So you could probably say I’m cheating a little since I took this photo on Day 3 however I still did the editing process on Day 4 and I’m posting it today which is actually Day 5!
Anyway, today’s portrait is Elder Brown, another missionary that is currently serving in our congregation. Again I don’t know his first name so like Elder Smiddy Smith I have again applied some alliteration and have nicknamed him Bobby. I took the photo at night under fluorescent lighting so the conditions were so different to what I am used to. A lot of the photos I took had a fuzzy green tinge across them (you may be able to notice it on some of the photos where I wasn’t able to completely remove it) so I am keen to figure out what causes that and how to avoid it as I am sure there will be many other instances where I’ll need to photograph under fluorescent light. Anyone out there have any ideas or know exactly what the issue is?
Bobby is from the south-side… of Utah hahaha, from a place called Cedar City close to St George, Utah and a pretty close to the awesome Mt Zion National Park and the Grand Canyon. My wife and I are heading there in August for work and hope to find some time to check out the awesome sights in those locations.
Again, for those who aren’t aware of what a missionary is or their purpose – they are young men and women who volunteer to give up 18 months – 2 years of their lives to preach, teach and serve, often in a community far different from the one in which they normally live. Having served for 2 years myself, the skills, abilities and experience I gained from forgetting myself and serving others was immeasurable and has continued to bless my life since completing my service.
