Sweet Sixteen

LITTLE MAN. My not-so-little brother turned sixteen on 1/3 and we went to Fish Market on Harbor Drive the night before to celebrate. A simple celebration complete with an Asian cake with fruit (very different from fruitcake connotations as this was quite tasty) from 99 Ranch, now he's all grown up *tear* Mom's a bit internet-camera-shy right now, so this silly picture of my Dad wearing the Fish Market bib should suffice :D hahaha!

Taking pictures in raw and actually editing them was a pain. The process for editing photos 5000x3000 pixels or so took 3x as long to get through my usual process. I need to figure out a workflow or some trick to make this go by faster or I'll never get off the computer. My old Lightroom presets also seem to have different effects on jpeg versus raw files and they're not as cool. If the photos don't look that much better after an outfit post, I'm going back to nooby jpeg for the sake of simplicity xD Is it just me, or do the photos actually look grainier? o_o If any of you photography buffs are reading this, halp!

Hope that your brother had a lovely birthday! Sweet sixteen is really no joke, haha. I remember when I used to have cakes like that for my birthdays and I've been trying to persuade my mum to let me have one again for the past three years ^^ For your photos, maybe try some noise reduction while you're processing them on the computer? If I can remember from photo class, the camera automatically does some adjustments while shooting in JPEG, while in RAW, it leaves it alone. Have a great Thursday!

Happy birthday to your little brother!!!! =) He's so young still! lol only 16! :p My brother turned 21 last year, we're 4 yrs apart. I love Asian cakes from 99 Ranch. Something about the fluffy cream that just gets me. I love it! I'd go and buy a cake right now because i live very close to the market.

We don't have many family traditions because we're all scattered apart but we used to do the whole buffet thing when we all lived at home :p Asians and their buffets!
