Pipe Dream #65: To Be A Better Setter

I’ve told you about Lem before. Fabulous photographer, excellent cousin, stunning beauty. The list goes on.

I was privileged to take a few photos of her before I left for Jolly Old England. What a doll she is.

Unfortunately, we had a limited time in which to shoot, and the lights were getting dim. Well, I guess that is not the unfortunate part—her settings were awesome. The more disappointing part is that I don’t know enough about my settings to take really excellently lit photographs.

We made the best of the situation, though, and had a great time experimenting with lighting and settings. Lots of experimenting. Hers were better. I have no idea how she got and ISO of 400 at this stage of dusk. What a gal.

Look at that face.

My day is vastly improved,


P.S. It is my lifelong dream to be good at volleyball. The title of this blog just reminded me.

    Jolly Old England – what a phrase! I love it. And what a coincidence! I was just popping over to your blog to tell you that there is a gorgeous picture of you on Lem’s blog! Perfectly stunning. And here you have pictures of her on yours! Lovely. Hope England is being mind-blowingly wonderful to you.
    Cheers (a fitting English sign off? :p),
