:-D Marabou Stork Approval. I win!
Heh. I'm looking forward to using the centre column as a monopod. Going to rig up a clamp adapter, so when I don't want to haul the tripod around at night, I have a way to clip to any available support.
Thank you. You and/or the wife will have to come by and fiddle around with the camera sometime.
Oh, yay! Well-deserved vanity, and I look forward to the new pictures coming for I need goodness!!!
invited me along for an expedition this weekend which, if I'm lucky, should produce some good stuff.
P.S. Every time I see that icon I get hungry!
Have I told you yet that I love that hair?
Possibly, but I don't mind hearing it again. ;-) It's a look I call "growing out after the last time I haphazardly chopped it with scissors."
Thanks! The style is called "growing out."
Hee hee. I haven't used a tripod yet, but I relate to the vanity. Finally, your hair unobstructed!
Ha. I'm not totally certain that's a good thing. However, I spent pretty much all day today tramping across the English countryside with imyril
and playing with the tripod. It's kind of amusing how gingerly people treat you and the space around you when you're carrying around a tripod-mounted SLR. "Oh, you must be a SERIOUS photographer!"
Nice! It'd sure be lovely to get indoor shots with realistic looking light *sighs*. I should borrow my Dad's tripod sometimes.
It's nice if your flat allows a lot of natural light in. Ours has huge windows, so I generally don't need a lot of extra light unless I'm doing a close-up shot of something small. If you can plan out a shot and set aside some time to play with it, get the correct exposure, etc, a tripod is an invaluable assistant, I think.
First off, it's a great pic. Once you get into the land of 30 second exposures, you'll never go back...
Second, love the new look...and where did you find that shirt?!?
Ho ho! Did my first night shoot this evening, in fact, in Ye Aulde Englishe Countryside.
I got the shirt during the trip to Puerto Rico from the sale bin of some surf shop. The brand name is Split.
WOW...beauty AND books!, doesn't get much better than that.
Nice pic mate
Maybe if I'd somehow included Beer? :-D
nice photo, but it looks like your books have been spawning!
Oh man. Yeah, they have. We haven't stuck to our "one book in means one book out" rule very well.
Rowr! How do you like the quick release plate - is it the kind that screws into the bottom of your camera and stays there? I like ours pretty well - we have one on the tripod I got for Brian's digital cam.
Yep, that's the kind I have. I love it. I plan to just leave it on there all the time. It doesn't add much weight to the camera anyway.
Indeedy. And imyril
allowed me to indulge my urge to play with the tripod outdoors and at night today, even though it was freezing cold. She's, as they say in the parlance here, ace.
