Photo of the Day - Lij and the boys
Let's see... I've put up all of the four hobbits posing with their action figures in my journal... all except Lij!

You know - I adore my pic of Sean and the boys - it's sweet and warm, and my first. *G* But... it's not well-lit, and it's not sharp (taken at 1600 ASA). Dom's and Billy's are sweet, but not well-lit, in a different way. Here I did use flash, but the background was dark.

Lij's is the best "photograph" of the three. Good ambient light keeps the background light, while the flash keeps the shadows out of his face and allows me to shoot at 200 ASA, for sharpness; and what a sweet pose, with the additional laugh factor of the almost-mohawk. A big thank you to him for allowing me to take this photo - it's a real treasure.

That is a great one. I just started reviewing all my camera lingo (bought a digi SLR a couple of weeks ago), and I know how tough it can be to get nice light modelling and not flatten everything out. (Nice subject matter too!)

Can you describe a DSLR for me. I love cameras but I didn't know something could be defined as SLR when a digital image is made instead of a reflection.

*S* They all were. I just asked (after the autographing was over) if they wouldn't mind "posing with a couple of old friends"?
