Playing with cowboys and army guys
OMG, have I had fun today playing with other people's toys.
My son Stephen, a former Army Ranger, and his girlfriend Rhonda came over this afternoon and he put together the army tableau for me. They both held the flashlights to help me light the scene and take some pictures. How often does a mother get to play army with her 30 year old son?
Learning how to light the cowboy and his horse was an experience. It took me 4 hours and 5 different lights to determine that the size of the light worked better when it was scaled to the size of the toy. Obviously, I'm a slow learner.
I have about 5 other 'scenes' ready to photograph. Sure wish I didn't have to stop and cook supper. It would be so much more fun to play!
