The Subject: "The Daily Chuck" Heather B. Armstrong (aka Dooce) the blogger who began all blogs. Published two books, in 2005 revenue from ads on her site supported her family, honored by Forbes magazine in 2009 as one of the Top 30 Most Influential Women in Media. Beneath it all, she takes kick a** pictures, and no one can touch her.
The Contender: Code hacker/blog designer/mommy by day, blogger by night. Too tired to take a night class, too young to throw in the towel. Cynthia was looking for a challenge to take her photography to a better level, and in the Smokey/Chuck Project, she found it. Risking her marriage, her sanity, and her cat's well being she has signed on for a deranged assignment.
365 days. Roughly 2 pictures of Chuck a week. One determined bad photographer. One descent camera. One fat lazy cat.
How far will it go? We can only wait, and wait, and wait...
There you have it...I checked in on Dooce this morning and I saw the headline Don't Try This at Home. What? Don't tell me what to do:P
Next thing I knew, Little Man and I were bopping down to Walgreen's to buy tea lamps.
If Chuck can do it...Smokey can do it (unless it involves moving:/)
After today, I resolved I had bitten off more than I can chew...but, I read 40 pages of the Nikon owners manual today, and learned a lot about my camera. Judging by the crappy picture I took (seriously, Holy bad picture Batman), it can only go up from here...right?*
On a side note...Heather, can I call you Heather? Do you have a light source coming out of your arse or something? Maybe you live in Heaven? Your lighting is AMAZING! Seriously...how can I take a good picture when I live in a cave?
*Smokey was not harmed during today's photo activity...Chuck, no more open flames...m'kay?
