Now don't get too scared...


Happy Halloween everybody! Five pumpkins might be overkill to some people, but not us. Gettin' in the spirit, as always. Be sure to

Hey, this is mildly photo-related... I had to put it on a tripod anyway... even at ISO 800 each shot took at least a 1.3 sec exposure. (There's your tip for the day).

Hope you enjoy!

Some shots for the Fall

It's a new season and we have some new pictures to get you in the holiday spirit.

There's some fill flash used here, but it's mostly natural light. We wanted to use a low ISO, so we started at 100. To blow out the background, we used a large aperture so speed was the greatest variable. We eventually bumped up the ISO, because shooting hand-held at 1/30 was causing too much blur. Woot.

Rachel was a good sport about standing still for so long in the wet grass. We are entering this in a photo contest, so wish us luck. Stay tuned for the results.

Tis the time of year to get Victorian

This year Rachel and I volunteered to be tourguides for the Gallatin Cemetary Tour. Obviously this required costumes. Apparently all of the Gallatin ghosts are very Victorian. In case you're wondering, this is why I don't have a goatee (well, not the only reason).

I wanted to keep the hat, but they wouldn't let me. Rachel processed the photo of us, and I did the others.
