So with at least two new books (and possibly one more) coming out this year, plus Salt Lake Comic Con coming up in September, I decided that it was time to get some updated headshots. And by “updated,” I mean “better than my face cropped out of family portraits or the pics I had my son snap with our crummy camera last summer.”
My friend Angela Ellsworth, who has previous done our family portrait and Alex and Nika’s engagement pictures, gave me a swell deal. I made the deal sweeter for her by requiring her to do none of the retouching — just send me the unvarnished photos. I know how I really look, not the lying lens!
So here are two I’ve touched up for various publicity needs.
I didn’t realize until I pulled these up in Photoshop that, for some reason, I unconsciously turn my left side toward the camera; out of thirty-five snaps, six have me square with the camera and only two put my right side forward; the other twenty-seven are from my left. I guess I’m not just left-handed, I’m really really left-handed.
