Site Update - Taking Photos

Light is from flash pointing away from the buns into a sheet of gold, reflective material.

Combination of ambient light from the window with a little help from flash pointed a the wall to Gus'es right and the photog's left.
Gus is between the light from the window and the camera. No flash here, only what the window gave us.

Greetings, Everybunny!

A while back, our friends Alyse and Dave asked about tips for taking better bunny pictures.

If you have any suggestions, please do tell.

Here's what we do and it works - most of the time:

  1.     Get as low as you can to the bun level
  2.     Get close to that mouf and eye
  3.     Keep the light source behind you or to the side

The rest is icing on the carrot cake, and the only limits are your creativity and budget. We think getting creative is most important, as long as it does not put anybunny in danger. As you experiment with different scenarios and lighting conditions, you'll discover very quickly where the limits of your equipment are.

We try to get a little below the eye level of the bunn. That's hard on the knees, and it's a workout. Then we try to catch their eyes or moufs and let them fill the frame.

Whenever possible, we work with the ambient light or some fixed light source. We try not to abuse the flash.

Good equipment is helpful but not always an option. We have an old DSLR camera (Nikon D3200) with a couple of specialized lenses. The one we use most often is a fixed length, Nikkor 35mm lens. The best thing about it is the f/1.8 f-stop. The trick is getting it to focus precisely on the desired spot. The buns like to move about a lot, and it can be challenging to keep up with them. The f/1.8 makes things even more tricky. Because of its shallow depth of field, it's easy to accidentally focus somewhere between the eye and the mouf and both end up fuzzy.

Then there's the whole business of working over the pics in a photo editor, but that's a story for another time.

So if you have any tips, questions or pics you would like to share and tell everybunn about, we would love to hear from you. Of course, we're always looking for disapproval, but you already know that.

Espresso, Charlie, and Gus Update

You pest! I hid in the tunnel for a reason!

Hellos, Everybunny!

We have another, groovy, cloudy, and rainy weekend on our paws. Hoomin, of course, decided to serve the saaaaalads late. Then he pestered us with the clicky thing. Thump! But, the nomes are OK. He said he took enough pics today to have some for tomorrow's update. Oh, he thinks he'll make that post before tomorrow midnight. Oh, the laughs! Well, good luck with that. That's what I say.

So hurry up now, hoomin. You still owe us extra headrubs. Because it's rainy, that's why!

We'll keep you posted,

Site Update

Good Evening, Everybunny!

It's five till Midnight, and we might not make with the post. It's been a long day. Our hoomin complete setting up profiles for us on https://www.BunSpace.com

Thank you, Ken, for that idea. Hopefully, we'll make more friends.

Here we are:

Espresso: https://www.bunspace.com/view_bunny?bunid=29204

Gus: https://www.bunspace.com/view_bunny?bunid=29215

Charlie: https://www.bunspace.com/view_bunny?bunid=29216

Anyway, our hoomin knocked out a bunch of questions in the prep book again. At this rate, he should be able to take the written test in about a month. We'll keep our paws crossed and see how he does, right?

We'll keep you posted,

Espresso, Charlie, and Gus Update

You missed another one, didn't you?
Eh, hoomin. If you flunk, maybe you can be a salad chef apprentice, no?

Greetings, Everybunny!

It's been a lovely, slow week. The hoomins gave bonding another try. Gus and I tried it in a small pen. I objected, and it turned out to be a short session.

At nights, I hang out with the salad making hoomin. He reads and scribbles, and I nom and give him snarky looks until we both get worn out.

Gus is doing very well, and I hear he jumps on the bed every morning to check on the hoomins. Charlie is best friends with both of us. I don't know how she does it.

We'll keep you posted,

Site Update - The Hunt For Disapproval

Evening, Everybunny!

The plan for tonight is simple - reach out for some disapproval. We're still trying to adjust to not working on bun fiction on Sundays. The bookwork is moving along, yet it stirs up all sorts of soul searching. But that's a whole different post, an episode even.

Of course, in the meantime, our hoomin tries to catch us with an approving look on our moufs after we clean up our salads.

We'll keep you posted,

Espresso, Charlie, and Gus Update

Greetings, Everybunny!

The summer snack sure hit the spot:
  1.     A treat made of SARX, shaped into a heart,
  2.     Shredded Kale
  3.     A touch of shredded red cabbage
  4.     Wheatgrass
  5.     A bit of shredded carrot
  6.     Topped off with a raspberry
That's the good news. The bad news is that the hoomins promised me another ride in the baftub with that little guy. I don't growl at him as much; I just don't have the time for him. He's here, whatever. Charlie hangs out with him from time to time. Whatever again. I'm just not a friends making kind of guy, you know. The trouble is, I'll probably mellow out over time. Sheesh! Don't tell 'em that!
We'll keep you posted,

Site Update - by Gus

Greetings, Everybunny!

So, pardon me, my mouf is full, but ..., as I'm noming my snack salaaaad, the hoomin is sitting down to update the Evacuation page. We received a little bit of good feedback, and we'll make the appropriate changes. The latest stuff should be in by morning.

The "bookwork" is going OK, not great but well enough. Hoomin says by next week this time, the first pass through all of the questions should be finished.

What about all these house projects? Right, I get the whip ready directly. We'll keep you posted,

Espresso, Charlie, and Gus Update

Greetings, Everybunny!

Ahhh, the bun days of summer are here. We're keeping cool, having contests of who can pee the most outside of the bit in the art room or how fast we can trash the place. Sigh, the hoomin keeps serving salads, veg snacks, and head rubs. We hang out a lot with him during the evening when he grumbles about some questions in a big, thick book. He says he can't wait to line our bins with it.

Well, we don't care as long as he keeps those snack bags handy. He wants some peace and quiet - that's a treat. That's right.

We'll keep you posted,
