    Aw. Thanks. So do you. Although I have this aunt-like desire to tidy up your hair. Cool shot, though - your photographer friend has talent.

    :lol: I'm not entirely sure how I turned out so orange. I'm generally pretty pale...I guess dark bar+camera flash=orange skin for Lori.

    It looks almost as though the flash didn't go off or was simply totally inadequate for the low light - or maybe the camera was adusted for the light behind you. It looks like a photo taken with the available light, such as it is - you get odd colors with most kinds of artificial light if you don't use a flash. Fluorescent lights will usually give you yellow or sepia tones, for example, but some will give a strong blue color. It's very strange.

    I'd do it but I don't want to send everyone's hormones racing.

    Thank you! But no, thanks, aunty, it's supposed to look like that. :p

    But maybe you could tell Praetor to put on a less vicious look on his photo. :lol:

    I will pass that compliment along. :)

    You do pretty well in the looks department, so I wouldn't be worried about it if I were you. :bolian:

    Oh, he absolutely does. Somehow I just don't believe he is as badass as he looks there. Or should I say, as badass as he's trying to look. :p

    Aww, thanks. You know, my threads (and ideas) usually don't really get much attention. Hence I included that disclaimer in case I would be ignored. Turns out now that it wasn't really necessary. That's another reason why I'm so happy with the way this whole thing is going. :)

    Ha, I'd forgotten about that!

    Man, I used to have a Playgirl with David Duchovny on the cover, but there wasn't actually any full frontal. :mad:

    Actually, now I'm wondering if it's in storage at my mom's. I hope she doesn't go through my stuff.

    I was thinking more along the lines of Planet of the Grapes.
    Makes a note to change Goji's avatar later.

    Oh, and thanks for this explanation! I don't really know anything at all about photography.

    You're welcome. Trying to get a camera to show what your eyes see reeeeeeally makes you appreciate your eyes!

    Edit: BTW, JimCasy...you look SO much like my little sister - particularly your cute little nose!

    ok I used an old badly lit photo of me & played around with the colors on PS. Gives an idea without being too clear...
    or it will just turn you blind. :p
