Category Archives: Deep thoughts – Photography style
Spritually, Crew has taken us on a wonderful journey. Emotionally, he has made me really think about how essential these precious moments are with my young children. He is healing and doing well. He will be a healthy little boy. His smile and giggle brings a deeper joy than I could ever describe. The snuggles that my other kids give him melt my heart. Our family is whole, our blessings are deep and our faith is strong.
I had to make a choice. The one thing I could sacrifice is my blog. My time has been better spent with my children. But now, I have so much to share with you!! So many photo sessions un-blogged. 3 Weddings to be seen. Tutorials waiting on my hard drive. My re-acquaintance with the blogging world will be slow but I am excited for what is to come. Thank you for being so patient….
Here is a free download of this sign I made with baby Crew’s tiny toes. It is a 5×10 size but can be easily ordered as an 8×10 and cut to size. I think I will print it on styrene or foam board and place it on an easel.
It’s just a bonus that it happened to be my cute niece! Thanks for sharing the spotlight with me Sadie…..oh and Clint Eastwood!!
uh, does she look a little out of place to you:)
oh, and for those of you that were wondering? The bakery totally won for BEST BAKERY and BEST BREAD in the IE!! Thanks for all that voted for the bakery!! I will post more about that on my fam blog.
Now exposure…Getting decent exposure sooc has made a WORLD of difference in my editing process.
The album is just from target and holds up to 80 4×6 proofs. THe thank you cards with my sticker on it are also from Target.
Things have been heat’n up over here! I am going to start using this blog to preview pics for clients (I will definately still do tutorials too!!) It was time to class up my blog like a big girl! This is a FREE template!! It took just minutes to set it up and get it going (the link is at the very bottom, along with the template name)
Just when you are thinkin you are doin okay, it is definately time to shake it up and really improve. I am ready for just that. I will be doing a series of Photography tutorials!! I’m really doing them to help me see visually where I need to improve. I am about to go back and REALLY study White Balance, Metering, Aperture, Lighting set ups, backdrops, reflectors, macro….I am going to do some visual comparisons with my camera so we can see how these things can enhance our photography.
I have become pretty okay at photoshop. I know that if I totally screw up a photo, I have a pretty good chance of salvaging it. If I have a great photo, I can do a decent job of making it better. But now, I am going to let go of my CRUTCH and try to get GREAT SOOC shots every time (well almost every time:/).
disclaimer…..(Okay, I can’t let go of Photoshop all together….I love it:) I’m sure I’ll throw some Photoshop tutorials into the mix!!
