Playing with Photoshop

A big part of learning photography has also been learning Photoshop. When I work on my pictures I have mostly stuck with the basic color brightening tools and every now and then I get brave and try a b&w or sepia tint. This weekend I took Haylie out for our first official photo shoot "on location" and got several cute pictures. So I decided to get a little adventurous in Photoshop and try some different looks. They don't work for every photo but I kinda like them!

This is an Antique Tone.

I added texture on this one - that's the first time I've done that - it looks neat :)

This is a little color variation on the b&w, plus some softening.

This is straight b&w.

This is straight color - pretty hard to beat! She came up with this pose all on her own! Too cute!

Anyone totally bored hearing about photography?? Sorry - I am just having so much fun with my new hobby; I love to talk / blog about it! :)

I'm not bored at all! It's fun to have someone learn right along with me (or actually ahead of me, so you can give me some tips:)

Keep the pictures coming!

Love the photos but did you double check that there weren't any trains coming?

One Mommy's view point said...

I'm not complaining! I really can't since I've benefitted from your photography skills so much already! :) Keep it up, I see a side profession in your future!
