Just a pretty picture?   Leave a comment

While many may consider this just another pretty picture of a pretty young lady, for the photographer in me it points out a couple of things of interest – at least to me.

The picture was taken with natural light, indoors, with a Canon 7D and a Tamron 28-75/2.8 lens, wide open.  Again, nothing unusual but what is amazing is that it was shot at ISO 3200.   Minimal post processing was done. Isn’t technology great?

Ice Cream Socials – with liquid nitrogen   Leave a comment

A fun time last Sunday with our church, Living Water Community Church, at our annual liquid nitrogen ice cream social.

The liquid nitrogen is poured into the bowl of cream and sugar, freezing it –

Mixing the ice cream is about like churning ice cream – hard work –

Ice cream is great but adding toppings makes it greater. Let’s get this going guys –

A happy customer back for a refill –
