Preparing a Breyer Mini Whinnie for paint isn't the same as prepping a Stablemate (or larger scale). These guys have a few weird quirks of their own!
These are all the How-To posts I’ve written covering a variety of subjects.

A Simple Studio Setup
I’ve been meaning to translate my Facebook Gallery about Model Horse Photography Basics into a proper blog post for a while now… marry that up to my vow of finishing draft posts and here it is!
This post is about the various settings I use to photograph model horses in 1:32 (Breyer Stalemate) scale and smaller. The same things can be used for larger scales with a few tweaks. This post doesn’t cover image editing, white balances, etc. just Av, F-stops, and ISOs!
- F# — Lens Aperture, F# (F5 -> F32)
smaller number = more light, larger number = more depth of field
- Av — Shutter Speed, 1/x (1/15 -> 4)
larger number = more light
- ISO — Film Speed, ISO (100 -> 1600)
larger number = more grainy, more light
Twenty Fourteen Theme Default Look
WordPress upgraded the other day and with 4.1 came upgrades to the themes. …And like a dummy I forgot I hadn’t made my changes in a childtheme, so I upgraded without making a backup of Stylesheet (style.css) and lost all my tweaks.
So I had to go back and hunt down the changes I made, saved here for posterity (and if anyone else needed them).
