Here’s the last few days of 365 photos – all of which have been up on flickr.
My daughter, Makayla, has this Wall-E toy that she just loves. So I though I would take a photo of it that she could admire… and that I could frame and put in her new room when we move. It was quite late tonight when Chris got in from work anyway… so I thought I would go ahead and post this as my day 18 photo. Hope you enjoy!
Camera Info: 1/250 second, f/1.8, 50mm, ISO=160 – hand held (shot with my nifty 50 f/1.8 lens).
Flash: SB800 at 1/64 power @28mm with my diy straw grid snoot on manfroto nano stand about 4 feet high, pointed down on Wall-E toy. Triggered with PWplusII. The red dot is a laser pointer I had handy. Shot during the late afternoon on a pretty cloudy day.
For any of you who follow me on twitter or facebook, you know that yesterday my coffee maker went kaputt! I have no idea why… but it didn’t want to make me my precious morning nectar!
This morning I woke up and remembered that I had meant to go to pick up a new maker last night, but forgot – so today was day 2 with no coffee! UGH!
I can’t go without my morning coffee!!!
So after I fed the girls their breakfast, I loaded them up in the car and headed up to the local Super Wal-Mart to pick up a new one. I found this beauty for a whopping $17.00 !!! ((I did look for a french press, but apparently they don’t carry them at Wal-Mart, though I’ve seen them at Target before)).
Tonight I thought I would do something funny – and something I’ve not done before either. Make a video with a music track that actually made sense when watching it all together. Now I know that if I want to do more videos, I need to pick up a copy of Final Cut Pro… because using iMovie was very frustrating and limiting.
Anyhow…. I hope you enjoy my little funny video! It made me giggle when I watched it completed! =)
All the photos in the video are shot with natural lighting, so no strobist info today. I used my nifty 50mm f/1.8 @ 1.8 and ISOs from 800-1200 based on the shot.

So today was exhausting. Had to get up early this morning and make sure the house was presentable despite the fact that half our stuff is in boxes and whatnot because of the impending move. Why? Well… the people that handle renting the current house out have decided that even though we’re still living here, they want to show the house. They have done this twice and I am not a fan. But I had to get up early this morning and clean because they called late yesterday telling me they were coming early today.
They arrived early.
Related note: We have a door in the back that we cannot open. Not because it won’t open… but because it won’t close once opened. These people decided to open it and after they left I had the realtor come back and close it back for me. It took him a bit of effort, but he got it closed and locked up.
So the rest of the day I spent packing up more stuff. I wish I didn’t have to do this alone… I’m exhausted at the end of the day! And by the time Chris gets home (after his nearly 2 hour commute) it’s late enough that I don’t want to go out to do my 365. I can’t say enough how much I’m looking forward to our move! We’ll be like 10 minutes from Chris’ work…. so he’ll actually be home at a reasonable hour – which means my 365 shots can head back in the direction I wanted them to go.
On that note – I give you, DINNER! Chicken Nachos. Yum. =)
Camera info in the metadata… available light. =)
Last night Chris and I watched Pixar short films playing on one of the Disney channels. No, the girls weren’t up. And we watched it anyway. =) I looked for it again today but didn’t see it – thinking that maybe Makayla would enjoy watching it. Anywho… it stuck with me today… and the thought occurred to me that my desk lamp is pretty similar to the pixar lamp. So todays 365 is inspired by that. Also, I would like to share with you my favorite Pixar short EVER! =)
Camera Info: 1/160 second, f/1.8, 50mm, ISO=200 – hand held (shot with my nifty 50 f/1.8 lens).
Flash: SB800 at 1/128 power @35mm 5 feet high, bounced off ceiling. Triggered with PWplusII.
So that catches you up to today…. which I’ll post a little bit later. Hope you enjoyed! =)
and stay tuned for more photos tonight!
