What does  “bacteria-free” and “pistachios” have to do with this photo?

Some days, things are difficult.
Some days, things are impossible.

Some days, last for weeks.

Why? That’s an easy question for me to answer– expectation combined with a never ending “todo” list.  It’s a poisonous personality trait that I don’t think I will ever shake.  How do you survive in an environment where you always force yourself to be busier AND better than before.  My imagination shines in this environment but my sanity dies a little.  Apparently that’s called being an “artist.”  I heard recently, on some overly-intelligent television program, that our planet entertains an organism that can survive in the most radioactive areas of a nuclear power plant (called Deinococcus radiodurans.)

It’s a bacteria, so you just know that it’s nasty.

An unusually warm and foggy day in December.  For Canada that's not normal.  Don't worry though of course, Global Warming can't really exist-- that would be a silly notion (sarcasm)

As far as I’m concerned that monster is my To-Do list.

I can’t shake it– I can’t dodge it,  so instead I have escapes.

I am sure you do as well.  I recognize I am not a unicorn– we all struggle from these challenges.  I’m curious how other people survive them.  Aside from being on stage there is only one thing that can free me– the firm grip of my Nikon D800.  Digital art is probably the one true thing that keeps me sane (ish) and makes me happy.  I grasp onto it like every frame is my last pixel.  Nothing else comes close.  Reading and movies silence that nagging in short spurts. So does Crown Royal and pistachios (both of which make me fat and are avoided.)

Those moments of relief; those are the gems of life that keep me going.  This photo is my best shot at creating that feeling– bacteria-free.

Peace and love,

Since the forest photo provided a burst of light in the middle I opted to have a Westcott 48" Softbox behind a white reflector with a Westcott Strip Softbox  above.  There is also an 256 LED Panel directly behind me to provide more light in the appropriate places.

I used my good friend Adobe CC to do some pretty terrible extractions from the background.  I wasn't too concerned because I knew in the real world this light would cause some leaking around the edges, which I painted on thanks to my Wacom tablet and a little trial and error.
