So thankful for my amazing clients! Thank you for letting me be of service!

“Rachel really showed up for us!  It was a challenging and nerve racking adventure, but she went above and beyond.  The buyer’s agent was new, and needed handholding.  The buyers kept changing loans, and pushing all the way to the end.  Rachel remained steadfast and got the deal done and closed on time!  Whew!  She really knows her business and was there for us at every turn. No one wants a messy deal, but if you end up in one it’s great to have Rachel on your team.  She’s patient, considerate, effective and professional all the way!” -Shell Tain

I am so thankful to be of service to you and your family, Shell. It was an honor working with you!

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson Go Camping

When Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went camping, they pitched their tent under the stars and then went to sleep.

Sometime in the middle of the night Holmes woke Watson up and said, “Watson, look up at the stars, and tell me what you see.”

Watson replied, “I see millions and millions of stars.”

Holmes said, “And what do you deduce from that?”

Watson replied, “If there are millions of stars, and if even a few of those have planets, it’s quite likely there are some planets like Earth out there. And if there are a few planets like Earth out there, there might also be life.”

Holmes responded, “Watson, are you mad? It means that somebody stole our tent.”

A Man and his Soup

A man walks into a restaurant, sits at his usual table, and orders the usual: chicken noodle soup.

The waiter sets the soup in front of him, stands back to watch him enjoy it, but the man just sits there. “Is there something wrong?” the waiter asks.

“I can’t eat this soup,” the man replies.

“Is it too hot?” the waiter asks.

“No.”

“Too cold?”

“No.”

The waiter calls for the maître d’ and the chef, who each ask the same questions: “Too hot?” “Too cold?”

“No, no.”

The chef finally says, “Sir, I will taste the soup myself. Where is the spoon?”

Says the man: “A-ha!”

Some tips and tricks for you!

Tips for Outdoor Photography

Memories last longer when caught on camera. Some occasions call for a splurge on a professional photographer. Others just call for a few snapshots to document a fun day at the lake or at a ball game. With a little planning and a digital camera, you can be snapping outdoor shots that will make your Instagram followers envious.

Pay attention to your ISO. The lower the ISO, the less sensitive the camera is to the light. For full sun and no shade, try an ISO of 100. If it’s overcast or you’re in the shade, turn it up to 400. If the sun is setting and you’re losing light, try an ISO of 640-800.

Use the flash. Depending on whether you want your subject back-lit or front-lit, using the flash can improve the results. Turning your flash down creates a more natural-looking shot while a strong flash can make your subject appear harsh. Purposefully under-exposing the background and bursting flash on your subject will create a focal point and enhance the mood of the photo.

Use natural light. Take advantage of the sun by allowing your subject to face the light. About 60 minutes after dawn and before dusk are known as the “golden hour” when light is optimal for shooting.

Check your white balance. Experimenting with the white balance before shooting allows you to color correct before editing. Depending on the light source and weather conditions, your subject may have a blue, orange or yellow hue. Play with these settings to find your desired coloration.

Change the aperture. If you’re shooting landscape photos, you’ll want to work in f/11 through f/22, where the lens is closed tighter. When isolating subjects, you’ll prefer to work with a more shallow depth of field, so set your aperture at f/2.8 or f/4.
