This was quite the weekend! Two of three bedrooms have been cleaned up, packaged, and taken to an off-site storage so we can “stage” the house. Apparently staging a house is very important when selling. It helps “define the space” for the prospective buyer. Anyway, as a result of all the lifting, bending, pushing, pulling, hauling, and shoving (oh yeah, we packed some boxes too!), we are very much in a state of “muscle failure”. For the more athletically inclined, you know what I am talking about. For the rest, when you push your muscles to the brink of not being able to work, they quiver visibly, and that is called muscle failure. Suffice to say, our normally light-hearted fare transitioned very quickly to a Whopper with fries and an ice cold beer afterwards.
Anyway, no glory shots from the new 40D to share…sorry. Although I am stopping by the storage unit later on today, so will likely have the camera with me. Whilst organizing that, I did notice a few “photo opportunities” (whenever I hear that phrase, I think of Ron White and a bit he did – see reference link from the 4:30 mark to 6:00 mark) , so may have some better post material tomorrow or later on today. Tomorrow will be another fun video too…so a little teaser there just to keep you interested. Until then though, take a moment and stop over at ProPhotoLife. They put out a great video on how to light tabletop stills wit just one light and mirrors as your other light sources. Very cool – especially for the DIYer (I am going to go retrieve a mirror I was going to throw out in the move now!)
Happy shooting, watch those apertures, and we’ll see you tomorrow!
