This one's for Eric . . .thanks alot 120/365

Eric has been taking some awesome images and experimenting with off camera flashes. He has myself and Elli trying to keep up with him. Well, we are trying to keep up with him on our own - LOL
Not that I could keep up with this technology savvy young man but I like to keep learning.
So here is my frustrating try at off camera flash. I like sun light much better thank you. I have a long way to go before I get the hang of this little flash.
By the way - pardon the dust on her - she's a garden statue I brought in from the green house just to photograph. She doesn't look so good here but in the garden she's simply amazing! She has a partner and was a gift from my Mother-in-law.

HOWEVER, I don't think he can beat me in the kitchen or beat Dave for that matter.
Again, Off camera flash, the picture doesn't do it justice but this is one of the best meals we've made in awhile.
While researching more photography stuff I came across The Pioneer Woman site. What an amazing site. Lots of "everyday" stuff. I read most of her photography stuff then came across some recipes that looked delicious. Including something called "Crash Potatoes" so I tried them tonight. Yes, the were delicious. See Here: Broccoli and Dave made the steak and gravy. Yummy!

Sandra, I've learned so much from Elli as well,and as you start playing, I'm sure I'll learn from you too! There's so many things to try, I can't wait to see what you do

Now all of you are making me want to try off camera flash. Thanks for posting the link for Pioneer woman. I looked at her website a while ago, but not at the recipes. My Dh spent some time looking at her site this morning! The potatoes look really good.

I love the fact that we're all learning from each other! (Oh, I also love Pioneer Woman's site!) Did you bounce the flash for your garden woman? Maybe in the second shot?

I think you and I may be able to beat Eric in the kitchen, but we sure can't beat him at DIY stuff!! Have you seen his newest creation? A homemade ringflash!

I've been a huge fan of Pioneer Woman for quite a while now. I love her photography blog. I read it all the time even though I don't have an SLR, or Photoshop. But I figure it's all in my brain now, so when I do get that stuff, I will know it all already. (Do you think it really works that way?)

I love your sites Sandra. I peek at them often, even though I don't always leave comments. :)
