Girl Scout Cookies!
The Husbanator and I decided to file our taxes early…which meant receiving our tax returns early…which meant shopping from my wish list this month! And, guess what arrived today…my Canon Speedlite 430EX II. I could hardly wait to get home and practice. 

Fortunately, I had a willing test subject – my girl scout cookie order. Oh boy…two of my favorite things in the same room…my camera and a box (or six boxes) of cookies!

Kitty Paw decided to settle down, so she also got to experience my new speedlite.  If you look closely, you’ll see my reflection in her eyes. I bounced the light off the wall behind me. I’m not sure how I’ve gone all winter without it. 

By the way, these are SOOC shots – I only added my watermark and a thin black border. My next goal…focal points.

    All I have to say is: YAY for Speedlites and Kitty Paw!! I have a lot of reflections of my camera & flash in Piper’s and my cat’s eyes, it’s a cool effect.
