Today is a getaway day as I like to call them. Which means we don’t have to work and are heading off into the sunset. The “sunset” in this case is a quick weekend trip. The weather is great warm and sunny with neither rain or cooler temperatures in the forecast. We plan to take a few more Fridays off this year to enjoy the day and elongate the weekend. You can never have enough three-day weekends.
Here is a short video of the most important part of the preparation for a photo session—The Wife inserting her diaphragm. It’s getting harder and harder to find the appropriate supplies; but it still works well for us which is the most important thing.
Rain is forecast for today and tomorrow until the remnants of the hurricane move off to the east. Sometimes we get damaging rain, wind and hail in the aftermath; and sometimes just rain. Comparatively speaking, a little rain isn’t bad. And, once it clears, it looks like the rest of the weekend will be warm and sunny. Have a great three-day holiday weekend. See you on the other side.
The wife is growing her hair longer which is a look I like. Especially since I can’t do anything with my “hair”. Looking back, I think it looks a lot better than when it was much shorter. I don’t have … Continue reading
We haven’t made a lot of progress toward fixing the sound tracks on videos. The best solution would be to reduce the noise at its source; but, there isn’t an easy way to do that besides getting a new bed. The second-best solution would be to take pictures elsewhere; but that isn’t regularly possible, especially with our summer schedule. So, it’s still on the to-do list as we search for alternatives.
Here are a couple of photographs of The Wife preparing for our photo session. A good time was had by all, even if we don’t have video evidence.
I found the “good” battery to our camera. Unfortunately, I somehow mixed it up with the “bad” one and don’t know which is which. It’s obvious when the bad one is being used because the camera dies so quickly. I hope to make a “test” movie to identify the good one.
Unfortunately, not many photos or videos from our last session. Here is a still of a movie that we started to make.
Have a great weekend.
I seem to have misplaced our”good” camera battery after I took it off the charger. I don’t misplace things that often, and I am usually pretty good at finding things when I do. But I didn’t realize it was missing until I noticed that the battery compartment was empty when I was reinserting the memory card and there wasn’t a lot of time to look for it. So, I did not get to work as much on videos this week as I planned since the camera battery died. Hopefully I’ll find it quickly. Meanwhile, I still have a few videos of our “preparations”.
We are still investigating the audio problem with our videos. Sound seems to be better equalized when the microphone is farther away from the sources. So, the next thing to try is repositioning the camera and use the zoom. Hopefully we’ll find a solution sooner rather than later. Meanwhile here is one if our test videos.
