Fisheye 2

I am so excited to start using my new Fisheye 2 camera Scott bought me for Christmas!  It has been a long time since I have used a plastic film camera.  Believe it or not, he actually bought this at American Eagle (not online).  In store, they had four plastic cameras to choose from.  I had seen them in the store before, but had not actually stopped to check them out until a few weeks before Christmas.  I decided that lomography would be a fun hobby and a plastic camera would be an interesting addition to my two digital cameras.  The cameras, including film, were 50% off that day, so Scott bought me a Diana Mini & Flash Petite Noire, which I will blog about soon, to open on Christmas.  The Fisheye 2 was a surprise on Christmas Eve!

The Fisheye 2 offers several features to enhance photos.  You have the option to turn on or off the internal flash.  There are three different exposure modes.  One locks the shutter; another takes a picture a set aperture and shutter speed; and the third setting is for long exposures.  An external flash can also be attached!

I can't wait until I use up my first roll of film and get it developed.  First, I need to get our scanner to work so I can share my lomography on my blog and facebook.

Crafty Christmas Gift

I made a second set of coasters as a Christmas gift for my mom.  My mom is very crafty and really enjoys sewing and knitting.  I happened to find a set of scrapbook paper (60 sheets) from Hobby Lobby called Yarn and Thread Emporium that I used for the coasters.  I chose four prints- two somewhat "busy" prints and two tone-on-tone type prints.  The set will be great for her to use in her sewing room as she crafts and drinks her sweet tea.

Bindi and Lillie

Both of these photos were taken with my Canon Rebel T3i on the automatic setting and with my Canon Speedlite.  The top photo shows Bindi- one of my aunt and uncle's cats.  Bindi used to be much larger and fluffier.  However, she is much smaller now and looks like a completely different cat.  The vet believes it is possible that she has pancreatic cancer.  Although, when this photo was taken, you wouldn't know she possibly had cancer.  She loved the attention on Christmas Eve and purred and purred.  I love the clarity of her beautiful blue eyes in the photo.  Look closely and you can even see her tongue sticking out.  The bottom photo is of Lillie- also one of my aunt and uncle's pets.  Lillie is a mix of Basset Hound and Beagle.  At first she was not so sure about the camera and flash, but soon got used to it and showed off her sweet, yet pitiful looking expression.

The kitties were nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of cat treats danced in their heads.

I love the way the off-white sheets on the bed make Mia's cute face stand out and make the photo look dream like.  I used my Canon Speedlite and my camera's Automatic setting to take this photo.
