Photography and Editing Details

:bulletpink: Cameras:
-Canon SX130 IS (digital point-and-shoot)
-Nikon D3000 (DSLR)
-Nikon D3100 (DSLR)

A few of these photos were taken with my first digital camera, which was a Kodak EasyShare. It broke at the bottom of my backpack before heading out to a school football game freshman year. ;n;

:bulletpink: Lenses:
-50 mm NIKKOR VR
-18-55 mm NIKKOR VR
-Nikon 55-200 mm f/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Autofocus Zoom

For editing, I use Photoshop CS6, and I get my effects from lieveheersbeestje (which I recommend, because they work nicely and most of them are free), as well as a few from EliseEnchanted . I also use, because it's a little easier to understand at times, and it only costs around $4.95 US dollars a month to get all of the effects.


Safe Animal Rescue Organizations to Donate to If You Choose

If you love all animals, and would like to consider donating to help rescue situations happen for animals in need, here is The Gentle Barn, which rehabilitates and gives sanctuary to all abused to severely abused animals. Their mission is to teach people kindness and compassion to animals, each other, and our planet. ->

If you have a sensitive heart in particular to cavies (guinea pigs), and would like to donate to the rescuing of these fuzzy little guys and gals, here is the Australian Cavy Sanctuary. Their mission is to educate the community on the correct care and humane treatment of guinea pigs, a commitment to raising awareness and working to change the stereotypical low valued view guinea pigs have endured, to supply aid and sanctuary to ill, injured, neglected, pregnant and found guinea pigs, to re-home guinea pigs appropriately through adoption procedures maintained by the operation of shelters managed by ACS volunteers and staff, to take whatever steps are necessary within the law to improve the quality of life, value and respect of all guinea pigs and to be the voice for those that are trapped in situations of abuse and mistreatment, and to support and actively endorse all aspects of animal welfare. This is their website ->…

I do not own either of these organizations, but me and my family do donate. They are very kind-hearted people, and it's always nice to see the pictures of the rescued animals doing better than before. These organizations are safe and trusting, and if you are looking for places to donate to, I completely recommend these two. The donations go to the food for the animals and help keep the businesses going.

new addition to ThePiggieWheek

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 11, 2014, 8:59 AM
  • Mood: Joy

Our family now has a new piggie that has been added to our piggie family (: he is a white, red, and a little bit of black Abyssinian Peruvian mix. I will try and load pictures of him this weekend when I get the chance. Ziggy has already become good friends with him. (Tiberius is still working on it)

My name is Rachel.

Ziggy and Oscar are mine, and Tiberius is my mom's.

This page is just for their cute little pictures. :heart:

Ziggy is blonde and white, and he is almost 5 years old. He loves to lay around and sleep in his over-sized igloo. He lays in his bowl while eating because he is very lazy. His favourite food is... well... just about anything!

Tiberius is cream, orangey red, and brown, and he is two and a half years old. He often hops on the top of his igloo to watch the tellie with his cockatiel friends. He fusses as his form of talking, though he's a sweetie and doesn't mean anything by it, and his favourite food is mainly his sweeter snacks.

Oscar is red, white, and black. He is the newest member of our piggie family and therefore doesn't have much we can write about him yet (besides his rescue story). He previously belonged to a family I babysit for. The mother was waiting in her car at the college she worked at, and saw a man shoving a box into the dumpster. She waited until the man left and then checked the trash to find emaciated little Oscar shoved in the box. She rescued him, and would've continued to keep him had it not been for her husband's orders to PCS. Therefore, the family decided to give him to us, as they knew we had two others that we loved very much. So far, he eats just about anything you give him and he poses perfectly for the camera like he knows exactly what to do. His actual age is unknown, but based on his teeth, we're guessing he is also about two and a half years old.

<NOTE>I am so appreciative of each and every favourite I get on these pictures of our boys, but I don't always have time to individually thank each of you. Sometimes I won't come on for a couple days to even a couple weeks, and it's too overwhelming to thank everyone. BUT. I personally promise to be sure to individually thank you or reply to you if you +watch this account or comment on any picture. You guys are awesome, and I'm so happy that I have the chance to share with you our little babies. I hope they bring a smile to your face like they do to ours. :heart:

You can also find me on Instagram! It's a personal account, so not all of the photos will be my guinea pigs or my photography, but I will load pictures of these cuties onto my page while I'm loving on them and such. :D If you would like to see my boys through a phone camera, follow me at _r_n_t_ :heart:

If you would like to check out my other photography, check out my OTHER Instagram @theeeuphoriccat . I post predominantly self-portraits and nature photos. ^__^
