I went to the Ash Wednesday service tonight and the second I walked in the door, Jerri snagged me and said “I need you to run sound,” and quickly showed me which channels controlled the mics, guitar and video, then she went off to direct the music. I don’t how long it’s been since I’ve gone to an Ash Wednesday service, but I decided to try some self portraits with the ash cross on my forehead when I got home. I find self portraits are challenging, especially in the mirror without having the camera show. Since I couldn’t see my composition or focus, I just took my chances. These two came out the best, although, I can’t seem to smile and press the shutter at the same time. It’s like the corners of my mouth and my fingers are connected, because I start with a smile, but moving my finger down to press on the shutter, pulls the corners of my mouth down.
