#10 Kiran

Today was a warmish day, but the snow was falling quietly.  Our son was heading out for a really Big Gig (of his band Fresh Cut Collective in Milwaukee).  I asked him to step out and pose for me for a couple of minutes.  I liked this image which I processed in a couple of different ways.

Which do you like?  Any other comments?

Thank you for visiting.

#9: Caramel Apple Anyone?

I loved shooting these kids.  They are so full of fun, ice cream and excitement.  I could have spent hours on them….but just spent 5 minutes.  Aaaah.

#8: Pooch on X-mas eve!

Still trying the Snap Art 2 effect on images. I went slightly bolder on this image.  I like it better on this image, but will try a couple more soon.

I guess I am still a bit of a traditionalist…liking the non-filtered looks.

Comments and suggestion are most welcome.

#7: India – That’s her name!!

indiapostfinalThis is my very first attempt at using Alien Skin’s Snap Art 2.  I downloaded a trial version today and have 30 days to try it and decide if I like this program and this effect.  So, I will try and use this diligently for a few days and see how I feel.

In the mean time, PLEASE let me know if you have any comments, suggestions, and ideas of how else to practice using this program  It will help me work out things and see if I like it.

Thanks for your comments in advance.

This image is of a very sweet person I met in Savannah, GA.  Her name is India.

#6: I Love Street Photography


The reason I love street photography so much is that when I am walking around with a camera in hand, so many photographic opportunities seem to jump out at me.  I love seeing a family passing by, stop and chat with them,  and ask to take their picture. Then when I show an image or two on my LCD, they just glow and pose some more with enthusiasm.  I love this whole process and walk away with such a warm feeling….I smile for a long time after that is over.

I love the colors in this image. Grabbed me right away.
