This is not a photo

Taken in my Portrait Photography class, a photo of our professor/photographer Rick Recard, this was my pose, lighting and my inspirational scribbling on the board. This lighting was done with a household 60 Watt light, which was an incredible lesson. I wanted a dramatic shot that drew your eye into it. I put the shadow on the camera-forward side of his face to shake it up, and did a sort of back/side lighting so I can light the board a bit. Camera was in AWB (autowhite balance) which didnt exactly balance well for a Tungsten light, but the tone worked well with his skin tone so I went with it.

The Taste of Fall

Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks are one of my favorite things. This year I found a recipe to make it, and I've found it comes out better than Starbucks. Taken @50mm

Pumpkin Spice Latte
1 cups milk
1 tablespoons canned pumpkin
1 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 shots espresso (or 1/3 cup of strong brewed coffee)

Directions: In a saucepan combine milk, pumpkin and sugar and cook on medium heat, stirring, until steaming. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and spice, transfer to a blender and process for 15 seconds until foamy, or use a milk frother, or just whisk it. Pour into a large mug. Add the espresso on top. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, or cinnamon on top.

Note: Also, I've found that to preserve a big can of pumpkin, I just dose it out by the tablespoon into an ice cube trays and freeze it, so you can enjoy a taste of Fall all year round.   (Why do I sound like a commercial)

There's No Beach in East Meadow we wen't to West Meadow. (That's not remotely funny).   I do like the panorama shot, though a panorama crop is sorta cheating because I rarely find one I don't like.  Panorama @10mm, The spikey fake donut and silhouette sunset @50mm
