Before & After: Creating Storyboards...

April 07, 2010
One of my internet photog friends sent me three new pictures of her daughter, Keira, playing with their cat. She suggested that they might make a good storyboard, thus presenting me with the opportunity to share my steps. First off, there are a number of wonderful templates out there for creating storyboards. For example, CoffeeShop offers tutorials for creating simple and decorated storyboards. I chose to use another tutorial: Easy 3-panel storyboard. I suppose I could have recreated the steps, but why recreate when someone else has already done the work. Here are the before’s (I...

Meet Keira – like many of the babies I’ve been working with lately, she is a natural beauty – I can only hope that one day my children will be so beautiful. Here is the before: Seriously?!

Before & After…Indecisiveness

March 12, 2010
I’ve become indecisive when it comes to my editing style. This is pretty typical when I’m learning something new – I enjoy the process and then I reach a point where I just want someone to tell me which direction I should go. Perhaps I’m getting to the point where I’m nearly ready to chose a style. It almost feels like I’m back in college, choosing a major – the pressure! I may also be indecisive right now because a fellow blogger/photography board member shared her before & after for the photograph below and I was simply in awe. I know I...
