FIX-IT FRIDAY

January 22, 2010
To go along with the  “We Are Family” theme, i ♥ faces wanted to highlight a family whose dad has been struggling with cancer for years. They recently found out the devastating news in December that his cancer is now terminal, and are now doing everything they can to enjoy the rest of the time they have together on this earth. Since I just found a ton of free Photoshop Elements compatible actions last night on Coffeeshop Photography, I thought what better way to test drive my new actions! Here is the original photo:  Aren’t they a great family? I love this shot, but I...

CASE OF THE “WANTS!”

January 20, 2010
I guess I knew when I bought my (first) DSLR, that it’d quickly become an expensive hobby, but I am trying to pace myself.

Besides, I haven’t added anything in a while, so why not! This is one of my favorite wedding “family” photos taken by Lynette Mittendorf. Jeremy and I are taking our first dance. As you see, my parents, sister, our niece and nephew (among others) are standing in...

I ♥ FACES – “BEST FACE PHOTO”

January 11, 2010
I’ve recently decided to follow i ♥ faces as a chance to improve my photography through weekly photo challenges. This week’s challenge is “best face photo” taken between December 2009 and January 2010, and since I just got my Canon Rebel XSi before Thanksgiving,  I had a ton of great faces taken over the holidays. For my first post, I thought about posting picture of my mom puckering up for a kiss with my Uncle’s dog, but I thought she might kill me. Instead, I’ve decided on a picture of our niece. She got this new toy that has a dome cover. While she...
