Billy Boyd Panel Part 1
Actually, if you wish, you can get straight into the whole (160 pic) gallery once you click on the first pic. Or, you can just enjoy the silly ones I post. Looks like it will take at least 3 posts to cover the ones worth showing - *G*. For the best results, check out msil's transcript of Billy's talk (http://users.livejournal.com/_silver_star_/3573.html). And silverstar? As I said before, feel free to snag any photos that work with your transcript - I'd be thrilled, and it would help them make a lot more sense. They're all in the order they were taken, if that helps at all.

Thanks. I'm still at that stage where I look at them and think "OMGOMG - they're great"; and look at them 10 minutes later and say "OMGOMG - they're horrible" - *L*! They're not his handsomest, but between his hands and his face he's very expressive - of course!

*nods knowingly*

EXACTLY what I was thinking!

On the other hand, I know somebody who got to paw him pretty good during his photo op, so she should know, one way or another - right? *looks innocent*

*L*!

Aw, come on! You had your other hand on his shoulder! Do you mean to tell me you did NOT rub his back at any time during that session? Answer carefully now... you're on the witness stand! *G*

Thank you so much! You're right - they turned out great; I esp. like 7, 9, 19, and 24. Andy looks like some kind of burglar with his shaved head and knit cap, that silly man. By the way, I do work on mine in Adobe Photoshop afterwards.

Typically I will:

-crop the photo to the size and look that I want;
-lighten or darken it, if it's under- or over-exposed;
-adjust the "color cast" (such as reducing the orange color of the faces; sometimes if you lighten a dark photo it intensifies the color and you have to de-saturate it a bit), and
-use a sharpening filter, such as "unsharp mask", at anywhere from 50% to 100%
-sometimes remove a distracting element (such as an EXIT sign, or bright light) using a clone stamp

That's why it takes me a while to post my photos. I like to edit them and work on them a bit first.

Thanks again for showing them to me!

You're welcome.

Yes, I didn't want you to get the wrong idea and think that I never have to "fix" my photos.

Also, because of the low light at concerts, I sometimes purposely shoot at a low exposure, just to try to get a sharper photo, and then go back and lighten it. It won't be great, but at least it will be a usable photo.

If you're lucky, your program (even if it's not Photoshop, which is expensive) will do almost all of what I said above, and they're fun to play with - good luck! *S*

Aww...that was fantastic, Ros! I love the expressiveness of his face, and the fact that he just loves interacting with an audience that way. He is so relaxed and fun.

I think he's gotten better and better at it. I get the impression he treats it like an improve stage performance - *L*!

What we didn't know ahead of time (and I think it made a HUGE difference) is that he came to L.A. a MONTH ahead of time this time, so there was no tiredness or jetlag to overcome. I assume he did so to either show the baby off to friends, or so Ali and he could take a break in a nice warm place, or so that he could look into movie opportunities while he was there - or all three!

His profile in number 8 is very, very nice. That last one is probably my favorite. I realize I'm looking ahead a wee bit, but Billy is going to make the most adorable little old man EVAH!

*L*!!! Are you going to try to convince him to come to your nursing home when he's old and decrepit? "We want Billy! We want Billy!" Cute, old and Scottish - that WOULD be adorable!
