Before and After

I've been busy. . . chasing my dog (who is Houdini reincarnated, the master of escape), cleaning my house (the bane of my existence to put it mildly), playing with Stella (the reason for my existence), and now relearning Photoshop and playing with the manual settings on my camera.

Here are some of PHOTOSHOP BEFORE AND AFTERS!









Skin color is off still. This is a hard one to balance she was wearing bright yellow that seemed to reflect on her face.
laying around with the eyes . . . went a little overboard, but it's the first time I did this and learned something new. 




Blogger is making this files so small. It's so sharp in the original!

Katie, 8 months already. Only 3 months apart! I think this school year will be a lot easier for us right? Everyone is always saying how are you going to do it. . . including my husband and I think the infant stage was like baby boot camp (a lot harder). I wonder how I did it before Stella. Having so much more fun now.

Thanks Nic. I am so excited to hear about your new job soon! Your kitchen is amazing.

Yes, I think this year should be easier. I just had to figure out how to change my work habits a lot since I used to spend tons of time working on stuff for school (including posting to Artsonia) at home. Now I am a lot better at making use of every spare minute at school so I have more baby time! I don't know that it's going to be that much easier to leave him Tuesday morning when I start back though! I'm just trying to be thankful for the time I had this summer.

She's perfect, with or without Photoshop!

BEAUTIFUL!!! I loved to see how you changed the images. I have just in the past 6 months gotten into photography...the learning curve (especially photoshop) is EXTREME!

You have an eye for this. Encore!! :)

P.S. I saw that you stopped by my blog. Thank you so much for becoming a follower!
