Week 42 – A Teen Birthday

15-21 Oct ’11

While we were away, Jake turned thirteen.  We’d planned his party for a couple of days after we returned home.

Cake and candles

The request was for a Brooklyn Blackout cake to celebrate this important milestone.

Jacob's 13th Brithday

F-stop                     f/4.5
Exposure time      1/100sec
ISO speed              ISO-500
Focal length         50mm


The boys were in a hurry to get to the eating, so I didn’t have much time to set up this shot.  I haven’t quite managed to get sufficient depth of field to have Jake’s face completely in focus. Dang!

The Youth of Today

Our country’s future.  Is there any hope?  LOL

Birthday cake

Party boys

Settings all the same as the shot above.

And again insufficient depth to get everyone in focus.  Something I need to work on, but not with a group of hungry boys as subjects.

So now I am the mother of two teenagers.  Yikes.
