Untagging Facebook photos

Extreme tagging

Extreme tagging

I just went through Facebook and untagged a number of older photos. For those of you who aren’t familiar, “tagging” in Facebook allows you to highlight different people in a photo, so you can more easily search for them. For example, from this past Halloween, a picture of me and my roommates would be tagged as Rebecca, A, and P. So if you clicked on “Rebecca’s Pictures,” it’d show up, as it would for clicking on A or P’s pictures.

“Untagging” lets you remove yourself from pictures where you either aren’t actually present or (more commonly) where you don’t want people to be able to easily say, “Oh, look! It’s _____”

What did you do last night?

Photo shoot pictures!

By , September 20, 2009 8:11 pm

I’ll write about the experience later, and these are only the two the photographer sent over as a “how do these look?” but I’m so excited about how they came out! The first set, of me on the stairs, I think has some other good pictures that I’m looking though, I think the picture posted below may be the only good shot. (Not that I’m complaining!)

Enjoy!

Vacation photos!

By , September 2, 2009 9:38 pm

This post will be about my vacation and time back since, so feel free to ignore it if you’re not interested in any of that. Sorry for the not-amazing picture quality, but I took my little dinky digital camera rather than having to schlep my DSLR. ;)

Dyke Marched – Chicago Dyke March 2009

By , June 27, 2009 8:42 pm

Phew! I am exhausted! I got home about three hours ago from the Chicago Dyke March and promptly took a nap. But I did get some great photos while I was there, so I wanted to share ‘em. I haven’t used a WordPress gallery before, but I hope it’s self-explanatory. You can see more in-depth descriptions of the photos by clicking on them, and let me know if you run into any trouble.

New toys! A nice DSLR camera

By , October 26, 2008 8:37 pm

I always feel weird figuring out what I want for my birthday because I become plagued with indecision and too many options. This year my mom was good enough to give me a combined birthday/Chanukah financial gift going toward my hair removal, but I couldn’t figure out what to ask my dad for. Well, after our recent discussion, we were back at my apartment and talking about more mundane things, including the video camera I bought over the summer (which was funded in part by the artist’s stipend from the mentorship program I’m working on). At the time I was torn over a video camera and a still camera, and decided on the Sony CX12 because it can take solid – if not amazing – still pictures and serve well as a standard and high-def video camera. I’ve been happy with it on both accounts, and some of the pictures and video I’ve posted on this blog were taken with the CX12.

Well, I realized a nice still camera (or splitting the cost of a still camera, as I think it’s unfair to ask for things beyond whatever the general established history of gift costs) would be a perfect thing to ask for, and yesterday my dad and I went to a camera store and I came home with a shiney new camera.

Some pics from a recent photo shoot I did of the piece I’m working on for the mentorship. (Thanks EU for help taking pictures!) (No, not the European Union…)
