Jammin With The Web Cam

Ok, so I admit... I have a WebCam.

Now before y'all go and freak out... I do NOT record myself on it doing dirty, disgusting things to publicize on the World Wide Web or anything... Just wanna get that cleared up.

Here is the #1 reason I love the webcam... Cuz I can "video chat"!!!

Video Chat is better than regular IM Chat, because on regular chat I get tired typing (and there are times I have a LOT to say!). Plus, for some reason, my keyboard lags when I'm on google chat or facebook chat. But with the webcam... you just TALK!

Video Chat is better than PHONE Calls, because I don't have to hold the teensy-weensy tiny little cell phone in the crook of my neck and give myself a stiff neck the next morning. Plus, I can SEE the person I am talking to, and it doesn't use up my MINUTES!!! YAY!!! Also, I can multi-task... video chat & BLOG at the same time!!! hahaha!

That being said, there are only a few people I ever video chat with... like 1, maybe 2 tops.

Anyway... back to the point of the post. My webcam has some funky settings... thought I'd play around with 'em.



What I look like when I study.


Me... getting ready to play with the settings on the web cam, tee hee!


Cotton Candy effect


EWW!!! "Blockhead" effect! No Thanks!!!


"I see a Ghost" effect




Fish eye view... geesh! glad I'm not a fish!

Neonized me! Yay!

50's movie reel



80's Music Video

"Tiles"




Whew! Back to Normal!

All right...enough goofing around... back to homework!

I like the one that makes you look like you are in an A-Ha "Take on Me" video.

Very neat. I just was talking to my boys about getting a web cam, anything I want they think is stupid though. I think it is a great idea for family living out of state. I really don't know much about them, can't you talk online with family members? The blockhead is funny! I have not updated my blog lately, kindof boring around here. I am spending to much time on facebook too. That picture you posted of the girl on facebook reminds me of myself lately. I do find the time to check on your blog and really enjoy it.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Those effects are awesome. I don't think I can do the web cam chat thing. I don't come out as well as you do in photographs. I'm scary.

Do you Skype? That completely saved my sanity when Steve was in Afghanistan.

What program do you use for the effects? I use skype with Microsoft Lifecam, but I want to be able to do the neon and cotton candy effect you used.
