More Halloween Surprises
It has been a few days since our Halloween party and I haven't found the time to get my pictures printed. Yes, I still enjoy sitting not by a computer screen, but on a couch, and flipping through a photo album. And yes, I still take my pictures in to be printed the old-fashioned way, as there is no home photo printer than can compare to the excellence of our local Black's.
However, this isn't one of the pictures I'll be printing. But it's still an interesting find on my camera.
During our 15th annual Halloween party, Duffman handed off his camera to anyone willing to grab it. So my first surprise was a number of shots that I didn't actually take, including mechanical Frankenstein hand copiously groping Rock-star derriere.
Suprise number two was that most of the pictures were out of focus. Or so it seemed. The pictures actually were in focus. But the giant, greasy fingerprints on the lens were interferring. It was almost like having a free soft-focus filter for my camera. Neat.
Surprise number three was a video of "Duffman... thrusting in the direction of the guy with the chicken!" That video will never be seen again.
Finally, surprise four was a series of pictures of the Vampire (you may remember him as Baseball Player Zombie from last year's bash). I took the pictures under the blacklight in the bathroom. But since I don't practice blacklight photography on a regular basis, I had no idea how to capture a proper picture.
Looking at the five pitch-black images on my camera, I decided to fiddle with them in photoshop. After adjusting the levels, the ultra-grainy image of the Vampire suddenly appeared - avec green hair! Which was the entire reason we were taking the pictures in the first place.
I'm glad those were the only surprises on my camera. It could have been much worse.
