As a family, we have a tendency to wait until the last minute for most things. My oldest son, wanted Valentine’s Day cards with him hanging off a cliff. Somehow we didn’t get that done and it was suddenly tonight at about 7:00 PM.
So, I had him hang off one of the stairs and shot it from above. No flash and crappy lighting but a decent enough shot for what we needed. Five minutes later and we had a cliff view thanks to Google. Another 10 minutes of Photoshop between the two of us and we were able to push the finished shot straight to Walmart for printing.1
After I got everyone to bed, I was able to pick up 35 copies.2
I don’t want to make any sweeping generalizations, I just thought it was pretty impressive that we can do things like that in so little time, with so little effort.
