Default New Toy

No not the model, the camera a Canon 5D3 is new, though I would call her old. I like sleeping at night with my eyes closed.

I don't mind hearing that and the wife loves hearing that she still can look sexy. We took over 75 pics but not a lot of real keepers, I messed up about 10 shots. The other non-keepers were bad expressions on the wife's face. She is still recovering from the surgeries she had late last month putting up with pain whenever she moves around a lot. Next month should be better for her and me.

Thanks again,
Craig

Well, here's hoping she gets to feeling better soon, so we can see more of her (pun intended).

I was talking with Mike (Lomita Mike) in another thread about FF gear. Maybe when the price goes down some more, I might think about it. Right now I am looking to upgrade my old Sony A300 to an A77. FF will have to wait, but at my age, I can't wait forever Haha. Congrats on the Canon. I know you will enjoy it.

I found another use for the camera, it makes a great sleeping aid. Just try sitting up in bed reading the manual, fastest way I know to fall asleep. I write instructions for a living and can say for sure the people who write Canon camera manuals don't work for me. Hey, I'm going to retire in four months maybe I should apply for work at Canon?

Nice shot of a lovely subject.

Having done technical documentation in the past I am constantly amazed by the manuals with most new gear.

Thats a nice shot Craig. I like the background cloth there. How big was that? It really covers the set well.

Pretty sure it is a 10x14 foot backdrop. So far it has worked out very well for us, easy to carry around in its bag and can be lit from the backside as well as the front. Ok, found out about lighting it from the back side by accident when the window light was coming through it one day.
