When I was a kid Friday night was Love Boat and Fantasy Island night. Video stores didn't exist and neither did tivo (no cable yet either) so we were kind of at the mercy of network TV.
Fast forward 30 years...
When we are home, Friday night has traditionally been movie night, and by movie night I mean watching a DVD with a bunch of fluffy pillows and a cozy comforter tucked around me. To make getting the movies easier, we signed on with blockbuster to receive movies in the mail. It was great, at first.
Recently we have been a bit disappointed in the movie selection. There are some good movies, just not enough of them to warrant a three movie a week automatic delivery; so, I decided to put my blockbuster account on hold.
Needless to say, I've had some time and a tivo remote in my hands and I discovered a new Friday Night show called Crusoe. It is "light entertainment" set on a tropical island (does that sound familiar?)
It has a couple of handsome leading men and for us married folks the character of Crusoe is made even more desirable by his obvious passion toward, and desire to get back to his wife.
So, I admit that I have been more interested in the show than Kevin has. I am also more of a TV watcher than he is; so, there might be more to that, than say, the fact that there are sexy men but not so many women on the show.
If the lack of sexy women is an issue - it comes on right after Deal or No Deal.
Here is a link to their website - you can catch a recent episode:
Problem: You want to capture a photo of your wonderful husband (friend, sister, child...) sitting in front of a beautiful landscape; but, the light meter in your camera is making their face too dark (image left.) When you try to adjust the lighting on your subject, using the meter, the exposure is increased and background/sky is washed out.
Solution: Use your flash to fill in those dark shadows. (image right)
Notice - in the photo on right, the mountains and sky are not washed out from over exposure; however, Kevin's face is lighter.
