Texas Bluebonnets

I don’t have as seamless a record of taking bluebonnet pictures as I do pumpkin patch pictures, but most years have been documented with a trip to a bluebonnet patch.  After all, it IS a Texas tradition.  I love looking back through the years and seeing how my girls have changed and grown.

Photography 101: Levels

I thought today I’d talk a little bit about editing.  For this tutorial, I was using Photoshop Elements 9, which retails for around $100.  (I think the current version is 11). It’s my opinion that it’s more important to work on getting it “right” in the camera than learning how to “fix” things in Photoshop. […]
