Shimmer of Light

I got out for bit after work yesterday to take a walk and make some pictures.  It was a beautiful evening with bright sunshine and a blue sky filled with billowy clouds but it was no surprise I ended up in the woods as they just seem almost magical somehow and are one of my favorite places to be.  Be sure to click the images for a larger view.  You'll appreciate them much more that way.

As I commented at the end of the last post on lighting, I'm back with what I tried this week and hopefully the results are better.  Be sure to click for larger pictures.

Shooting with a Compact Camera

This past Sunday afternoon was a beautiful day so I asked Mindy if she would like to go for a walk.  I wanted to take her to a place she's not been to and watched to see if she'd grab her camera before heading out.  Alas, she did not.  So I did not, which is very rare.  Well, when I speak of 'the camera' it refers to the DSLR.  However, my compact camera was in the car so I consoled myself that it would have to do.

Vegetarian Chili
Mindy has a blog called It All Begins With Dirt  in which she posts about vegetarian meals for Meatless Monday's.  When I'm around she'll usually enlist my help for taking photos of the process as well as the finished meal.  We're both trying to hone our skills regarding this whole process and lightening is a big part of it.
