We're in a funky stage right now, by which I mean "a stage which puts me in a funk."  The kids are oblivious and happy, but I am less than enamored with their current conditions.  Jax has decided that the art of listening is not high on his priority list and has deemed myself, his gymnastics instructor, his music teacher, and any other adult who tries to corral him into a polite or sedentary state as irrelevant.  No need to listen to them; they're irrelevant. …

A little MacGuyver inspired photo shoot

But today I thought I'd give you a tutorial on how to take some "product shots."  You know, pictures of things like jewelry or food or anything that you want to take  a photo of but you want it to have a white background and to be sitting on a white surface. Does this make sense?…

Walking On Water

This weekend we bundled up to do something that was rustic even by Vermont standards.  Uber-outdoorsy.  Not my usual cup of tea.  In fact, my father-in-law was so suprised to see my step out of the mini-van that he exclaimed, "You're coming, too?"  Of course I'm coming.  It's not every day I get to take pictures of Jax's first time ice…

Leading Lines--A Mini-Photography Tutorial

From Rub Some Dirt On It, http://vermontwhitneys.blogspot.com
