It's trivia time again!

In the spirit of the's the question! =) In the song the "12 Days of Christmas", what are the gifts that my true love gave to me on the 12th, 8th, 6th, 4th and 2nd day? First one to answer correctly gets my action set. =)
And am I the only one that thinks the gifts are a little out wonky? Why not a IPod, a new lens, a Pottery Barn gift certificate? LOL!!

Now onto the yucky inside lighting photos of Gracie's first official school program:

This is her BFF in class....they are 2 peas in a pod and I just get the biggest kick listening to them talk to each other! LOL!! God bless the boys that they like...they are high maintance girls! =)

Beautiful pictures! Thanks for sharing them. Can you please share your tips on how you took these pictures. I always have so much trouble when shooting indoors with that type of lighting. Did you use on camera flash or off to the side? I was also wondering do you shoot all manual.

Adorable Brenda!

I can't even tell you had "horrible" lighting conditions to work with.

You continue to amaze me. :)

P.S. Consider the boycott of Winkflash to have begun! LOL

Thank you everyone! =) me at and I'll send you the actions! I have to confess...I was trying to remember the song the other day and forgot it...I had to look it up! LOL!!

And the photos....the lighting was the worse....yellow fluorescent...YUCK! I shot in RAW so I could adjust if I needed too. I think my ss was at 1/125 and my aps were around 2.8-3.2 (in manual) My ISO was at 200 and I set my WB too Tungsten and no flash...I never use a flash. =) Your WB is the key when it comes to fluorescent lighting and switching to Tungsten takes away that nasty yellow cast that you get from the lights. I figured they wouldn't be moving much so I was safe with my ss at 1/125, I know that that's the lowest I can go and not get camera shake and with my ISO....I like to stay between 200 to 400. =) I hope this helps you guys out week we have her ballet recital...I'll probably blow all the photos then! LOL!!

Jenny....good! And get this....I got my last client cards today and thank goodness they were the right ones, but they stiffed me on some of the envelopes. And of course I haven't heard back from them....I emailed them telling them their policies stink and that they should really consider changing them. My order still says "printing." I'm going to be a mad woman getting them out! LOL!!

Thanks sweetie! I need to have a different trivia game for you guys on a different time zone. =)

Lauren....Oh they cute! =)
