Fun Picture Trick

Last Sunday, while in Mephis on Beale Street I had a random thought: How fun would it be to have a picture of everyone looking down while the sky appeared behind us!?

And then it hit me.

Self: Kate, does your camera have a timer?
Kate: Yeah, why?

Then we gathered in a huddle and placed the camera on the ground.
The above picture was our first attempt.

Micah (to the left, sporting the ever so classy "PISS" shirt) doctored the photo a bit using Photoshop. He took the original color photo and laid a black and white copy on top. He then erased portions of the copied black and white to reveal the blue sky of the original. I believe it took him about 30 seconds.

Clockwise from Micah: Russ, Amanda, Jeff, Me (+800 chins), January, Kate, and Mitch.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
