My Answer

I have a guess as to what Scott was using to tie his photo from yesterday into Jay'me's photo from Tuesday.

The answer is in my photo....

Nikon D40 kit lens
shutter speed 1/1250sec
aperture f/4.5
ISO 400 (because I'm an idiot and didn't change it from being inside)
natural light with gold reflector from underneath

Could it be "a birds eye view"?

This photo is of a tree that is set up in my backyard for the holiday card photo I've been working on. I got out my 6' ladder, (it was too cold for the 16' ladder that would have really gotten me a birds eye view) climbed up and snapped away.
No big mystery or difficulty with this photo, I merely changed my vantage point. Sometimes a fresh perspective is all that's needed to liven up a photo.

Stand in a new spot and check things out, you just might like it.



  1. Nice work Brandi. That is indeed the connection. I can't wait to see the real know what I mean.

  2. Beautifully shot ! That should ne an upper scale wrapping paper... So pretty and great death!

  3. There is a real vividness to the focal point that makes it feel like it pops. Almost feels like there is some HDR going on without any of its cheesiness.

  4. "Stand in the place where you live...." Great, now I'll have REM in my head all day. Thanks Sister.
