Good Morning Everybody,
I can believe it! I really can't believe it!!! Joe McNally, my friend, my Photoshop World compadre, my off camera flash buddy - saying I stole his Tri-Grip "whatjamacallit". Here is the link to all his false accusations right here.
Man, I remember asking him if I could borrow his one of his portable reflectors for my Photoshop World `Pre-Con. He said, "Sure, no problem." I thanked my Ol' buddy and left smiling and grateful. Boy, were those feelings misplaced with what's playing out over at his blog.
Heck, I couldn't even use that Tri-Grip "whatjamacallit". It was so coated with baby oil from his last shoot that when I popped it open in the back of church near the votive candles, the whole place almost went up in flames. The church office called the fire department and, with their help, we were able to put out the flames with my new OSHA approved flame retardant Zumbrellas.
You know how it works - you light a candle, you make a donation. We took up a class donation just to cover all the newly lit candles - I'm talking hundreds of dollars - baby oil and smoke was everywhere!
Anyway, I wanted to get to the bottom of the story so I hired myself a private detective - Snoop, The News Hound. Snoop and I go back a lot of years. Snoop helped me back in the old days when I did investigative reporting for my kids PTA. I gave Snoop a call and asked if he could help out. He said, "Woof, no problem." He asked me to give him some time to get the facts straight.
Here is Snoop's take on the investigation so far on his blog right here.
I know Snoop is thorough and undaunted in sniffing out the facts. I'll have an update tomorrow. I promise all of you, our trusted DigitalProTalk readers, that we will get to the bottom of these baseless allegations!!!
Technique Tuesday to follow later today - I'm just so appalled by the entire affair;~) -David
