Photo 365: 02.23.11-03.01.11


50mm, 800 ISO, f/1.8, 1/60

I love my little cat, have I mentioned that before? :) I was typing up a blog post and the cat wanted to sit right in front of me on my desk. Since my camera was sitting right next to me, I grabbed it and took this hand held shot.

At times like these I’m so glad we have all white bedding. I don’t think this shot would be the same if our duvet cover was patterned. This is also a hand held shot.


When I’m in my craft room at night, Jason will come keep me company while working on his laptop. Many times the cat will have to come hang out too. I set my camera on the floor and jumped in beside them for a little family portrait :)

This is a concept I have been wanting to try since I first started this project. But I had to wait for the perfect day. When I woke up in the morning I saw that we were supposed to get a huge storm. So I waited and waited until the perfect time when I would get completely drenched. I was working on my computer and I heard it start to rain. And once you hear it you have to hurry because sometimes the rain only lasts for a little bit. I ran to get all of my gear ready and headed outside. The thunder was rolling and the lightning was flashing. I will be honest, I was a tiny bit scared. The rain was coming down so hard it was insane. But it was what I needed if I wanted the rain to show up in the picture. I got wet to the bone in seconds but it was worth it. And, I didn’t get struck by lightning :) I’m sure all of the passing cars thought I was an idiot! To get the shot, I set up my tripod on the porch so it wouldn’t get wet and then used timer. I couldn’t get the shot I had envisioned simply because it can’t be done on self timer or I would have to get my camera wet. So I settled with this shot and I like it. If you want to attempt this at home, make sure you have a towel waiting for you by the door so as not to bring in puddles with you :) Next time it rains, I have more ideas for other shots to try. Bring it on!

A tripod and timer picture. This is where I sit to do all of my blog posts so now you have an idea of what it looks like for me to type them out for you :)
