It’s been a while since I have updated this, so here are a few from Easter as well as some other random shots. I also got a 50mm lens today, during a craigslist sale! So excited!!

OK anyway onto the pictures. Some of my SOOC’s aren’t going to have settings because I had to delete some files to make some room on my SD card, also some do not even have SOOC shots.

SOOC- Lost settings, 3-18-10

Finding Locations… March 16, 2010

I took my daughter Paige out today to find some locations to shoot. We had a blast, but unfortunately I am not happy with most of the pictures I was able to get. Most of the pictures are blown out by the sunlight. I notice one is under exposed and the other over exposed. All in all it was fun and good practice for me.

SOOC: F/1.8, SS 1/640, ISO: Unknown

Edit: Using PS, Level adjustment, Curves, Eye pop action, sharpen and resize. Should have cloned a few things out also.

I am so happy to look outside my house and see grass! Spring is on it’s way and I can’t wait to get outside and take some pictures! In the meantime…

Took some pictures of my daughter today. She was drinking hot chocolate, so don’t mind the dirty face.

Being that we had a snow day today, I figured I would bother the kids with pictures. Enjoy.

I took some pictures of the kids (that you have already seen) and my friend Donna did the edits. I really like the way they turned out and I really want that Honey action for photoshop!

Anyway here are the edits:

 

Morning Pictures… February 24, 2010

Took some pictures of the kids this morning and I can see a ton of things wrong with them, but hey I just woke up and my lighting in the house sucks. I need a flash and that’s that!

In this one I had my AP to small, which actually happened with all of them, so it’s a little out of focus and blurry because of the slow SS speed. Also the exposure looks a bit off to me.

F/1.8, 1/8 sec, ISO:320

Edit done using Photoshop Elements

Again the low AP and slow SS messed up this picture.

f/1.8, 1/8 sec, ISO 320

Edit using Photoshop Elements

The exposure in this one looks off, to dark I think

f/2.2, 1/40 sec, ISO:400

Edit using photoshop elements

The exposure in this one is off and no catch lights

f/2.2, 1/50 sec, ISO 400

Edit in Photoshop Elements

No focus!
