My Hubs got me a speed light (Nikon SB-300) for my birthday. I was so excited even though I had no idea how to use it correctly. So off to YouTube I went. I watched a few different videos by a few different channels like: Sean Tucker, Tony and Chelsea; The Photography Academy and etc.
THIS just upped my Love for photography❣📸😁
It’s amazing to have the ability to warm up a scene by just redirecting some light.
Before the speed light:
I love the pictures above but here’s some with the speed light at different angles.
I am so ridiculously proud of my little crochet group. We have a few dozen members but only about 10 of us that crochet.
This year has been so challenging for so many of us, but we managed to do 60 lapghans (split between our domestic abuse shelter, senior orphans and Moffitt Cancer center; baby hats for Shaken Baby syndrome Oklahoma; hats, scarves, clothing, food and other items for our Senior Orphans.
Well I’ve found another fun thing to do, can you imagine? If you’ve read my last post about Rose from “Titanic” you’ll understand that I have many interests.
So I’ve been a big fan of Ansel Adams, who is a famous photographer and for Christmas i received a pretty fancy camera. Pictures to follow…
But first, this is the first installment of this adventure which started early the friday morning after Christmas. We headed to the airport a bit later than origannally planned. We ended up taking a tour of long term parking (The Hubs was driving) only to end up in short term parking. 😁 Then we took the new tram from the parking area which took us to the right place. But we needed to check our bags which meant we needed to go down stairs (anxiety is starting to mount, we are not late but…), there was a Disney sized conga line so we hightailed it outside to curb service to check our bags. Of course this is where we realized we should have dropped our bags first lol before taking the tour of the airport parking areas. Lol so, we made it to our gate after getting gropped…flight takes off at 6am then we had a little layover and made our final destination by 1pm.
So we are in Western Michigan and there is snow on the ground. Suddenly i am a kid again, i havent seen snow since 1980…so we headed to a craftbrewery for some libations. Now if you’ve followed my Harley Vacay posts you know this is the usual for us, but this is the first time we’ve come in winter. I am loving it! Even though this girl has about 8 layers on, which isnt fun when you have a hot flash! Let me tell you, having a hot flash while wearing this many layers gives you a real honest to God incite on a Turkey in a basting bag at Thanksgiving! 🤣🤣🤣
In a 3 day period i have taken over 500 pictures with my new camera and i am in Love with the Night Vision setting. Please let me know what you think, heck maybe you have some suggestions….I have a crochet project to work on now.
I hope you all have had a Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year to come❣
