My 10 Seconds....

...of fame, that is. Here is my television debut in all it's glory. Blah, blah, blah. It's more comical than exciting. Whoever spliced and merged the footage got it all wrong for me. I don't actually use Snapfish...ever. If I ever print my photos (which is really once in a blue moon), I use Costco online, which just happens to be powered by Snapfish. It's a twisted world, working in television. I think I'll quit my acting career and go back to photography. :) Oh well, it was fun. And that old adage about the camera adding 10 lbs? It's not true. It added 20 lbs to my already apple-shaped face. I don't think it helped that Noe, the happy camera man, was so zoomed in on me. Well, enough of my griping. You may have to turn up your volume. I don't think I had the TV volume up loud enough. Didn't want to wake the kiddos.

Liz!
You looked great in your cmaera debut!! Too bad you are now snapfish's rep if you don't even use them:)

Mike & Lauren said...

At least you got some free advertising for Elizabeth Agle Photography! Your face didn't look heavy at all, I don't know what you're talking about! :)

You do NOT look 20lbs bigger...you look quite HOT actually. Love the hair and sassy glasses. Seems like the news always gets some of their facts wrong, but you looked great, and your pics looked great too.

Hurray! You're famous!! I'm so lucky I knew you way back when. And no, those are real raindrops, not spray bottle ones. Cool, huh? That was right outside our window. I'm dying to know which book you started with and what you think of it. We are home with a sick mommy and a sad, sleepy baby from shots yesterday :( Give me a call...

Lisa said...

Way to go my famous friend! I thought it turned out really good. They showed more about you than everyone else they interviewed. It should be good for business. They zoomed in on Liz Agle Photography there at the end.

Melissa said...

That is awesome! That is more on tv that I'll ever be! And NO WAY did you look 20 pounds- you looked beautiful! and VERY professional! Way to go.

How cool is that! You did a nice job. :) I was just in media training a few weeks ago and was instructed on how to be interviewed by the press. It was so much fun. Also, my really good friend's husband is the founder and CEO of smugmug.

I doubt that you would know Anita. She didn't go to our school and was in another stake. She is great!

Amy D. Hall said...

Oh- I fixed the videos so you can see them now.

Brooklet said...

So cool! I thought you looked fab! So has it resulted in any new business?

Mom and Dad said...

Ha, I've never seen your desk look so tidy. I would clean mine up too if tv crews were coming.

You looked really good, not heavy at all. I didn't think they showed you enough.

Barbara & Morris said...

I loved that..
Got to see your great backyard..and now when I think of you at the computer I know what it looks like..(I am such a visual learner!!!)
This spot on the tube will really help "Elizabeth Agle Photography":)
Fondly, B.
eeeek!..I just read this back and I sound like a "stalker"..sorry!

Liz said...

Ha ha ha! Not a stalker, Barbara! So funny. Actually, I understand better than some, perhaps, since I, too, am a visual learner. In order to understand concepts, I'm constantly asking people to paint pictures for me in my head. So, visualize away. :)

Mom, you bet I cleaned up before they came! :) Did you see your mamiforma?

Lindsey said...

I love this! You came across as a very informed photographer. Love it!

Freckles said...

How Cool is that! So good for business!! You looked great, I agree though, it was spliced together a little weird. haha But they showed you working and your blog page, so that is great!! Good job!

Sara said...

Wow, you are awesome!! And I'm related to you!! I think you looked great on camera- now I'm seriously pondering you as an actress...except I think you'd get bored with that superficial world. You are calm and normal in front of the camera, and your face looks beautiful! Not 20 extra lbs. So cool!

Don and Amy Bennion said...

That is so cool! How did that TV spot come about for you? I ditto what everyone else said--no way you looked heavier and you did look really great. How fun!
