...but they don't fall down. I had no idea you could balance a soda can like this until DS did it the other day. Apparently if you leave a little liquid in it, you can do this little trick. (I was unable to replicate the effect. ) No camera tilting was employed in the taking of this photograph.
Settings: DRebel XT w/ 24-70mm L lens in manual mode (I dared to try!) at 54 mm SS1/100 F2.8 ISO 800 And in an effort to post a photo actually taken today, even if it's sucky, the following picture. Settings: same lens at 32mm AV mode F2.8 SS 1/6 ISO 400 w/ +2.3 exposure compensation. No camera tilting here either. Baxter likes to lie on the back of the couch with his head hanging off the side, and I lay down on the floor underneath him to get this shot.
And a couple of cropped/burning edges tries on my football photo. I think in the second one the burning looks weird on the top because the sky wasn't uniformly dark to begin with from the light shining on the left-hand side. What do you think of these?
DH wasn't really trying to sabotage me with the goodies yesterday. They were for a client lunch that got canceled so he brought them home for the kids. I just had to accuse him of abuse, because isn't complaining about your husband on the internet the #1 way to strengthen your marriage? :-D
