Getting Ready For Red Nose Day!

Red Nose Day Becky

May 26 is Red Nose Day, an annual event designed to help kids living in poverty.  Click on the image for more details.

I won’t kid you.  I first saw the add for this event in Walgreens and thought to myself what a fun photo op it would be, before ever really realizing that for just $1, I’d also be contributing to a good cause.  In 2014, I learned about this rather late and all the red noses at Walgreens had been bought up.  So I bought a red nose from Amazon.com and donated to the Red Nose Day fund.  Last year (2015), I forgot about it because I was dealing with all of the things an Executrix deals with upon the death of my mother.  This year (2016), while visiting a Walgreens in Yakima Washington back in April, I bought the “official” red nose.

In case you were wondering, this photo was taken in my ersatz home “studio” (aka livingroom), with a Canon 5DSR, a Canon 24-70mm f2.8 lens at the 70mm focal length, lights and the white umbrellas.  Settings were ISO 250, f6.3, shutter 1/20.  I had to do a little de-saturation of the reds and pinks in the image, and I used a little noise reduction as well.  Both hands held cameras, so I placed the remote shutter release on the floor used my toe to hold down the button.
