No touch-ups

Shot throughout the afternoon through the evening at dusk, in varying light, due to cloud cast shadows, camera electronic component errors, and some with filters, UV or polarizing.

Boho Top was a gift from Pirate Pebbs.

Gazebo 03 Edit

Yes, I used Photoshop 6.0. Seriously, I did.

Gonna use CS2 next...

But, got some interesting color effects on this edit.

Gazebo 02 Edit

Kinda funny once I mess with the levels, and saturation... because it's totally different than the original which is SO dark!

Whitman's pond Gazebo 01

So funny/strange how what I look through the frames, and find the photos that I think look the best, then, I tweek the lighting in Photoshop and it turns out my eyes were closed!

But in the dark original frame, it doesn't look like my eyes are closed! And, yet, here you can see it!

But, I SWEAR to you, that is NOT a ink underskirt! It's purple! But, the camera sees it as pink!

I COULD tweek it to be more purple , but, it messes with the color scheme going on here... The outter circle skirt is a green skirt, made in India, that I bought in New Hope (PA) a number of years back with my friend "Drakenhart" (Hope).

photoshoot preview

I just got back from my photoshoot at Whitman's pond park, in Weymouth (MA/USA).

I did several experimental things with filters, n' loads of geeky things... But, I also did pirate cosplay & boho stuffs...

Like I said, I've been VERY sick this year, and even had emergency surgeries. I'm feeling better, mostly, now... I'm still not entirely heals, but, I did gain some weight... I'm not happy about it....

I'm at the point, now, where I can start to exercise. I've been swimming, doing yoga, and I started to get back into bellydance again (including last night).

My asthma is terrible, tho'... but, the yoga is helping...

I am also "fasting from FaceBook" for right now... NO, it's NOT a Ramadan thing... I'm NOT Islamic... but, peace be upon them anyways...

I have had a string of unlucky near-misses with this endeavor getting to Whitman's pond. Even today, a number of folks actually were chatty with me... which is unusual in MA... Then, of course the clouds blocked my light... I spent from about 3:30-7:30M there today.

So, I filled u my memory card on my camera. I'm frankly shocked the batteries lasted, since they usually DON'T.

But, I had some troubles with my camera once the humidity rolled in at dusk.... so, sometimes my camera wouldn't focus on the frames of ME, or became whitewashed, or TOO DARK.

It's a shame because the frames I LOVED of my poses are out of focus. :( I'm JUST a 1 woman show, so no tech crew with me.

So, this is my daughter, earlier this month, at Whitman's Pond, in the gazebo.

And, here she is inside it, shot from INSIDE it.

This is me inside the gazebo, TODAY.... but, from my smartphone...

Still "fasting from FB" n doing the (creative & 'being with nature') stuff I'd rather be doing! Here I am at Whitman's Pond Park in Weymouth, doing 6 or 7 kinds of experimental #DSLR #photography !!! I'm in a custom #boho outfit as part of a #Selfportrait

So, here I am, in a variation of a new #bohochic #Pirate #wench #costume. I made the #hat . so this is me in the #gazebo at Whitman's Pond Park in Weymouth MA. Check my blog for updates n photos from the #photoshoot Marshall Kandiß The #Pyrate #cosplay #c

Pirating at the Whitman's Pond! #Pirate #wench #Pyrate #girl #lady #woman #Bohemian #boho #bohochic #chic #fashion #makeup #cosplay

 So, you can see here, a number of the photos have some lighting issues. I have no idea why, because even tho' I used my UV filter (which tends to darken the frame/photo) I still got very whitewashed photos then other times fine, but out of focus.

Then, it would switch and become too dark with no logical rhyme nor reason.

Luckily, much of the problems could be fixed easily with Photoshop.... which I was experimenting with earlier...

Also, my hormones desided to make me go through the cycle period twice this month. :-/ so, I'm ultra bloated...

It was either NO photos, or at least try... so, I went for it... I already put it off every day this month...

Besides, I would rather be doing things outside then being aggravated by FB... Some days, I swear I hate my computer, n want nothing to do with it.

 The sun totally blocked by the clouds, screwing u my pond photoshoot... but, those clouds still gave enough glare to my eyes to make me squint!

Almost At 20K Views!

Wow! I just got home this evening from a photo shoot at Whitman's pond park (Weymouth MA/Greater Boston/South Shore) and I checked my stats on my blog!

Holy Seadogs! I'm getting close to 20,000 blog views!

I just started this thing this year. I've never seen anything get this many views this fast.... and, I've been using the internet since 1994! Sheesh!

Anyways, I am taking a break from FaceBook, because I'm so fed-up with all the closet racist remarks from folks whom have the gall to think they're not racist... I'm calling it "FaceBook fasting"...

I've also recently gotten a job offer, which I accepted,  but no word on when to start it yet...

Anyways, I have a preview coming up of some of the photography I did.

Yes, I did some pirate stuff, but I also did some experimental stuff with numerous filters at the lake.

You can watch/follow my OTHER (non-pirate) works on my photography blog.

You can also check out my Flickr gallery, which I also submit  publish to Yahoo Weather A for Android smartphones.

Making A Boho pirate hat

This thing took an incredible amount of work, and detailing, and problem solving... altho' it's rather simple stuff... like ULTRA simple, it just takes TIME and patience.

I need to get some better starch to iron the thing... cause the ruffles are too flimsy...

 Yeah, it's way out there, and eye catching.

Everyone wants to try it on, or borrow it!

So, do I look wickedly decedent yet bohemian yet? 

 Not the best, clearest photos from my smartphone... but, whatever...

 Some old bronze-ish yellow colored fabrics from my step-mother...
Cut into strips, sewn together, then, sewn ribbons on...
