TAKING PICTURES OF YOUR PETS

I LOVE TAKING PICTURES…..

BABY BEAN

BABY BEAN

I LOVE PHOTOGRAPHY
I used to want to be a photographer for National Geographic Magazine.
I have loved taking pictures since before…well before EVERYONE took pictures.
Before there were cameras in phones and before there were phones without cords…

I LOVE FREEZING TIME…CAPTURING MOMENTS…

 

I miss 35mm FILM but I Love that Digital  has made
Photography…more accessible.
But it will always be more than JUST taking a picture to me.
After millions of photos I think it is safe to say that I will never tire
of the light and the angles,
the stories and
  the shots that take your breath away.
Charlie and his piggie…
Like SO MANY OF THE THINGS I DO AND LOVE DOING…
I taught myself Photography.
By taking photos of my children…and my pets.
I have taken a number of classes…
but everything I have LEARNED..
…has been CAUGHT not TAUGHT
I caught the drift of photography by taking many many bad photos.
Making Mistakes….
too dark, too blurry, to boring…too posed…and
I STILL take bad photos….but I LOVE the process.
The QUEST. Maybe I am a gambler…
I in no way consider myself an expert or even a really gifted photographer…
but I LOVE the ART of photography
and THAT my friends is why I take pictures.

Bean has discovered this stool which sits right by the window…he LIVES for a sun bath…and follows the sun around the house all day…soaking in the warmth

I still Have to look up my cliffnote instructions for using the f-stop and the aperture …STILL
so HERE I will simply tell you my 5 VERY BASIC STEPS to getting the best pictures you can…on just your
AUTO setting. no reflectors, nothing fancy..just YOU and your camera…on AUTO.
HERE are my 5 STEPS

TO GETTING GOOD PICTURES OF YOUR PETS

1. GOOD LIGHTING –
THE FIRST thing I do when I teach basic photography to kids and I have them all turn off their flash.

It is easy…you find this icon:
…..your camera directions will help, but usually you press on this symbol and some choices will come up…choose this one:  now your flash is off!

Next, I teach them the kids to find the good light.
YOU know your home better than anyone…is there a particular spot that every time you pass it, looks beautiful, bathed in sunlight….a a certain time of day? Even on a yucky day? If so, USE that spot…
case in point…I TOOK PHOTOS of the graduating 5th graders at our elementary school for 5 years, each student…that is a lot of kids, and EVERY single time I took the pictures …i had them sit in the same spot at the same time of day on a sunny day….because it is a WIN WIN spot!!!…Under a shady tree but with sun shining through…the kids get pretty sunshine on their hair..and the pictures are always great!!…

In my home, at certain time of day…EACH DAY….the sun shines through our front door and makes for very pretty shots….
FIND YOUR LIGHT!!! charlie and bean
You can also us a tripod and do even more with the settings on your camera to
“capture” and hold onto light…but again…we are doing BASIC stuff here.

2. CAPTURE A MOMENT –

MUCH OF TAKING PHOTOS OF PETS IS HIT AND MISS…THEY SEEM TO MOVE JUST AS YOU GRAB YOUR CAMERA…MAKING THOSE SHOTS YOU DO GET EVEN MORE PRECIOUS!

GUS jumped down the second I took this photo

GUS jumped down the second I took this photo

DASH was always on the move…

Yes, yes, this is what it all is about right? Well,  then why are we constantly setting our pets  and children and ourselves up to fail by STAGING our photos? Pets are best caught running, climbing, jumping and just being themselves….
TIDBIT – and this goes for ALL of your photos, home, pets, children..you DO NOT have to get the whole subject in the photo…I challenge you to go look in a magazine…RARELY is an entire person, or animal or room in the photographs…you FEEL like they are…because the photos allow you to fill in the blanks…but when you really look, much is left to the imagination…and the photos are beautiful!

This picture of me carrying Charlie like a baby was taken by a 3rd grader!!! It caught the moment of me and my “4rth child” so perfect…we could not have planned it…just be ready..because LIFE is ALWAYS happening…
HUMOR HELPS....

HUMOR HELPS….

…AND WHO SAYS THEY ALL HAVE TO BE CLOSE-UP …..

3. ADD A KID – lets face it, kids and dogs or bunnies, kitties, or horses…go VERY well together…CUTE squared…..BIG KID, LITTLE KID, NEWBORN…IT IS A WIN WIN!

4. LET SLEEPING DOGS (AND CATS AND KIDS)  – SLEEP!
They do not have to be AWAKE !!! How is it that  our pets (AND BABIES) can make sleep look intoxicatingLY delicious???Get out your camera…catch it….but shhhhh…they wake up easily and the moment is gone….

BEAN AND CHARLIE MAKE SLEEP LOOK SO GOOD

BEAN AND CHARLIE MAKE SLEEP LOOK SO GOOD

….an interesting photo does NOT have to be in focus, or even have the best light…
sometimes that is exactly what MAKES it interesting and beautiful.

5. LOOKING UP….
       There are an abundance of talented  Pet Photographers online….Alicia SkinnerJosh Solar of Banana Abby (Abby is his Bassett Hound…hence the “banana”, Florida Photographer- Emilee Fuss,  Local girl – Michelle at Gray Dog Photography, Kim and Sarah at BARK Pet Photography, Kelly at Mountain Dog Photography and there are so many many many more.
I LOVE all of these photographers work and my  Hands down non action favorite pose to photograph and paint..is the dog looking up at YOU. The intention, the love is in their eyes…they just look 100% focused, you see their body behind, but the face gets top billing…and sometimes…it is even okay to show (the audience) what they are really focused on!!!
SORRY

SORRY

We love our Pets. They bring such joy to our lives.

and/or a phone!!!
Go for it.

I SURVIVED MY FIRST COLLEGE “MOVE IN” DAY

I DID IT!!!

I got my firstborn son all GRADUATED AND packed and ready and MOVED INTO his NEW home….where he will share space with a great guy from Jacksonville!

tate and hanks

I have few words of wisdom…no major epiphanies. I stayed true to my intention which was TO MAKE SURE IT WAS HIS DAY…and not about ME and my feelings…as his mother…whose son …the person she carried for 9 months and raised, nursed first with her body and then though broken bones and broken hearts and chicken pox …I did not pine over my dwindling brood…with a sister just one near behind…

NOPE – IT WAS HIS DAY!!! And I have to say…It was GREAT!!!

 

Moving in was just as you would expect…parking issues and tons of kids and parents and boxes and rubbermaid bins and mattress pads…but what I had NOT anticipated were the nearly instantaneous friendships made…I felt such a bond with these strangers…as we unloaded our individual loved ones…rolled out mattress pads…made up beds and filled refrigerators. We ditched our musings on emptying nests and smiled and welcomed the day full on…the mood was upbeat…dare I say HAPPY…like one big moving party…the excitement was palpable!!! We chatted in the elevators and made new friends in lines at lunch…we helped strangers carry boxes…and without apology we beamed at our kids and shared our collective pride in this bunch of grown children from all kinds of families who wrote their college essays on different sides of the country and the planet and who NOW will go through a major LIFE EXPERIENCE together.

Unknown-2

For sake of a better word…it was really really COOL!!!

YES I miss him

YES I wish I had more time and sometimes I just cry it goes so fast and I wish that life would slow down but it WON’T and thus…here we go!!!

LEAVING HOME AND MOVING OUT…and IN

Tomorrow is the day. The BIG day.

MOVE IN DAY at UVA

The summer was spent in preparation for THIS day… making and revising “lists”,  taking your experienced suggestions,  and compiling the beginnings of his Tate’s new DORM home. Yesterday, he and I inventoried everything, packed it up and it is all sits on our dining room table. Ready to go.

adorm

 

Tate is our first born…and such, he has weathered our inexperience at every turn. He is a trooper, patient and kind, and I have thanked him for forgiving our blunders. I know that parents say goodbye to children every day. I have seen my family and friends go through it and come out fine. And I know….we will come out fine. But this son, this boy is MY boy, I have never raised a child all the way from birth to adulthood…and then let go…it feels so unnatural and yet it feels exactly right. He is going to be great…we are close by…it could be harder on so many levels…but that does not mean that in any way shape or form…THIS is easy. It is the least EASY thing I will probably ever do.

Until next year…

There is no more to say…just many things to do. I will see you guys on the other side of this, and we can get busy doing all the things we do together. Until then…XO

MONDAY MAKEOVER – COOPER’S WHITE COLLAR BEDROOM

COOPER is so very excited, DARE I SAY THRILLED….to be getting his own room for the first time in his life…and has been coming to me with architectural RENDERINGS and drafts and drawings of his NEW IMPROVED room ….he is a boy after my own heart!

COOPER'S COLORS: BENJAMIN MOORE - CHANTILLY LACE, GRAPHITE, BLUE DENIM AND HORIZON

Decorating his room takes a departure from my usual palate of pastels and soft Beach colors…and into the world of …NEUTRALS – clean lines and natural woods and metals…

We have been “BINGE” watching “WHITE COLLAR” on Netflix and have been inspired by the the lead character Neal’s bedroom/apartment …..truth be told…”Neal” himself is a bit inspirational .

We love the mix of natural wood and grays and black…Here are our colors:

ONE WEEK – BUT WHO’S COUNTING?

I CANNOT HELP IT.

I started counting down the days…19 years ago….and now…here we are…one week left…

I love how they call it “MOVE IN “Day….

TATE

TATE

But despite my procrastination and flat-out Denial …( my husband just texted me “Does Tate need a Physical?”)…it IS happening…T minus 7 days…and counting.

I KNOW YOU WILL forgive me if I am remiss about BLOG posting …besides, my house is a  disaster, nothing to see here folks….and I cannot be bothered unpacking…maybe I will just live out of this suitcase….get rid of the dressers…you know, downsize…simplify…I promise to make up for it when the kids are back in school…after Tate “MOVES IN”…

One SYMPTOM of this  impending transition that I would like to ask you about…Is it normal to sometimes feel terribly confused…like I am truly unsure of what I am supposed to do next???

I wish I were back at the beach.

HAPPY 19TH BIRTHDAY TATE

 HAPPY 19TH BIRTHDAY TATE!!!!

Tate is the light of my life…

I used to sing him “you are my sunshine”,  he makes me crazy and laugh hysterically – often time simultaneously…AND no one has made ME yell louder or cry harder…often tears of joy, he warms my heart when I watch how GREAT he is with little kids in part because he will never stop being a kid….and he has good looks that must be some roll of the dice genetic royal flush.

Tate’s Birthday is always a most special day for me because it is the day he gave me my best gift – being a  MOM and my greatest lessons have come …. often times at his expense…and boy oh boy how I love this boy.

CHOOSING A WHITE FOR YOUR KITCHEN

 The PAINT color WHITE .
It always makes a showing and my guess is that choosing the “RIGHT WHITE” is what drives the
most
people crazy. Am I white? I mean right?
I LOVE A WHITE KITCHEN - THEY STAND THE TEST OF TIME!!!

I LOVE A WHITE KITCHEN – THEY STAND THE TEST OF TIME!!!

A FEW YEARS AGO – We wanted to update our kitchen but were not in the place to do a “GUT
REVOVATION” .
AH yes, that would have been nice, but like I always say – my greatest moments of creativity and
ingenuity has been born of a BUDGET!!!
HERE ARE SOME PHOTOS OF OUR KITCHEN WHEN WE MOVED IN
 WE PAINTED THE CABINETS AND BOUGHT SOME TIME….
THE AFTER AND BEFORE KITCHEN

THE AFTER AND BEFORE KITCHEN

The first step in our KITCHEN RENOVATION was to replace the cabinet doors...( 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

….somehow I knew that if the Doors and Drawer fronts were updated….the lines cleaner…more contemporary – I knew that YEARS could be taken off our 50-year-old kitchen…

And so we began. 

Stage one of the facelift involved installing new cabinet doors and drawer fronts. The old cabinets were installed in 1967, but the ORIGINAL FOOTPRINT  WORKED and to tear them all out, only to replace in the SAME PLACE – would not be a wise use of our dollars. WE decided to replace the doors and drawers with a 1″ overlay, almost covering entirely the boxes and making them look like almost new. I researched doors and carpenters online and settled on a great guy in Kentucky. Hunter’s woodworking. Ask for Charlie. He has the patience of a saint!
Measuring out the doors and drawers was huge undertaking, especially for me, but after much obsessive measuring and check-double checking, I got it done, the numbers sent off and the doors were made.

KITCHEN

KITCHEN

While measuring each door and drawer was tedious work – it paled in comparison to

choosing the RIGHT WHITE color for the cabinets!!!!!

BENJAMIN MOORE - KITCHEN CABINET WHITES: - CHANTILLY LACE, CLOUD NINE, CLOUD WHITE, DEEP IN THOUGHT, GLACIER WHITE, MARSCAPONE, MOUNTAIN PEAK WHITE, SIMPLY WHITE AND WHITE DOVE

BENJAMIN MOORE – MY FAVORITE KITCHEN CABINET WHITES: – CHANTILLY LACE, CLOUD NINE, CLOUD WHITE, DEEP IN THOUGHT, GLACIER WHITE, MARSCAPONE, MOUNTAIN PEAK WHITE, SIMPLY WHITE AND WHITE DOVE

MOONLIGHT WHITE

MOONLIGHT WHITE

ONE MORE – MOONLIGHT WHITE was a close runner up had a grayer undertone.

THE other Colors I tried were: “GLACIER WHITE”, (too grayish (FOR ME),  “CHANTILLY LACE” ( a GREAT “PERFECT WHITE” but I wanted a bit more depth in the kitchen) but it is gorgeous and I ended up using it on ALL my interior trim,  “ SIMPLY WHITE” ( I LOVE but has a gold/yellow undertone – making it perfect for our HOUSE exterior which is where we used it), “MARSCAPONE” was ALMOST perfect but still a tad too yellowish – white, “DEEP IN THOUGHTalmost, but too dark. “WHITE DOVE”, “CLOUD WHITE” AND CLOUD NINE” were all very very CLOSE to perfect  ,  but in the end their undertones did not work.

What I came to realize is that in my 130 year old house, a too white white looked incredibly out-of-place, like it landed there from outer space. But too “yellowed” look contrived and old….I needed an in-between clean white – with a very neutral undertone.

SAMPLES!

SAMPLES! ALWAYS TRY YOUR SAMPLES OUT IN THE ROOM!!

Might as well pile a bunch of money on this counter…but I finally figured it out,

CARE TO Guess which one I chose?

THE TIPPING POINT WAS A SUGGESTION  BY “TRUE COLOUR EXPERT”  MARIA KILLAM WHO RECOMMENDED “MOUNTAIN PEAK WHITE”   AS THE PERFECT WHITE  WHEN PLACED NEXT TO  WHITE SUBWAY TILE WHICH I KNEW I WANTED TO EVENTUALLY USE FOR THE BACK SPLASH.

MOUNTAIN PEAK WHITE

MOUNTAIN PEAK WHITE CABINETS

MOUNTAIN PEAK WHITE CABINETS

I INSTALLED THE SUBWAY TILE MYSELF, BORROWING THE TILE CUTTER FROM A FRIEND.

IT DOES WORK GREAT WITH THE SUBWAY TILE!

CHOOSING COLOR CAN BE A DAUNTING EXPERIENCE AND CHOOSING A WHITE COLOR CAN TAKE DAUNTING TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL…AND YOU WANT ALL OF THE COLORS TO PLAY NICE WITH EACH OTHER!!!!

BENJAMIN MOORE: MOUNTAIN PEAK WHITE, GOSSAMER BLUE, STONINGTON GRAY, OCEAN AIR

BENJAMIN MOORE: MOUNTAIN PEAK WHITE, GOSSAMER BLUE, STONINGTON GRAY, OCEAN AIR – KITCHEN COLORS NEED TO PLAY WELL WITH EACHOTHER AND LEAVE ROOM FOR ALL OF THE COLOR THAT FILLS A KITCHEN WITH LIFE!

TAKE THE TIME YOU NEED AND SPEND THE LITTLE BIT EXTRA $$$ TO TRY SAMPLES…TAKING GREAT CARE TO PAY ATTENTION TO GRAY, BLUE AND YELLOW UNDERTONES. THE UNDERTONES ARE WHERE IT IS AT…AND WHILE THEY MAY BE SUBTLE IN A SAMPLE…BUT WHEN YOU MULTIPLY IT BY A WHOLE ROOM THEY CAN DOMINATE THE SPACE….

GOOD LUCK!!!

FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME lsdevito@gmail.com with any color questions – I will do my best to help!!!
