    Gahaha! I wondered if my Russian was just picky, but I think it's a character trait for Russians. :p

    My Russian is easily my pickiest and most stubborn tortoise.

    That makes me happy. Torts can be so stubborn! Ginger went almost a week refusing to eat any mixed veggies, which she used to eat all of the time!! Now she wants only freshly sliced veggies, nothing like a spring mix.:mad:

    @saginawhxc , I decided I don't want to get the umbrella after all because I never really do studio pictures. It's usually out somewhere where I don't have time to set up a lot of equipment. I wondered if you have had any experience with these types of flash diffusers? Do they work well? They are very cheap!

    And I'm super excited about these lenses. I'm saving up for them!!! I REALLY want the infrared.

    I haven't used those diffusers, but there is something similar that pops over a speedlight, and I would almost never use direct flash without some sort of diffuser. For what you are looking for I think they will do the job.

    Sweet!! I will definitely have to get them! All my pictures with the flash look just awful because the "subjects" get all shiny and blinded in the process. I also want to create a warmer look, which I believe the yellow will do. As soon as I get it, I will post pictures of the difference.

    Do you have an infrared lens? Please feel free to share any of your pictures! I'm looking for inspiration everywhere. (But I won't steal your ideas!!);)

    I don't have an infrared lens. Though at one point I toyed with converting an older camera over to IR. Once you make that conversion though it's permanent.

    @saginawhxc , look what I found at a yard sale!!! I got it for $6 and I'm still trying to figure out exactly what it does. It helps with zooming at far distances, it can cause vignetted edges when it is zoomed(is that really how you spell "vin-yet"?), and it seems to have a very slight fish-eye. The man who sold it to me seemed to think he was giving me a great deal, but I'm thinking I should have bargained... lenscamera 002.JPG lenscamera 001.JPG

    For $6 it's hard to go wrong. I think they typically sell anywhere from $10-20. I haven't used them, so I don't know a ton about them.

    Is this a two piece lens? If it is, I think you can use them separately. One gives macro ability and one roughly doubles the field of vision. I think you can typically use them together or separate.

    Man, I'm dumb sometimes. It did come apart!!! It was stuck really tight. I guess technically it's got three pieces because I have the ultraviolet one too, but that one just protects the lens. I'm going to have to play around with it to see what I get! Thanks!

    Definitely not dumb, but I'm betting you know that. Just like tortoises, nobody knows what they are doing right out of the gate.

    Hey guys... you know that calendar I made a while ago? Well, it just wasn't enough. I had to have Ginger on my backpack too. :D I had the backpack made for me by a company called "Zazzle" online. The front is interchangeable if I want to make more! Now I just need a phone case of Ginger, a laptop cover, a pillow case... ;) mebackpack 021.JPG
