beafunmum Flickerings of a migraine this evening. Struggled to do all the night jobs while keeping a lid on it...but managed to throw mince, zucchini & carrot on a plate with a side of 2 ingredient flat bread. It looks horrible but the kids were actually thrilled! Ha! Now I'm dosed up in meds and am about to sleep. #widn 2d

beafunmum I've got a totally professional set up peoples. Baha. #bafm_behindthescenes 6d
  •   katepickle That's actually a totally genius set up! 6d
  •   kirrad85 Love it! 6d
  •   rhubarbphotography Lol! That's a pretty good effort! Well done. If you turn it all around you will be able to take advantage of that lovely light coming in from the left of your image (behind your little studio) 6d
  •   beafunmum @rhubarbphotography I tried that but there was too much shadow on the back of the box from the subject. How could I minimise that? 6d
  •   rhubarbphotography You need something to bounce some light down from above, a simple piece of white card/paper might suffice. Alternatively, create a curved background for it, like a piece of white card laying flat on the ground with the far bed curved up behind your object, against the chair perhaps. Keeping your object as get from the back of the box will help too. Having said that, if you got the results you wanted then you need not bother changing what you have set up as it worked. I'm more than happy to draw you some diagrams to show you what I mean, you are welcome to email me and I'll happily to help @beafunmum 6d
  •   rhubarbphotography far *end* not bed!! 6d
  •   rhubarbphotography *happily to help* lol sounds like I've had a few!!! 6d
  •   beafunmum @rhubarbphotography haha. Thank you. 6d

beafunmum She asked me if she would be ready. Ready for what, I asked. Ready for 'the world'. You have everything you need: strength of character, self-discipline, integrity, discernment, faith, kindness, love. #portrait 7d

beafunmum There's a small story behind these raft boats. During the week, my husband researches things to do as a family on the weekend. He loves watching sailing and so come Saturday, we are going to go into Auckland to see the yachts coming in from the Volvo Ocean race. This race takes the boats around the world. It started in Spain, leg 1 Spain to South Africa, leg 2 South Africa to Abu Dhabi, leg 3 Abu Dhabi to China, leg 4 is China to Auckland. 5 legs to go after Auckland to finish. They have been sailing for 18 days so far.
I was thinking it would be fun for the kids to sail their own boats in the ocean too, and we made our own.
It's fun to couple interests, family experiences and play together.
