LOL!!

I love seeing your deer visitors, and I especially like the first one -- I like having more of the background show. It would be my choice of enlargement or turning into a painting. Of course, those close-ups with the tongue are wonderful views also.

Overdoze - great portrait concept and execution! Sounds like you are experienced with lighting, which is a subject many of us are still nervous about.

Thanks! Usually great ideas leads to great pictures. And like many others, I got good light days and bad light days. Learning all the time and expirementing is key to success. Shame that I havent had enough time/models to train. And somehow expirienced, Im thinking that my level is somewhere between total amateur and "pro". =D I got lots of know how and now im just trying to learn how to use my knowledge in real situation.

Craig - yup, 'tis I.
Overdoze-that is so cool.
Crazyfly-What a magical moment - in your own backyard!
CJ-gorgeous flowers. The long cold, gray winter has made us all so hungry for bright colors
palms1-We sure had some crazy spring weather. Hope your sprouts survive the hardship

I've been giving myself assignments - how to get a proper exposure, using the tripod -n- stuff. Today is Monday so I tried to get a good 'Bench Monday' (a really kewl group on Flickr) shot.

This is an HDR shot of a tree. The light is pretty awful today but I messed with it until it was purdy

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today) con't

My friend wanted a picture about her new hair so this is the result.

Camera and lens: 40D + 50mm/f1.4 (@5.6 ISO100)
Quick setup for lighting:
AcuteB camera left as main light
BXRi 500 cameral left behind model to blow out background (cleaned in photoshop)
Canon 430EX bounced from ceiling to hair ( to give little fill on the opposite side of main light)

Postpros:
Camera raw for basic adjustments
Toned what i wanted it to look like
lots of cleaning with hair (model skin was great)
little dodgin and burnin all a round (mostly hair, but little hand and face too)
With channel luminosity mask highlight little up with levels and shadows little down to add contrast . (http://www.goodlight.us/writing/lumi...tymasks-1.html) never tried it before.. looked pretty nice.. better that only curves or levels contrast adjustement.

Hope you like it =)

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today) con't

odd, those dont look much like your avatar pic, nasturtium. pretty

spring has finally arrived here, as well. temperatures starting to hit in the 70's. forsythias are out in full, daffodils are going crazy and even the large tulip trees are blooming their large pink and whites. gotta say, i'm liking it

oh, and i love that tree in that shot, nasturtium! what a grand old beast!

Overdoze, she should be very happy with that picture. Thanks for including your lighting details
Craig-Just call me a woman of mystery :-)

This turned out more 'Linda Blair' that I intended but it's just my first attempt
