I have had many people ask me about my new assistant.
I purchased her at Micheal’s over a year ago. She was $3.50.
I went into Michaels with the mindset to get one of the “pretty white birds” that I had been seeing in blogland….
But her pretty green color caught my attention.
Her price tag kept my attention.
And I bought her.
She has been living on the mantel in my living room and just recently became one of my props.
She has began up-staging my projects and taking some of the focus….but that’s all good because I had my reasons for using her.
Do you remember me telling you about buying my sister-in-laws old Nikon D2X?
It is way smarter than me.
Learning how to operate the camera manually, or even on Auto for that matter, has been a struggle.
Mainly, because when I take the photo….it is usually not perfect….so I have to tweak the lighting after I upload it.
When I do that….I have to be very careful that I get my colors exactly right or you guys start thinking a white table is gray….a gray table is beige…..
Why do I know that?
Because I did that.
I could tell my adjustments were not exactly right and some of your comments confirmed that.
Which brought in my little green bird.
When I began using her as one of my props….her vivid color, was a “great check” for me when adjusting my photos.
I could make sure I was being true to “real life” with my colors.
And my little green bird….
She has become quite comfortable as my prop.
As long as she doesn’t get too “cocky”….she can stick around.
Sometimes….I just mess with her head.
And I pose her in crazy situations to see how she handles it.
You know…..Make sure she knows who’s boss…….
I call this “staff control”.’
I think she and I will do fine.
So are you having any photography issues?
Do you have tips to getting the perfect shot?
I’ve told you my secret……
Now tell me yours.
