Ain’t Technology Grand
Technology can be so cool. I love my Canon T3i digital SLR camera, but that is a more common “toy”.
What about software that does neat stuff? Like photo slide show software that takes photos from that T3i and adds special effects automatically so you are not stuck with some old boring style slide show. Now that is neat.
Or how about software that takes your head shot and places you on a different body? I will never forget when a co-worker returned from Vegas with an 8×10 of her head on a burlesque dancer’s body. That was probably 8 or 9 years ago and that technology was awesome to us. They got the skin shade just right. It looked so real.
Now with Photoshop, or similar, you can do the same thing. So … I took an old photo of myself and used a service at http://romancenovelyourself.com/ to make a book cover. The colour is not perfect but I could easily fix that by using a better original photo. (click on the image to see a larger version, to better appreciate that muscular/toned body)
Do I fit the genre?
