Welcome to My Still Sunday – (Edition 7)
If you are new to my site…. Please stay a few and take a peek around….say hello…I’d love to hear from you.
My Still Sunday is a day to share a few quiet still photos…..and a little Behind the Scenes info…..
It’s a new year…… Oh my goodness…. I’m so excited about 2015….
It feels like I have a hundred blogposts in my head….
I’ve yet to spill one……
So much to say about this year….. including my word for the year, plans for more Gatherings…. and some real life happenings that have me spinning…..
The post-Christmas fog has lifted (for the most part)….Phew… How ’bout you?
Honestly… the energy around 2015 feels electric…. everyone I talk to…is abuzz… So exciting!!
Today I started a cleanse…. not really a cleanse…. but I am eliminating all carbs and sugar, juicing twice a day….. for the next several days…. Oh and the big one…. no more diet coke… At least during the cleanse…then defintiely cutting back after that…
For today’s breakfast……scrambled eggs….
Eggs are so picturesque….. don’t you think?
When all else fails…grabs some eggs and start clicking….the possibilities are endless….
I’ve been using my props for everyday…. It’s silly not to…..I have so many pretty props….I figure, It’s time to start enjoying them in real life (not just in photos).
I love the morning light in the studio….
During the week, I have my breakfast before the sun comes out… Sunday mornings I sleep a little later, eat a little later… and so… the light was just right this morning.
Today’s Props – a few of my favourite things
- farm fresh eggs
- milk carton from Super Store
- stoneware bowl & ceramic egg carton from Winners (no surprise, I’m sure)
- my new table (for a new year) from Lady of the Lake…. I about burst when I saw it….They had just put it out on the floor….it wasn’t even priced yet….. So happy I stopped by when I did. I will have to take some wider photos so you can see all of it’s beauty…..
- frayed linen from the prop swap at Gather…. (Barb was this your swap?) I love it….
D800 with the nikon f/2.8 24/70 … (my go-to lens)….
I set my f/stop at f/5 and adjusted the iso, then shutter speed accordingly.
All photos processed in Lightroom using my kk_Litely preset. (presets are exclusive to students in my classes).
