Having your ISO set incredibly high EVEN THOUGH IT IS DARK OUT is not a good idea. I was thinking, low light conditions - huh, high ISO. I set the ruddy thing to 1600, thinking this would help with my shots at Bridgeport. God was I wrong.

Sure, high ISO lets in a lot of light - but it also increases your grain. This is not good. My shots turned out like ass. I should have instead set the ISO to 400, and the apeture below 4.

I also should have taken my tripod. I discovered today that long lense means more shake. Bad news bears for me. I was trying to take 300mm shots. Oops.

I know these are very newbie-ish mistakes, and I can live with that. The new lens is throwing me. :\

I love learning days though - gives me an excuse to go back to the place I screwed up at and re-shoot.

I have an interview next week with Hallmark Institute of Photography. It sounds hopeful, but we know how I do on interviews. I need to work on those selling myself skills. I'm so excited, I hope I get accepted. The admissions guy asked for my website addy so... eek! I'm freaking out about having someone who knows look at my stuff.

My new lens came today - woot! Guess who'll be out taking pictures all weekend?

anyway - this is one of many of mine:

The levels are adjusted just a tad, but otherwise - all me.

So, I purchased a 100 - 300mm lens today, and a new keyboard for my laptop. YAY ME!! I've been using the board with no 6, T, or N key for months now. It will be refreshing to have buttons there to push again.

Canon will take my other lens for repair, I'm just hoping it doesn't cost and arm and both legs. Free is good. Especially since I paid extra money for the warranty. $1,100.00+ for the damn thing - I'm sure *hope* they can help me out. In the meantime I'll have the 50mm, the new 100/300mm, and the 17/75 zoom. I'll miss the 18/55 while it's gone though.

I had someone ask about wedding portraits, I'd love to know who since they didn't leave a name. I'd love the oppourtunity to add more portraits to my portfolio... and frankly I'm tired of taking shots of me. Blah!

I have not been sleeping. Last night I slept for about 9 hours.

I am still exhausted and feel like I havent slept in a year.

And the cats broke my damn lens the other day. Furry little f'ers.

One day, Chrissy's mom looked into her eyes and said, "What's wrong with your eyes? Why are they all red?" "Gee mom," Chrissy replied, "I'm not sure."

10 hours and eyedrops later...

"I think you have pink eye. They shouldn't be that red, and it's gotten worse. I'm going to schedule an appointment for you on Monday with Jerry."

My leg is killing me. I woke up out of a dead sleep with throbbing in my knee, calf, and ankle. I think it's the weather. It's so flippin cold in here right now. 26 year olds should not have to suffer arthritis pain when the weather gets cold. It's just not right.

I fell right to sleep when J and I went to bed last night, which is odd considering I didnt get up until well past noon yesterday. Must have been the beer.

Depending on the weather I might go out and shoot at the cemetary today. There is an old catholic graveyard across the street from the catholic church that has beautiful tombstones.

Going out with Jenn and Brandi was fun. It was nice getting to catch up. I felt so out of the loop at times. We are adults now; the last I remember we were all 13 years old. Time flies.

J called about the appartment in chicopee, nothing available till Summer. :)

Back to bed I go... for it is only 4am and I have hours of good sleep time left.

the greatest man ever.

I am browsing on ebay for lenses tonight, price comparing and whatnot - and realize that they are dirt cheap there. Wow. So I start linking them to him and he suddenly pops out with, "When I get some cash we're getting everything you need, because these prices dont come around often." (not exact wording, but damn close).

I am amazed. No honey, that's too much money. "I'll tell you what. I'll get your stuff now, and christmas will be small. Deal?" shock, awe, amazed.

Now, I am not going on about this because he is buying me a fuck of a lot of money worth of equiptment, I am going on about this because of the fact that he wants to do this for me. His exact words, " I want to make every dream come true for you, baby." It's not about the stuff, it's about the feeling behind the stuff. This incredible man thinks my dreams are worth while, and supports me in them fully. Just, wow. Just that he wants to.. he doesnt even have to, that he WANTS to... is so enough.

I hope he knows he is my dream.
