I mixed all the ingredients together until well combined. Then I lined a 9×9 greased pan with oreos and dumped the mix on top. I baked at whatever temp the box told me to for about 37 minutes and ended up with these! Sigh. They are dangerous. Consider yourself warned!
Our second order of business is the Lightscoop. My home is impossibly dark and difficult to photograph well. My friend Kathleen recommended I buy a speedlight for my camera but they are expensive, and I don’t like expensive. Then I saw Jen from Tatertots and Jello blog about the Lightscoop, then Kathleen had one sitting in her living room and raved about it, and then one of my blog BFF’s Justa blogged about it too! I took all these things as a sign that I needed to buy one….so I did.
(Lightscoop has no idea who I am and this post isn’t sponsored by them. I just like to pass on a good product/tip when I find one!) You attach the Lightscoop to your flash and a mirrored surface bounces the light onto your ceiling and softens it. Here is Asher doing some homeschooling all flashy and harsh. Notice the flash reflected in the window and off the back of the chair, and the shadow of his pencil cast on the wall.
Here she is with the flash on. It’s a very harsh picture.
And here she is with the Lightscoop. This is actually still a bit dark but the colors are truer and the yellow hue is gone. So far I’m liking the Lightscoop. I think it will be a helpful tool for my indoor shots!
Okay, and now lastly we have a craft fail. Wah! I talked Matt into helping me make this last night. Any guesses as to what it is? Peeps on twitter and facebook came up with the following: an alien, a pizza, and my favorite…a gigantic breast implant! Some actually guessed it right too. It’s a sand dollar.
