Have Fun With a Little Photo Editing.

Music for the soul

Computers, editing software, filters, and programs make it so easy and fun to alter photographs that you take. The other evening, all of a sudden I announced to the kiddos that the sun was fantastic so we were going to grab the guitar and head to the coulees. Well, they knew that I never leave home without my camera. The sun setting over the golden grasses gave me the perfect backdrop to take some pictures of my kiddos. When we got home I was thrilled by the photographs that I had captured and so with a select few pictures uploaded, I started to edit them.

I first use Adobe Photoshop CS5 to enhance the clarity and sharpness of my photo. Corel is a good program to use too. I like to shoot on an angle looking up so that the background behind my subject is often as neutral as possible. I can play with that blank space behind the subject. I love using my Bamboo drawing pad from Wacom to doodle on my photos.   image
