Wow....it's been months since I've been on here. Oops. I guess when life is good time really does fly. Oh well.


Life continues to be pretty damn sweet. Yes indeed.


huh.....


feels weird being on here after being off for so long. Maybe it's time to call it quits on SG? Meh..whatever, we'll see. confused

So...I apparently am the proverbial eater of feet.

After swearing that I'd never ever ever get married again, and proclaiming women to be the root of all evil, I met an angel.

We've been together only a short time (comparatively speaking), and I can honestly say I've never been happier in my whole damn life. I mean, life was good this...

I thought I'd share this with everyone.... Back in September Utah tried this...and was mostly unsuccessful. Though our local power company, Rocky Mountain Power estimates if 750,000 electricity users turned off five light bulbs for an hour, it would save enough energy to completely power 1,300 homes for a week. Sydney, Australia did it and had a 10% energy reduction...2...

No, I used a studio strobe plugged in to a wall socket through a long extension cord.

I used a handheld meter to check the ambient light. I think it was f11.5. I used the handheld meter to set the strobe so it was popping at f22.5 or close to that and set the camera to f22.5. You won't be able to get that out of a 580 speedlight. I'm afraid.

The reason I went 2 stops over with the strobes is because the client wanted a dark blue sky. They asked if I could make it dark blue in photoshop and I told them I would make it a dark blue right now. smile

One thing you can do with the 580 is shoot on a cloudy day, at sunrise and sunset and in the shade. Also, you can use the sun as a hair/rim light and set your strobe to one stop under the sunlight. For example; if the sunlight is hitting your subject at f11 on the back of their head, then light the front of their head with f8 and set your camera to f8.

You know, I have to admit, that Mormon Temple is BEAUTIFUL.

I have a copy of the book of Mormon and keep planning on reading it. I think I should finish my reading of the bible first though, seeing as how the BoM seems to be a sequal of sorts smile

Shitballs... left my wallet at work and tonight at midnight my account expires. I guess it's a sign that it's time for me to go frown

I'm broke anyway....

Thanks for all the good times people...maybe someday I'll be back. I just can't justify the cash when I'm scrimping every last penny elsewhere in my life.

If you want...

Sad. (I guess you really are leaving the MM group.)

I hope things turn around for you soon, and that you'll then be able to rejoin us.

Life is good. A bit on the surreal side, but good nonetheless. My job is precarious, I met a new lady, and my photos have been bringing me a little more happiness lately. I hope this lasts. I don't need the highs anymore than I need the lows...just give me steady and the status quo for just a little while...then we can...

mannn. i've totally discovered that i have absolutely no middle ground. i'm either way up or way down. Unless it's early in the day and nothing has happened yet.... then within the context of a single day i might be ermm. level.
but yea. if you can find a happy medium and be stable at that, power to you man. How you can be anything but up when you've got a new lady and really fuckin nice photographs is beyond me. You took that picture??

You and me both, but it is good to be back! smile

Can I just say how good I feel right now?

I can't put my finger on it, but wow. I haven't felt this whole in a really long time...and damn if it doesn't make me smile.

For a while I never thought I'd come out of this funk...but for once, I feel alright. Content. Happy. Hopeful.

On Wednesday I...

word.
I think I know that feeling. Is it that feeling of being so completely caught off guard by the fact that you feel ok with life? It's like "what? I'm happy??? naw.... that must be some kind of a mistake." mmm. happiness is yummy

i guess if you leave SG i can support your decision. I've thought about it... I can't really afford to renew at the end of next month, but i dunno. I'm not convinced i should leave it all behind. If you're ready and ok with that then way to go man.

go buy some champagne for Wednesday. :-P
