I just realised I completely forgot to post the final results so click on the thumbnails to open the albums (in game on the left and posed portraits on the right). I didn't have the time or space to set up a proper corner for doing this so the portraits are a bit naff but the outside ones worked quite well.
The lights in the main room were awful (mixed incandescent and fluroescent) and sometimes impossible to adjust properly without getting even more noise...
Seems to be a recurring theme at the moment. Yesterday, I visited the Humphreys to take photos of autumn_storm and her puppies followed by home-cooked dinner; today I visited robinbloke to take photos of his and my Pyrates outfits by Silk and Steel Designs and then we cooked some Granny Adams and Italian Stallion (best name for sausages ever) bangers and mash for lunch.
I was really wiped out afterwards so didn't stay for gaming fun which was a good thing as I was so tired that I missed my usual turn-off from the A14. o_O
( Here be Pyrates )
Many thanks to robinbloke for hosting and taking the photos of me.
