Selfie Saturday…CLONED!

March 12, 2011
I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again…is it just me or are you learning so much from Elena’s Selfie Saturday tutorials? I’ve actually been excited to attempt “cloning,” since Chelsey (The Paper Mama) shared a tutorial on Paper Heart Camera in November…and then with her Christmas card (talk about creative!).  An as anxious as I was to give this whole cloning thing a try, I had one teeny tiny problem…LIGHT. I work full time, so most times, I can only do my “photography assignments” in the evening or on the weekends....
Scavenger Hunt Sunday

March 06, 2011
It’s been a good week. Sure I got sick on Monday, but overall…the weather seems to be warming up and I can feel the creativity juices itching to get out (or maybe that’s just my allergies…ha ha).

They set up the tripod and start taking pictures!I brought my tripod and remote trigger just in case we decided we wanted a picture together.

I mentioned that this week’s Selfie Saturday theme was “idea,” and that we were supposed to execute a creative idea. After getting our typical smiley...
Selfie Saturday: Arm’s Length

February 26, 2011
Is it just me or are you learning so much from Elena’s Selfie Saturday tutorials?  Considering that this week’s Shoot and Edit Photo Challenge theme is Couples or Self-Portraits, I’ve been spending a lot of time lately thinking about how to better set up my shots. I’m sure that Jill will have even more tips for us on Monday – although I’m not  looking forward to sharing a SOOC shot.Last week’s lesson was all about arm’s length self-portraits or as someone so eloquently called them, the “MySpace” photo. My sister is the master of...
