I am starting this new blog for the Project 365 that I am doing via Picablog. For Christmas Dave really really spoiled me with a new Canon EOS 7D and a photography course later this month to learn how to use this new fabulous camera. And I am thinking that doing Project 365 will help me expand my photography skills over the course of the year and document my life on a daily basis. The theme this is week is "Goodbye Holidays". And the technique this week is the bokeh technique, which can you learn about on their blog here. I have yet to experiment with the bokeh technique, I hope to be able to play around with my porch Christmas lights some evening this week. Right now we have a series of lake effect snow squalls and flurries going on, might have to wait a day or two for the weather to clear. Joys of winter in Ontario.
So, here is my Day 1 photo. Bumblebee's head ornament that Daniel received from his godfather, Greg. My tradition is when I take the Holiday Decorations down, I take photos of all the new tree ornaments we received over the holidays. My hope is to do a book for each child with photos and stories behind each ornament they have. Back to the picture, I love how the his eyes light up when you press the button to hear the sound effects. I tried to capture the glow of the eyes as best as I could.
