Artsy Rose taken in 2009 with a Canon Point and Shoot. The Powershot A590 IS to be exact. Low tech Image Stabilizer. 8 crappy megapixels. And AA two batteries to power the camera. I still have the camera somewhere. It still works. I think. I tried to give it to somebody else but it was too antiquated for her. Why lug a bulky P & S when one can use the smart phone?
Even at this time, I was being creative. I think one doesn't need fancy equipment and software to do decent artwork. I must have edited this on an early version Photoshop Elements. Most it was just playing around with layers and modes. No pro editing like dodge and burn and curves. I didn't know how to do those at that time. But I think the edit is still pretty decent.
Somewhere in a Japanese restaurant. What was the occasion? Don't recall. I suppose Rose and I just wanted to live our lives.
