New Author Photo - August 2010

New author photo:

David Barr Kirtley Author Photo August 2010

Today it occurred to me that I could probably use my Macbook's built-in camera to record myself performing my stories. I tested it out, then started experimenting with different backdrops (bookshelves, blank wall, etc.). I dragged over my lamp to try out some dramatic lighting for reading a horror story. I accidentally ended up with this lighting here, which I thought looked kind of cool, so I snapped a few pics using Photo Booth, and I liked this one enough to throw it up on my site as my new author photo. Some people were giving me crap recently because my author photo was from way back in 2007, so I hope you're all happy now.
