Brain Dump

Posted by Jenna, Under Uncategorized

Remember this series? I’ve been collecting loads of links but I never take the time to post them.

Ryan Brenizer

If you love reading the blogs of photographers like I do, you really should add Ryan Brenizer’s blog to your list. He does these awesome Photo of the Day posts, where he tells you what he used to create the photo in question. This one in particular blows my mind, since it was taken at night and he didn’t use any flash or other lights to create it (when you do that it’s called using ambient light). Ryan is a true master!

RAW vs JPG

I know some of you are working on understanding the difference between shooting RAW and shooting JPG. Here is a great article with pictures that help illustrate the difference between both the SOOC shots and the edited ones.

Foodie Elitism

An argument for Foodie Elitism by that crazy awesome farmer you were introduced to in Food, Inc.

Baby-led Weaning

I’m probably not the best person to talk to when it comes to baby-led weaning, because I tend to make things up as I go along. If you want to know how the informed people are doing it, click here.

Underwater Fairy Tale

Underwater photos are really tough to do. These look like they are straight out of a fairy tale. I adore them.

Creating a Budget

An absolutely fantastic post by a fellow ‘bee that breaks down how they created a budget.

Chicago Vacation Series

In This Instance is writing a series of posts called My Chicago Vacation, where she walks you through different areas of town and details what she would eat and do if she were to take a vacation there.I think even a native Chicagoan would enjoy her series!

I was suppose to have a family shoot today, but the gloomy weather caused a postponement. Now I’m going to take a break from computer time to try to give some extra attention to T1 this weekend (he just woke up from his nap) because I feel like I’ve been budgeting far too much time for Jenna Cole and That Wife lately. That Husband finished finals, so I’m hoping we can watch a movie together and eat popcorn (balsalmic!). I’m thinking we’ll watch Valkyrie or We Are Marshall. Have you seen them? Yay or nay?

I took pictures for another day-in-the-life post. Should go up next week and I think those of you without a lot of baby experience are going to feel relieved when you see how much easier it is to feed him now (he can hold his own bottle, hallelujah).

I’ve stopped losing weight and it’s frustrating. All of the comments on my food blog have been really nice though, so thank you for that!

I need to get practicing because I’m singing It Came Upon The Midnight Clear in church next weekend. What was I thinking when I agreed to sing a solo?!?!?!

I like to let T1 crawl the hallway outside our apartment door. It’s very long and it wears him out so he will take a nap. !win!

Remember how I went to Europe and then never blogged about it? I’m going to fix that. Soon.

We leave for Utah in 10 days. T1 is so excited to see my sister again.

Brain dumped. Have a great weekend!

  2. “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear” is one of my favorite Christmas songs! Good luck!

  3. If you haven’t already had your movie time, I can tell you that both of those movies are great! We Are Marshall is a feel-good movie about accomplishing against the odds. I saw Valkyrie the first time just a few weeks ago, and I cried really, really hard. It was amazing, just more violent. We own both of them.

    Have a safe trip to Utah! We’ll enjoy having you here!

  4. I’m singing a solo at my church tomorrow….I sing about once (sometimes twice) a year but it’s never any less nerve racking. Good luck, but most importantly, remember who you’re singing to :)
