Monday’s Halloween, Crafty, Yummy & Funny Linkity

Filed under: Linkity — Kristi at 2:25 pm on Monday, October 25, 2010


I’m very late in posting today because I had an early morning photoshoot. As luck would have it, it was very dark and overcast this morning and now the light in the living room is FANTASTIC! When I don’t have a model available :-(

I did come to one conclusion - I need better trained dogs, LOL! Above is an “outtake” from this morning. Of course the poor lighting conditions required a 1/15 sec shutter speed (that is very slow and requires a tripod) doesn’t help with a couple hyper dogs. Probably 80% of the shots with either Brandon or Emma look like a streak of black or brown.





  • The Panopticon made me laugh again this week with his public service announcement.
  • The difference between Facebook and Twitter gave me a great chuckle too. (Thanks Chris!)


This was as close as we got to a usable shot with a dog in it… *sigh*

You should have called me back over when the light improved. I think I ticked off about 10 things on my checklist…now I’m stalled with no motivation.

this post made me giggle… the search for perfect lighting, the need for a model and counting on good doggie behaviour. that’s a lot to ask for! the socks look lovely though!

The look on his/her face is priceless. I love pumpkin but hate the smell of molasses. The socks are very pretty.

The dog is adorable! Isn’t it always the case with light…the availability of good light is always inversely proportional to the importance of the photoshoot and the presence of the model…I believe it’s the fourth law of photography! Looks like you did A-ok with the challenge!! :)

[…] This shot was taken the same day as the puppy outtakes. We did it none too soon as by that afternoon all those gorgeous leaves had blown to the next county! […]
