It’s having a little bit of an identity crisis…

another one down… almost. I think I’m going to crop the pieces down and mount them to some mat-board. It bothers me that the small chair ended up on its side… poor planning on my part. It’s alright though, because it would have to be folded anyhow to fit in the envelope so a little cropping shouldn’t be  an issue.

one more to go.

random updates…

Just a few things I’m currently working on…self prtrait, ear.

(Yet another) Self portrait. This is in just the beginning stages. Yes, its a wonky cell phone picture again… My camera is busy with another project at the moment. (See below.) I thought I was going to try this in pastels, but somehow I just kept continuing on in pencil… We’ll see what happens, maybe I’ll try both.

This is going to be a series of water drop/splash photos… the set up was pretty tricky for this one. I ended up with a baking pan since none of my bowls were wide or deep enough for the lenses I have and I couldn’t get quite the right distance away. Seems the combo of this bread pan and my 55-200mm lens and a couple of clamp lights are doing the trick… but its tough to get that lens to move fast enough to catch the action.

Cupcakes!


Cupcakes!

Originally uploaded by F.Scala

More rain today… so I made some cupcakes! Here’s three tasty cupcakes, made for Ashley’s birthday. I made more than three of course, but these three didn’t fit the cupcake boxes I found at Target, so they’re staying behind for pictures (and for me to eat!) Chocolate cake with whipped vanilla icing, and purple sprinkles, Ashley’s favorite color.

I’m very happy with these, as the swirls on top actually came out right. Turns out I needed a bigger icing tip.
