{ Photoshop Rocks }

I took this ''in car'' picture a couple days ago while running errands with the fam. While I loved this shot of Addison because I think the lighting was just plain cool I did not however love the messy little face she was sporting
(ya gotta love snacks in the car)
So I whipped out my CS3 and in about 5 minutes time came up with the following

I am so in love with the shadows and the play of light in this photo. But I have to confess that I still have no idea what I'm doing (well not totally) but it sure is fun playing right? :) I know there is someone out there that can make this photo really scream but for now, my sad little attempt will have to do.

Canon EOS 50D
Shutter Speed 1/125
F stop: f/5.6
ISO 640

Do these terms mean anything to me?

Sigh.... I have so much more to learn.....

PS. Date night with Jentry was so much fun & Harry Potter 6 was pretty darn good, I can't wait for the next 2 movies to come out. Yes #7 is being split into 2 movies. The first half being released in November of 2010 & the second half released in July of 2011.

  1. cute! Thanks for the idea of going to HP. . . I had originally wanted to have a just me & Spencer trip. . .but how can I leave the other 2 out? Oh, & while we were at it. . .we invited Dad! So we plan to go tomorrow afternoon. . .all 5 of us!

  2. I love it. That's so neat. I have photoshop but don't know what to do with it. I need time to just play around with it.

  3. i have a 50d too and love it...started using aperture and wish i understood it's full potential, although, i am seeing some amazing things! are you good with dodge and burn??? i could use a little help still there.

  4. Adorable picture! Gotta love modern technology.

    Brit said the movie was way cool and worth staying up to watch at midnight.

  5. Photoshop can do that? Amazing!
    although I do like the messy face too! :)


  7. Wow, what a difference!! Think I can photoshop off about 80 pounds?? Hahaha!!

  8. Wow, Photoshop to the rescue. That is amazing, as is the precious moment you captured. : )

  9. Wow! Nice Cute picture of her and nice photoshoping ! I really need to get a program like that, oh...and figure out how to use it!I would end up experimenting too , probably forever if I don't buy a book :)

  10. Yes!! I agree. I just got photoshop elements, and I LOVE it!!! Great job with the pic. Although, you gotta love the "messy face" pictures too :)

  11. Cute pic.It's amazing what technology can do!

  12. Way way way beyond anything I could do. But it sure works great. Do you think you could erase 30 lbs off me? Mimi

  13. I saw HP opening day and have to say it was fantastic! I'm super excited to see the last two movies!

  14. Photoshop is so much fun!

    I think it's great that you had a date night with Jentry! Such a sweet thing and will be good memories for him.

    We received the headband in the mail and my Sweet Girl LOVES it! She has worn it EVERY DAY! :)


  15. I have an AMAZING digital amazing that I don't know much about it except to make some videos and some pics..I really should read the manual..daaa..

    My girlfriend Reflections of Me (Aimee) KNOWS all about fixing this type..she does it all the time and shares the pics..will try to send her here to check out your blog and maybe give you some pointers...

  16. All pictures look so much better without flash!

  17. LOVE it! Did you just use the healing tool? And did you do something to her eyes? It looks like you might have done something subtle to them...I use photoshop but I can barely find my way around and can just do the basics! I took some naked baby butt pics of my son when he was 2 weeks old and used photoshop to get rid of diaper marks on his skin. LOVE IT!
