That's what you get for waking up in Vegas.
WOW. It's been a long time since I've posted anything. I'm really sorry for dropping out on you guys! I had another sort of medical emergency thing, I'd rather not get into it, everything is good now and I'm fine. Unfortunately I have to start my 365days project over. I really hate that I had to quit a second time. But I guess third time's a charm right? I hope so. I plan on starting on the first of October, just to make things easier on me. I had alot of trouble with keeping my days and dates straight and I have learned that EXIF data is your friend and I will set the date on my camera every time I use it. I don't understand why I have to set the date EVERY time though. Do any of you guys' camera's keep track of the days for you or do you have to reset it everytime you change the batteries or turn it on or off? Maybe I need to read my instruction manual.
It's been really nice having a break from taking self portraits! I've been busy making jewelry to sell in my Etsy shop, which has been kind of fun and sort of relaxing. I REALLY need money, I need to have some sort of an income and I just can't work even a part time job with my back being all messed up and hurty the way it is right now. So I'm hoping selling some jewelry will bring in a little money. I'm also working on getting some prints of my photos up for sale too.
That's about it really. I just figured I should check in and let you guys know where I'd run off to. October isn't too far away and I'll try to post a shot of something every day, even if it isn't a self portrait. Maybe I'll go back in the archives and dig up some old shots you guys haven't seen.

I've been wanting to check out the D700's ability to shoot night skies but living in LA poses certain light pollution challenges (not to mention other types of pollution). So finding myself in the middle of the jungle on a relatively clear night I set up the Nikon D700 and the Nikkor 35mm f/1.4 lens. Tried a variety of exposures and ISOs but got my best results at 4 sec. @ f/2 @ ISO 3200. It is amazing what is just over our heads.
