Bio Pics for my Hubby

My husband and some of his friends are starting a podcast on gaming. They will be posting this on their website, and are posting bios and pictures of themselves. So, I had a photo shoot with my hubby. He wanted a pic that showed his "producer" role, including his affinity for music.

Here are some pictures I ended up with. He will be using the one of him at the computer, which is a good pick. The others are cool pictures, but not appropriate for a bio picture.

I thought I'd share them, because I like them.

More Poco and Dimi

Well, I'm sorry to do this to you all, but very soon you are going to be deathly ill from all these puppy photos I'm taking and upload. It can not be helped. I love dogs. However, I promise, once the summer comes, I'll at least have DIFFERENT dogs up. For now you are stuck with Dimi and Poco. I realize that my opinion of their cuteness is biased. But look at them... :)

I hope to have something a little different up soon. I've been working on some pictures of... my husband! lol. These however were done for his new project, website and details to be released shortly.

For now, its still dogs!

My cute new model!

Well, I'm back from Ottawa, and my husband and I have brought home our new bundle of joy! He is SO cute and very well behaved. We're so happy.

Now I have yet another model!!! Plus, taking pictures of dogs is probably my all-time favourite. I just need to hone my skills. Oh, I can't wait for the dog park this spring!!!

Totally Stressed Out

Well everyone... I apologize for being away so long.

I had my first class of Photography IV. The first assignment is due on the second last class, and I've been working on it all week. And I have nothing to show for it. I'm pulling my hair out, losing sleep... it's terrible. Hopefully I'll get a breakthrough at some point.

The assignment is to take a picture of a white box, lighting it so that the exposure of each side of the box (top, front, side) are one stop different from the next. The front should be perfectly exposed, the top overexposed by 1 stop and the side under exposed by 1 stop. We are to do all of this with light. I have been using my neighbours' lamp, because I don't own one, and she is away this week. But she gets back tomorrow, and I have nothing, so for the next few days, I'm not even going to think about this assignment. Instead I will focus on...

...Poco... the new pup. We're picking him up on Sunday! I can't wait. And while I'm at it, I think I'll also pick up a lamp... something I can use in my assignment... I don't even want to admit how many shots I've taken, and how many times I moved the light... oh, it's all too pathetic!

I can tell you one thing. If I'm ever able to pull this white box assignment off... I will be on TOP of the world! If I can't pull it off... well... then I've failed the class and wasted $400....

Well, dog-obsessed as we are, my husband and I are adding another poochie to our family. De minimis maximus will have a new little brother Jan 25th. Over the holidays we were lucky enough to go and meet and pick out the little fellow.

We chose the dark one. Why?
1) Because he was very sweet and had a good temperament.
2) Because he is dark and will contrast nicely with Dimi.

Here are a few pictures I took at that meeting. We are really looking forward to bringing him home. It does require a trip to Ottawa, but its okay, because it means we can visit family and friends. Particularly, some friends who have just had a little baby girl. I have seen pictures, and I have to say... she is one of the cutest little girls I have seen in a very long time. I hope they let me take some pictures of her cute littleness.

For now, the cuteness I will share is of the puppy variety.

More From Christmas

My decorations may be down, but my spirits are still high! And as such, I will share more pictures from my Christmas this year. These pictures will reflect the people side. Dad carving a turkey, my nephew playing with a new toy, which was later used by the adults (funny how that happens).

Today I am off to my last Christmas dinner. It should be a good time.

Happy New Year

Well, to all of you: Happy New Year! I wish you all the best in 2009!

Lucky me was sick over new year's... yup that's right. But regardless I had a great time staying in with my husband and poochie.

I thought I would share some Christmas pictures I took over the holiday while visiting my family. I have to admit... I was lazy and definitely did not follow the rules I had set out for myself. I did however find some time to take pictures before the family came over and I did take a few pictures of the food being prepared... sort of! :) Its so hard. You're hanging out, taking time to relax enjoying conversation with the people around you, and then BAM! You realize you haven't even taken one photo... below are some photos I took.

I had a really great time using my new tripod. I set it up so that it would go really low. I am glad that my camera supports live view because there were times I was unable to look through the viewfinder, because it was so low and on a weird angle. I absolutely love the new tripod! I can't wait to use it at the dog park this summer!
