About Me

My photo
I love Jesus. I love my family. I love photography. I love books. I love thinking. Probably in that order. I have a wonderful husband, five beautiful daughters, a house, and a camera. I enjoy spending time talking to my husband, playing with my girls, redecorating my house and shooting things with my camera. In my spare time, I sleep.

Before & After: Jasmine J.



 Yesterday I took a few photos of Jasmine in our yard with an old suitcase and my teddy bear as props.  She didn't mind because she knows that mommy usually is good for a piece of candy if she'll model for me!  We didn't take too many since the lawn was wet and she refused to sit on the ground.  Plus the lighting was really bad with too many shadows & stray light.  For this particular photo I cropped it, blurred the background, adjusted the curve, upped brightness & contrast, then converted to black & white & added my personal vignette.  (I edit using Paint Shop Pro.)
