So this evening, for a few minutes, assuming that I am not too drunk to work the phone (Hey, I'm still at Trinocon...) I will be on the Operation BSU talkcast again. (Details and linkies all posted about here.)

I will probably talk about artistic burnout, and/or webcomics and/or all those annoying gits who call me some really foul things because I have a subscription-archive webcomic. Or possibly I will just rant drunkenly for fifteen or twenty minutes until someone takes the phone away from me. Really, the options are wide open!

Apparently I have a serious kilt fetish.

I did not know this before.

It's these little moments of self-discovery that make life worthwhile...

Okay.

Gang, this is an honest plea for help/advice/something.

I photograph like a retarded vampire chipmunk. I got some lovely tips today on photographing better from a friend, but this doesn't do much good when it's only me and a cheap camera that I can't even plug into my damn machine. ("Okay...okay...figure out the time delay...set it...run around the front...crap, I remember that it was chin up and three quarter view of the face but look towards the camera and--shit--was it three quarter view of the hips and torso, or straight on, or--*CLICK*--DAMNIT!")

I am at a point in my life and self-esteem where a good photo of me might be NICE. I mean, I'm lookin' pretty damn good at the moment, and at the very least, I would like to immortalize it for posterity, since frankly, I suspect this is the best I've ever looked in my entire life.

Yes, it's vanity. I am okay with that.

Any advice on how the heck to get some good shots? I mean, I don't want to go blow scads of money being professionally photographed, which really would be vanity, and completely unjustifiable, but it would be nice to have SOMETHING.
