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: Christmas Offertory

I took this photo at church on the Sunday after Christmas during the offertory.  The light coming in the stained glass was magical and I couldn't resist.  But I snapped it off so quickly that I didn't get a chance to adjust my settings so it was way too dark.  I took it with my Rebel XT and I edited it in Paint Shop Pro 9.

After (edit):

Beautiful! It can be such a challenge to lighten photos sometimes. If only life provided perfect lighting opportunities! :)
