So, when we last left our heroine (moi), Author Photo Shoot Day was approaching. It came and it went...well! I have so much admiration for photographer Lisa Hancock, who did some really nice work (I think so, at least!).
You've seen some of that work with my new profile picture right here on the blog (if you haven't noticed it yet, take a look on the right sidebar). But here's the deal: The photo shoot package includes one complimentary "retouching," which means I can ask Lisa to retouch one of the 200+ shots at no extra cost. Presumably, that's the shot I'll use for the book jacket (and maybe elsewhere, though it's kind of fun to have a choice of photos to post as a blog profile, Twitter thumbnail, etc.).
I've received some good advice from people close to me, but now I'd like to hear what YOU have to say. Here are a few more photos for you to peruse. Which do you suggest I ask Lisa to retouch and use for Quiet Americans? (Or do you think I should go with the one I'm currently using for my blog profile?) Thanks for chiming in--I look forward to your comments!
