Thanks to COVID-19 a whole lot of us have had to make an adjustment to working from home this year. Sure, it allows us to skip a commute and sleep in a little longer. Still, it's strange to roll out of bed and roll directly into the office.  I know that I'm not the only one who has found the transition awkward at times. I'm not complaining, because at least I still have a job. Here are my Noname Nerd answers to the questions about working at home that you have, but are afraid to ask.

Luckily, I had an easy option.  I just asked Chinling of www.chinlingphotography.com to help me out.  She's primarily a wedding photographer, but to say that she has an artistic eye really understates the talent that she brings even to product photography.  When we were setting up for one of her photoshoots she asked me what props I was going to bring. "Props?" I said...  Of course, it never occurred to me that some simple props really help people understand really important things, like the size of a product, but also provide cues on how they are supposed to use it and, most importantly, how they are supposed to feel about the product and even what type of people should be considering the product (for example check out the buffs that she photographed below with the PS4 and Xbox game controllers).

I am offering cotton masks for sale at the Noname Nerd with 100% of the sales going to the COVID-19 Response FundLet me be clear, I don't make any money from importing and selling these masks. These are meant to help raise money for the COVID-19 Response Fund only. My goal is to raise $10,000 for this fund. Hopefully, the masks will also put at least a few more masks out there to make a dent in the shortage that the US faces. They aren't the medical-grade masks, but they can help reduce virus spread. I would encourage you to buy one and give it away to someone in a vulnerable population or a healthcare worker. Or keep it for yourself and use it to help reduce the spread of the virus.
