Fire Trucks and Black Background Photography

My husband has been trying to develop a Toy Fire Truck for his Etsy shop. The first two were a bit miss proportioned but after a lot of yelling (he is still a retired Sailor first) he came up with a good one.

While I was in the Black and White Photo Class it was a combined class with 2nd semester students also in the class. Me being me, I would go over and see what their projects were and one of their projects was Product Photography. I fell in love with the photo's one of the girls was taking, she was doing everything on Black.

To Photograph the Fire Trucks I thought I would give a black background a try. Here are a few of the shots:

It really helped in being able to Photograph the very light color wood. Then my cat walked by and I captured this one in a million shot, Kitty rubbing on the Fire Truck Ladder:

The black background really helps the subjects. There is no way this picture would look like that on white.

Wordless Wednesday...Santana&Feather Bed

When you go off to do laundry for several hours, you shouldn't leave your feather bed exposed to a puppy, especially if it already has a tear in it.

Happy New Year

I hope you all had a wonderful New Years celebration. I hardly ever stay away until mid-night, and this year was no different I was in bed when the guns started going off, and the dogs started barking. After 30 minutes of that everything got quite again, and I went back to sleep.

2011 was an interesting year for me, my little identity crisis has lasted way to long, I think it has moved into the mid-life crisis definition by now. I do still want to get a BA in Art, but have come to the realization that going to school during the day is a must in order to complete the classes I need to graduate. So for 2012 that goal will be put on hold.

What will need to happen in 2012 is I will need to find a large source of income, so I'm currently looking for a night job, to add to the day job. My daughter will be going on a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints when she turns 21 in June, to begin with she will need a new wardrobe because she never really busy skirts and the one's she has I wouldn't call presentable.

So for 2012 I will be posting about all the sewing I will be doing to build a Female Missionary Wardrobe, I've already made one skirt which I will post soon, I can't sew to much until I know what part of the world she will end up in. I can foresee a lot of sewing happening in the month of May.

Getting my child on a Mission will be the focus of 2012. And hopefully in June there will be a week long trip to Utah, I'll drop her off and then go explore what Utah has to offer, another reason I want to have a good size savings account. If you know of any Part time jobs feel free to send them my way.

I wish you all the best for the New Year.
