I look official now.

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

I got my 5 in 1 reflector today so, as my daughter said, I'm official now. LOL I actually LOOK like a photographer. Candice said they would be very helpful in our class and I wished I had had it when I took those pictures of Stephen last month - so now I have one. And let me tell you - that sucker was a bit hard to fold up. Its 42" round, and it folds up like those pool floats that never did get folded back up once we took them out of the package. haha
I followed this video here to actually get it back in the bag: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjlsP9KDjcs&NR=1
I also watched this video, just for fun: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KVJi-wApa2Q

The videos were shared by one of my classmates in my photog. class - so many helpful people in these classes! Of course, when my son came home from school, he took it and folded it up in 2 seconds flat. Show off. LOL

So . . . what is everyone up to today? It is a gorgeous day here in Illinois - though its a bit windy and a little chilly, at least its SUNNY. I can't complain about that! I started my day off sitting for 2 hours in the Jeep repair center - my back window went down yesterday and I couldn't get it back up. Plus my front power outlet only works intermittently. It always conveniently stops working either a) when my cell phone needs charged, or b) when I need to plug in my GPS. Well - guess what? It worked today so they didn't do anything to it. Made me so mad!!!
After that I went to Barnes & Noble to get a Digital Field Guide for my camera. I had one for my last one and it really helped me learn how to use it better so I am hoping this one will help, as I surely need all the help I can get!

Hope everyone is having a fabulous Tuesday! Talk to you soon!
