Weekend #1 – the Swedish Chef

Posted by djw209 on January 11, 2010

Many of my photography friends, Jess and Tracey and my cousin Pam, are doing (or have already done) a 365 photography project. Basically they are taking pictures every day and posting those pictures everyday. I am envious that they are doing this project – it’s something that I would love to do so I become better acquainted with my camera and learn lots more about photography in general. It would also force me to pick up my camera weekly.

But I don’t have the time or daylight to be able to do this project the way I would want to.

So I’ve decided that I would do a modified version of this project – to take and post pictures every weekend.

Now I know that we’ve just passed the 2nd weekend of 2010, but I didn’t think of doing this modified project until friday night.

So without further delay, here is the first weekend in 2010’s picture:

Canon EOS 50D; AV Mode; ISO 400; f/4; 1/2 sec; flash did not fire

It looks like I succeeded in getting some bokeh effect in this picture! I wasn’t trying for that and I didn’t see that the first 20 times I looked at this picture, but I am certainly happy that it happened!

This is our 2009 Hallmark Ornament – Danny loves it, me, not so much. But it makes Danny laugh so hard and that makes me love the ornament. See, this ornament has sound to it – and that is what makes Danny laugh so hard. EVERY time Danny walked past the tree, he had to make the ornament talk.

I can’t tell you what the Swedish Chef says, but it makes Danny giggle endlessly. But for me, that makes this year’s ornament worth all the money in the world.

    Great photo and I love the bokeh effect in the background. Now I am curious as to what the chef is saying…

    Great shot – perfect lighting and love the bokeh! I think the weekend photo challenge sounds like the perfect solution! Good luck! (PS: Thanks for the link!)
