I Need Models

I’m still practicing changing settings on my camera to achieve different effects based on the wedding photography book I’m reading.  I started practicing with the geranium.  I kind of like this.


I really wanted models though.  Snickers was okay to start with.

But when I asked him to move so I could try settings in different light, we didn’t get far.

So I tried Jules.

I had the opposite problem with her.  I couldn’t get her to sit still long enough to take a picture much less try adjustments.

When she’s looking at something in a picture, she probably went bounding after it as soon as I snapped one shot.  Sadly, she’s becoming quite adept at catching butterflies.

I tried my mom, but she didn’t smile about it.  Don’t tell her I’m sharing this.


I guess I’ll keep looking for models.  I need to keep practicing.

The Good. The Random. The Fun.

It’s zucchini season.   My last three meals have included zucchini in them, and I made my favorite zucchini brownies today.  I’m loving this zucchini season.

Today I got a new book in the mail, and I’m really enjoying it.  It’s helping me prepare for my nephew’s wedding in two weeks.  Yikes!  That’s not very far away.


I’m still practicing and learning with my new camera.  I’m using whatever I can find to practice on.  I’m pretending the dead roses are the back of the bride’s dress, trying to capture every little detail.

Hopefully, I’ll have it all figured out by then (but I doubt it).

Edited.  If you want the recipe for zucchini brownies, it is HERE.

Scavenger Hunt

It’s been a while since I participated in Ashley’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday.  It’s hard to do those scavenger hunts with a gimpy foot.  I’ve done my best for this week’s prompts: eyes, upside down, from behind, sunshine, and cup.

Eyes:  There are a lot of eyes around here.  I’m sharing Bob, the Chinese goose, and Muffin (with her buck Billy eating with her).

Upside Down:  Jules has decided she should be an outside kitty.  I’ve been letting her out while I’m home during the day.  I want her to learn where to go and that she needs to stay away from the road.  She’s rolling everywhere out there and really enjoying herself.

From behind:  The sun is shining from behind the tree.  I thought it was a beautiful sight.  It’s also about as far as I’ve made it out to pasture on foot.

Sunshine:  There’s plenty of sunshine today!

Cup:  This one was pretty straightforward.  Since my initial teacup a couple of months ago when I wanted to photograph the chicks in one, my sister has presented me with several pretty cups.  This is the latest.  I really like it because it reminds me of my grandmother’s china when I was a kid.


I’m also sharing with Mosaic Monday, and Macro Monday II.
