I don't have a decent picture to post today, so I've cheated with an old portrait that I reworked.
But I have an excuse. No, honest. I thought I would have a go at video editing using a camcorder bolted to the front of my car and what I understand to be the simplest video editing program on the market: iMovie. I set my camcorder to record stills and video and, lost in the hideous complexities of two different video-editing programs, I let the computer delete the camera's contents before checking. Rookie mistake, so here’s a picture of a naked woman.
This and all the other silly mistakes, long moments of total bafflement and, I confess, some irritation have taught me one important lesson: I may think I know my way around stills photography, but as far as video is concerned I am a complete dweeb.
It doesn't help matters that I — like many men, I suspect — consider manuals to be read only to confirm what I already know, not actually to learn
