The Perils of Using Maxwell in a Photo Shoot

I should probably leave this kind of thing to Jeffrey.

    Not only am I snickering at this kid, I have wasted HOW MUCH time on Jeffery’s photo site. :sigh: I wish I had events that needed photographs! (I liked you by the lions, btw.)

    Somehow the pictures are of ordinary people, not, like Photoshopped into some seeming, some semblance of beauty, but revealed, so that their own light shines. He’s GOOD.

    Thank you for the compliment on the picture! I think I frustrated Jeffrey that day, as I get all self-conscious when someone’s taking my picture and am terrible at following directions, but he was patient and kind to me, as he always is. And he does take AMAZING photos. I am so proud of him and how he’s grown and developed his craft. I’d really like to get him here to HPL to do some photos for us at some point, but that’s going to take some doing.

    When I first saw these pictures I was taken by surprise because he looks like an older version of Vinny.

    No, you were giving him the wrong direction. You should have said, “Look like you’re being swallowed by a giant M&M.” and “Create a 30-car pile-up.”

    So right. This is what I need to try next time.
