More Lighting Tests

This is another shot I took using my DIY snoot. I used the snoot as sort of a spotlight from above and added some fill from the right, well from my right, the subjects left. (I never know which is correct to say...lol.)

My Grandparents on my dad's side were from Germany and had many wonderful collectibles from Germany that they treasured. I was lucky enough to inherit a couple of my Grandma's Hummel figures. I always loved them since I was a little girl. The chubby, rosy cheeks and the youthful innocence of them warms my heart even still. I don't collect them, but I cherish the ones I have.

Hummels also remind me of Tasha Tudor, the children's book illustrator. My favorite picture book as a very little girl was "1 is One". *Sigh* The sweet gentle memories of childhood!

Coming back to AM3 after a long hiatus. I hope to be more active in the coming months.
