Grandma’s 80th Birthday Pictures

I think you can guess what this post contains…

The outdoor shots were taken with the 85/1.8 lens, ISO 100, and aperture varying between f/2.8 and f/5.6. The indoor shots were taken with my 24-70/2.8L. I left the aperture at f/2.8 most of the time and the ISO ranged between 400 and 800.

I need to get in the habit of taking my WhiBal everywhere. I had to play around with the color temperature a little more than would have been necessary.

My grandma was surprised. I had called her earlier in the morning to tell her "happy birthday" and to feed her a bunch of B.S. about how it was so nice out, we were probably going to go to Presque Isle or something.

My uncle Bobby nearly blew it when, upon arriving at the site of the surprise party, he made a comment about how I wanted to golf with him the next day. Fortunately, my grandma didn't notice.

  1. At 80 your grandma still looks youthful. I guess that's the effect of less worries and having those cute kids around the house. They can keep you company and surely you'll end up having lots of blah blah and zero dull moments.

    By the way, the pictures look neat and beautiful. You have an eye for photography, I suppose.
