There are just not enough hours in the day, I keep saying that and unless my life slows down dramatically I think I am gonna have a nervous breakdown LOL.
A friend of mine gave me a nice big piece of black felt, well not huge, it is about 5ft x 5ft and I was interested to see how reflective it is. I have been wanting to buy a piece of black velvet for ever but living in the country I have to travel 22 odd miles to get to a Walmart (Big Supermarket/Superstore for non Americans) or fabric shop. Our little town just has our essentials nothing more. I hate shopping so I put it off for as long as humanly possible. Anyway I thought I would shoot something on it and see, I just used the on camera flash on my 20D and made up a makeshift infinity curve with it and put one of my husband's many indian ornament collection pieces on it and took a few shots. It isnt as good as velvet for sure but it can be sorted out quite quickly in PS. I need to find a willing model and take a few portraits on it using the studio flash. I havent shot that sort of thing for ages.
So this is my picture for the day. I have also included a horse shot to give those who want it their daily fix of horses. This is the Blue Roan filly BB who I shot the other day with her feet and nose in the ice in the field. She is 3 years old now and is gorgeous.
Hope you all had a good day, we got a bit more snow and the temps are dropping tonight into the single digits F so the cold has finally come. Keep well all.
