This is Toothless before he was attacked and captured by the barbarian Hiccup. Here we find Toothless flying the evening skies searching for another helpless victim cowering before the mighty Nightmare.


50mm f/11 1/9s

I am enjoying Toothless way too much. Get used to more :) .   I hung the model from a tree and waited for a sunset that never came. I then removed the strings with GIMP.

And yes I know that I am a dork :D you should try it sometime.

I am canning tonight. This is the shot I made while I was getting ready.

The set up for this was a single 100W 5700K bulb 45 degrees front and to the left of the jars. Then I used my speed light with a home-made snoot out of old newspaper to light the white background. I had to use GIMP to extend the the light into a couple of darker areas.

Somehow chess has taken over my house… I’m not sure how I’ve never been into chess and my wife has never expressed any interest in it.  The kids finally convinced her to go to a chess club at the local library and have been hooked ever since.

MAN DOWN!!

I really, really like this picture. This is a major WWMD (What Would Macgyver Do) shot. I really was hoping that I could figure out how to use my flash off camera. No such luck. So a crappy little LED flash light on a tote held in place by my wife, a long shutter speed and there you go. I converted it to BW in camera and used GIMP to clean up some of the dirt and dings in the board.
