Number 1 Dad Beanie Baby - Pappa 2004 from Ty. Bear wearing scotch tie with number one Dad written on it.: I put a wooden table on the edge of the porch facing the trees and green of the backyard to make it easy to do shots with a pleasing natural background. I used a very shallow depth of field (F stop 1.4). I thought because it was outdoors, my exposure would have to be very fast, so I started at 400, but then saw how dark it was and dropped it to 125 (1/125th of a second). My kinds gave me this over ten years ago now; I'm pretty sure on a Father's Day, but it could have been my birthday. On Ty tag: You taught me how to throw a ball / And picked me up if I would fall / You made me feel so safe and sound / You're truly the best dad around / Pappa 2004 / Date of birth: June 19, 2003.
