Let’s see now. I had a flu shot that (lucky me!) resulted in some of the side effects they are required to warn you about. DH on the other hand had absolutely no effects. I was not amused! We have new health insurance and while I am thankful we have it, it’s a new learning curve with how it works; just when I had the old one figured out too! Some of the incentives with the new insurance are either going to make me more accountable for my health (which I sorely need) or have me putting on a tin foil hat… we shall see.
My youngest grandchild at the ripe old age of 3 now asks his dad to “Call Nana?” whenever he comes home from work. I love it but now I have to figure out conversation topics! Still working on what bucket list things to accomplish for this year but so far we’ve been rather lackadaisical about making that list. Visit Hawaii and Chicago have been contenders (quite the polar opposites huh) and the search for what new national parks to visit should begin soon.
We recently watched a YouTube video about the night skies and on February 18th there is going to be a cool celestial event where the planet mars will be seen right next to the moon. Thank goodness I caught a bunch of hand and foot warmers on sale recently!
But the biggest what’s new for 2020 is I’ve decided to get back into portraiture. DH got me a nice little off camera flash set by Magmod for Christmas that I absolutely love and I’ve been using him as my model to practice on since. Isn’t he a lucky man! I’ve got a lot to learn but it’s one of my goals for this year. I know that this, like any other photography, is a never ending practice/learning curve but if it’s worth doing then do it well!
My first effort at low key portrait photography (I thought it would be cool to try; like the vibes it gives off) with my new gear didn’t quite hit the mark. I didn’t get the lighting right and it came out more split lighting(ish) than low key but we all gotta start somewhere.
So what’s new with and for you? Any great plans or goals for this year or just taking it one day at a time?
