Reflection

I Heart Faces

This week’s contest at i♥faces is reflection.  This isn’t a tradition reflection, but it is one.  I took this picture just this weekend.  The mom-to-be was relaxing on her bed when I realized I could capture her in the mirror.  If look closely at the bottom of the picture, you can see the frame of the mirror.  It was an amazing moment!

Fix It

I Heart Faces

I’m starting to love Fix It Fridays at i♥faces!  I love experimenting with photoshop and learning new tricks and action recipes.  For this week’s picture, here is the original:

melindafixit31In photoshop, I started by adjusting the levels and doing just a small cropping.  I really like the rock around this little boy and didn’t want to lose that.  Then, using TRA I used Derelicte and Oh Snap! to give you my finished product.  Here you go:

Pet Photo-Fenway

I Heart Faces

This weeks contest at i heart faces is pouting for kids and pet photos.  Unfortunately I don’t have a kid pouting picture, but I do have a dog who is very photogenic. So for this week contest, this is my pet photo:

Have a great Monday!

Fix It Friday

Its that time again, Friday, the best day of the week and time for another Fix It Friday at i heart faces.

Here is the original:fixit8_thumb

For my version, I used Photoshop and started by adjusting the levels and then used Totally Rad Actions to create my look.  I actually used a recipe that they recommended which is Yin/Yang, then Big Blue, and finally Boring B&W at 50% opacity.

New Lens

This week I bought a new lens for my camera. I have been thinking about it and talking about it for a few months, so I finally just made the decision to get it. I can say that I’m definitely glad that I made the purchase. I love the lens and the pictures that it takes. I have been playing around taking some pictures and testing different elements out. Here are just a couple of shots I’ve taken. Of course they involve my favorite subject!
