Seeing - sorry, make that "Hearing" - Double!
(Jules - they just used "bifurcated on The Simpsons! *G* But, darn, wish I was watching CoRo right now - *pout*)

So, you may know that Ashton Kutcher was in two different movies simultaneously earlier this fall that held first and second positions at the box office - the animated "Open Season", and the live action "The Guardian".

Well, I'm no fan of Ashton, but I am a fan of Elijah Wood and Andy Serkis, and - guess what? They have the potential to do the same.

This week, Andy Serkis is in both the animated "Flushed Away" (just opened), and "The Prestige" (opened recently), both of which I hope will do well - *crosses fingers*.

And Nov. 17, Elijah will be in both the animated "Happy Feet" and the live action "Bobby"!

*G* Just thought it was pretty cool!

And now... silly pictures of animals in Halloween outfits... because, dammit, they're CUTE!

Classics: Star Wars and Pirates!




General silliness...





And Piglet and Pooh... *G*

They have for some time!!! That's why I was surprised they keep coming back there.

Damn. I used the evening to go through pics of them, and missed them terribly. It just felt wrong to have them in town and not see them! But I waited, because I wanted to let other people see them; I figured I'd only go if it wasn't sold out - and it was.

Any luck on the Georgia recording? I'd love one, too, since they didn't sell their last Chicago one (and it would have been good!).

dear Ros, just a question: do you have any good photographer's advise for me? I like to make the best pictures of Sean next weekend ;)
I still use my Kodak DX6490, 38-380 mm (it has a damn slow autofocus)

*L*! They *did* have one with a cat... wasn't very good - *G*.

Sure!

First of all, pick the highest quality setting (the one with the largest file size).

For posed pictures at a signing, your automatic settings are probably the best (i.e., it will probably use a flash).

If you're taking photos from the autograph line and don't want to "flash" him repeatedly (or don't want to get caught!), then make sure you set the flash to off, and set the fastest camera setting (called "ISO" or "ASA" or "film speed" or "speed", you want the highest number: 1600 is better than 800, 800 is better than 400, and so on). You'll want to use these same settings at a talk.

Only exception: if you're within 10 (possibly 20) feet at a talk, and you don't have heads in the way, you may want to use your automatic settings and let it flash. Flash doesn't work well beyond 10 (sometimes 20) feet, and if you have heads in the way, it will really just illuminate them brightly and think that they're the subject, and the people on stage will turn out dark. But be kind to the people on stage and don't take as many pics if you use flash.

And, yes, check after the first couple of pics to make sure your settings work! *G*

YAY!!!! SEAN!!!! Have fun!!!!!!

Thanks ;)
I hope I don't need much flashlight. Last year at the autograph line I didn't need flashlight at all.

I did practice last night (using spouse and neighbors and a lot of different light sources) and the pictures went out well.

Next week at this time we will know more about my skills ;)
