Digital tricks for the hostess...lets start with sepia...

I attended a workshop on the Digital Camera today.
I took copious notes, they are a mess of abbreviations and scrawl.
I was advised to come home and play with my new skills, do some homework!

I loved the colour options and had no idea how these worked.
 I thought that photoshop did the colour changes...I never knew it originated in the camera.
I am starting out with the sepia as I like what it does to textures.

We were advised to shoot from unusual angles and to use some new composition guidelines.
The rule of thirds, full frame focus, and the golden mean.
These are suggested areas on where you'd place the emphasis or focus.

Walter Bosse or Baller bronze cat from Austria, vintage thrift shop find. 
I have not researched this new find yet.
Cute face!

Oak candle sticks made in shop class by our son, when he was in grade 9.
He surprised me one year and gifted them to me...I will say...there were tears involved!

Copper framed photo of our Chris Craft on the desk. 

Mrs. Plant, long time Bungalow resident, in vintage sepia, so fitting!

We watched the hockey game this evening and had our dear friends join us for a simple dinner.
 On the menu-
Gin and Tonics
 Goat cheese, bite size heirloom tomatoes, Carrs water crackers, pepperoni sticks.
Homemade beef chili and garlic bread
rhubarb strawberry pie and ice cream.

The score was 7 to 2...and the Canucks won.
Have a great weekend!
