Installing a new Pella external back door.

Uncategorized No Comments »

We bought our house on Memorial Day weekend 2002 (7 years ago). During the building process, I was harping on the builder about everything I could find. Apparently, I didn’t harp enough about the doors and windows! Every external door in our house is starting to have problems, from the gap between the door frame and the door getting big enough to let sunshine through to the door itself falling apart.

Christmas Card Pictures

Uncategorized No Comments »

I am fortunate enough to be working with a great person who loaned me his professional camera flash setup so I could take family Christmas pictures.  It was the first time I had ever used a flash outside of the flash on the camera itself.  After a very quick how-to from my friend, I got everything setup in the house and started playing with all of the settings on the camera and the flash intensity.  I set the camera up to match the flash meter, but my pictures ended up too bright.  So, I started playing with all of the possible variables. The flash intensity, the fstop, the aperature, the shutter speed.  Finally, I think I got a wonderful first time professional picture of my girls.

The only problem I have with the picture is the location of the flashes themselves.  It would have been just a little nicer if I had the flashes in a better position to show one flash in the girls eyes.  Otherwise, I am exstatic with the performance of my models.  It’s amazing the difference between two 4 year olds and two 3 year olds in the ability to take direction and hold still for the camera.  Look out world!
