My wife and I love movies.  I’m more the Action Adventure guy.  She is more the romantic gal.  As you can imagine it can be hard to find a compromise, however over the years we’ve been dating and now married, we’ve learned that we don’t watch movies so much for the movie – as much as we do for the experience.  Take this photo I took for example.  That’s my wife with a Extra Large bucked of popcorn from AMC theaters in Germantown Maryland.  What you may not be able to tell in that photo is that we are actually sitting on our couch at our home.

You see, for both of us – we are looking for a particular experience that this episode in our lives revealed.

The situation was we couldn’t afford to go see a movie but we still wanted to have the movie experience.  For me, all I needed was my 40″ Sony TV, Xbox 360 to rent the movie, and 2.1 Boss Speakers… Oh yeah… Turn the lights out, crank up the volume and I’m good to go.  My wife on the other hand…

For her, popcorn is everything.  And no… It can’t just be the pop secret bag in the Microwave.  Because I love my wife so much, I got in my car and drove 5 miles to the AMC theater – Ordered a extra large bucket of popcorn ($13.78!!) and brought it home so we could watch our $5 rental.

It was great.  Do you have any MUSTS for a good movie experience?

Wanted to try something new today.  Went to HomeDepo and got a sheet of glass.  Came home, placed that glass about 2 feet off the ground and put some white poster board under the glass. Then took two lamps and shown them on the poster board.  Sliced some Oranges together and this was the best picture I got!  I’m pretty pleased with it.  It is not as sharp as I would like because I had to hand hold it due to the fact my tripod could not hold the weight of my cam facing straight down.

I plan to do this again with other fruit and play around with different exposures – Nonetheless, this is a great start with a good concept.
