Just A Maine Girl Embarking on Adventures

When a girl is bored!


I was working on shadows, and light, and using the white background to my advantage. 


Picking up things around the house and making for a scene is a good stretch of imagination. 


I do like the glitter.  I don’t know why – it does capture great on “film”. 


The background is some cooking implement I found at the bottom of the cabinets.  And my lego heroes!  The rainbow is popsicle sticks that I glued to a backboard.

I wanted to run a test on what the dominos look like in the light and how shadowy they get, and how well they rebound light.


The coils? Cat toys.  My mini buckets and a bag of marbles I bought at the dollar store.


My popsicle stick background.  My keys.  Smile 


A ring my wife bought me ages ago.  I wanted to see if I could capture the green reflection on the gold.


I’ve some crystals hiding around and the sun was hitting it just right to capture the rainbows on the white background. 

T-t-thats all folks!

Quarantine Photo Shoot 2–3.31.2020

Still locked up (not really, but you all know what I mean!) and today I banged out a few photos in about 20-30 mins.  This is keeping me on my toes, so I’ll keep doing them!


A little history about that paperweight.  My bestest friend in grad school, Jason – left in 1982/83 – and the next time he visited (we were 12ish?) Jason tossed this box at me, and almost took my head off (Yes he loves me!) and inside was this – I’ve had it ever since and I always keep it where I can see it.  And today, it came out to play Smile


That is not a normal sized slinky!  It’s a mini 🙂 – something I must have picked up somewhere.  I also bought some cheap white boards – Again, working on a lot of different post processing methods. 


The sand is from the White Sands in New Mexico.  I played around with some texture and backing – and moving around a light source. 


I found a bunch of free plug ins/presets – and have been playing around w/them and I have to admit – some of them are great!  This concludes my latest fast photo shoot!

Quarantine Day 2! 3.18.2010

I’m not working at the moment, so when my sister in law’s kids were not going to school. I said “I’ll help!” 

My SIL has some great props around the house, so today whilst my niece and nephew were doing homework, I took out the camera.


My niece, Vivian, started to rummage in my camera bag and found all my legos.  We went over all the names, and how to sound them out (She’s 4) – and after a while, I sat by the Typewriter and she brought me each super hero – and we sounded out their names, and she found the 1st letter than correlated to the superhero’s name.  We gotta get creative, right?


So to all the moms and dads who are struggling w/the kids being at home – we got this.  We can all pitch in and support each other from afar and – well, we got this.  Until them – Dream Big Smile
