I too have done this many times before, but, for the first time, I have got a decorator to do it for me. The years have caught up with me!My *groan* refers to the activity you have before you, not to the photo.
I've done this so often and even enjoyed it, but now I don't like it any more.
That's why I often focus on the base or feet of skinny subjects (when I don't forget). But I like the image, too.
And I thought it's a mid-price Oly problem. This has happened to me as well from time to time.
