I have been working on a photo shoot for the Tampa Bay History Center, and have come to the conclusion that I hate new palm trees. The city of Tampa had planted a thousand palms all around the museum with no green tops and had to deforest a state park to hold them up with 2x4s. OK maybe not a thousand, but I kid you not it had to be about two hundred and all where I needed to be to get the best photo. Here is a before and after of one of my nightmare shots where I had to take out all the 2x4s and put in palm tops.
By the time I was done with all the Photoshop work my hand was in a permanent shape of a claw for two days.
