bearer of the nephylim
The pious maiden, Naamah, the lovely sister of Tubal-cain, led the angels astray with her beauty, and from her union with Shamdon sprang the devil Asmodeus. She was as shameless as all the other descendants of Cain, and whose beauty and sensual charms tempted the angels from the path of virtue.

Jewelry photography gig
The client was very specific about how the products were to be layed out and she even supplied the props (vase, paper, etc). I took a few with a black background and some more plain backgrounds to try to make the colors 'pop' more. I had a lot of difficulty getting the lighting just right. Natural lighting ended up being the best option as others were tending to cast either a bluish hue or were eiter washing out the colors or reflecting too much. There was a real problem with shadowing with the earings on the ribbon pictures and the vase had some challenges due to the depth of field issue. If one earing was in focus, the other often was not. The macro setting offered the best close up shots, but the narrow depth of field was a problem as I stated earlier plus it was triggering the flash, which, of course, was washing out and reflecting highly.
Wide angle lens
remote shutter release
that will definately set me up a bit better for anything I should need to ever shoot. I really want the telephoto first, but after looking at Steve's pictures, I'm wondering if I should pick up a wide angle first.

Every time a defrocked pedophile priest gets murdered in prison an angel gets his wings
Fox 9 outta Boston reports:
Video of Prison Guards Responding to Inmate Killing Pedophile Priest Appears on Internet
Here's a little insight into the Priest and the killer:
"Geoghan, 68, was serving a nine- to 10-year sentence for groping a 10-year-old boy, but had been accused of molesting as many as 150 boys. His case helped spark the clergy sex abuse scandal worldwide after church personnel records released under court order revealed that the Boston Archdiocese transferred Geoghan from parish to parish even after allegations of abuse surfaced.
Druce claimed he was chosen by God to kill pedophiles and unsuccessfully used an insanity defense at his trial.
In August 2005, the Herald obtained a video that showed Druce re-enacting the slaying in which he strangled Geoghan with a pair of socks. Druce then climbed on his cot and jumped off repeatedly to show how he crushed convicted molester's body."
And for your enjoyment, some bonus material!
