POTD - TiVo

What did I do before TiVo came into my life? It has to be my favorite convenience. It's been getting a break recently since most shows are done until fall. The break is well-deserved after the overdrive that I put it into by TiVoing any wedding related show for the past year. But without it, I'd never get to see LOST... by 10pm my eyes are drooping and even the vision of Matthew Fox on a desert island can't keep them open!

This has been my most challenging POTD so far. I know, I just started last week, but still. =) Besides the fact that our bedroom is small, the lighting in there is the worst. It's like a dungeon. There's only 1 window, which doesn't even lead outside... it opens to a screened-in porch. And all our lamps are those asian-style paper lamps. I had to use ISO 800 & the SS was still a struggle. CC and advice are always welcome!!

LoL I know what you mean! I have my computer set up to record TV shows if I'm going to miss them and I couldn't live without it either! I'm a LOST watcher too btw, but I was a little hurt when Charlie died (he was my favorite). It made my tummy hurt LoL...Is that too involved??

And I'm sorry I can't help with your lighting issues...i suffer from the same problem in my own house!

I have never had a tivo before but I have heard cool things about it. We have a recorder on our TV so im not sure what the difference is with the tivo and the recorder on our TV. The angle on the 3rd one is cool.

I totally get it! For the first time ever, I just got DVR when we moved. How did I ever live without this?

You know...I've never considerd this, but have been thinking twice about it. I actually like that first pic and just the symbol. It made me look twice to figure out what it was.

I think these shots are great! That's one of the things I love about POTD--it gets you shooting in lots of different environments and lighting. Great practice, imo!!

About the 85--yes I do love it. It's a SWEET lens. That said, I don't use it as often as I'd like because it is difficult to get everything in the pic with that focal length. I find myself using the 50 much more often. I don't regret buying it, I just wish I could use it more. HTH!

I think you did pretty well with the lighting. I struggle with the same thing, I always have to move things in front of the window to get the shot, of course, not possible here:) Great job though::)
