First official publicity photo

I use the term “publicity” loosely. 🙂

I went with several chapter mates yesterday to have professional photos taken for the RWA announcements. The photographer, Chris Malacarne, did a great job.

Afterwards, I spent about an hour cleaning up my picture before sending it off. I’m quite proud! I was tempted to post a “before and after” to show off my photoshopping skills, but decided against it. (No one needs to see those bags under my eyes.)

You know those ANTM photos are touched up too, right? 😉

    I love it! It looks just like you and so professional!

    Hopefully that’s the one that flashes up on the big screen 🙂

    Thanks Bria!
    Little sis made a comment about me not having to get one of those “fuzzed out”, blurry author pictures.

    Very nice. I should have done it myself, but I hate taking pictures. Too many bad ones in school. Yay! You look wonderful.

    Oh! I love it. And I’m sure there wasn’t all that much to photoshop. Absolutely beautiful.

    Great photo! I have a fear of cameras too; I’m either blinking or half blinking in them. Or somehow someone gets a profile of me, and there’s my lovely eastern European hooked shaped nose 😛

    I see that time at Zentropy paid off. Great photo of you.
