looking at them (and fortunately, before putting away the camera), realized that there was simply not enough "coverage" and I was giving away all sorts of personal secrets....

This dress was also floaty but not as colorful, but it worked just fine AND provided coverage... Then, a lot more jumping and voila. Yes, I decided to leave my filthy feet, well, filthy...

convert from raw
crop and straighten
CEP tonal contrast
CEP glamour glow
brightness/contrast
d&b
layer for painting
save for web

I'm actually rather pleased with this image, and think it finished where it should. I knew the dirty feet were going to get noticed but never figured it would be so amusing. At least I know I can fit in somewhere, right Mae...?
