Posing and Lighting Workshop!

If you don't already know about creativeLive, you just have to check them out, ASAP! They offer free LIVE workshops and let me just say how AWESOME this site is!!!

Today I sat in on the first day of Bambi Cantrell's 3 day Posing and Lighting Workshop and I never dreamed I would learn so much in just one day! Seriously folks....Bambi is my new photography hero! She is absolutely brilliant with posing her models and I don't know about y'all, but that's the one thing I struggle with the most. I have a feeling posing will be a lot easier for me now, after watching Bambi in action and listening intently, to all of her careful instructions. One of the things she taught us, was how to pose the subject in a way that is flattering, slenderizing and natural looking or as Bambi would say, "Believable!" Oh my goodness, she taught us so much more and it's all still spinning around in my brain, as I type this post. Can you even imagine 7 hours of priceless instruction on posing and lighting? It was fantastic and I can't wait until tomorrow's class, in fact I'm still so excited from today, that I can't even go to sleep. lol I mean I posted about it 3 times on my Portrait Of My Heart facebook page and also tweeted several times today too, haha. Hmmm....I might be just a little excited! :)

Here is a short video I found on youtube tonight that I thought I'd share...

Helpful Hint ~ Prevent Avacados From Turning Brown!

I found this tip on preventing avacados from turning brown and just had to share it!

***Don't forget to pause my music player before playing the video!

I gave it a try and I have to tell really works! 

This is 24 hours later and my avacado looks exactly the way it did, when I put it in the container with the red onion, the day before.  It didn't turn brown at all! woot woot (*note:  the brown you see on the avacado was already there when I cut it open!)  Isn't that cool?  Ok, well I'M EXCITED because this works better than any method I've ever tried!  I don't know what the red onion does, but it works like a charm and I can't wait to see how many days it will keep my avacados nice and green.  Hope you all enjoy this little hint.....give it a try.  :)
