Welcome to my little ol' blog. I'll be upfront about it: I don't blog very often any more. If you found your way here because you read my book "Trailer Life," have a gander! But it's easier to keep up with me on Instagram or on my Facebook page. I have this long, drawn out theory on why I'm a terrible blogger, but that is a story for another day. Enjoy the ramblings of my life from the last 8 years or so.

Post Processing with Free Action in PSE 7

For whatever reason, I decided to fiddle with post processing some pictures. That, and I put up a makeshift background (weed blocker hung from my clothesline) while the sun was starting to go down. I used Jessie, as she likes to model. I don't know what it is about school age kids- they get all wacky with their "smiles" and "poses." I took a few shots of Kacy, but they looked very forced. Will, too. Ed would have been a good choice because he is so photogenic, but he was inside watching Phineas and Ferb, and when he did come out, he had a really messy face and his hair was all wonky. Jessie was my option, and I'm so happy with these two poses! I'm going to have to make some high-res copies and get them printed out. AND I'll have to try and get the other three done so I have a complete set. (Warning! Type-A in me. Sorry.)

Memories of Sunshine

Warm Autumn Sky- This one is my favorite! I think.I'm usually not a big fan of post processing, being married to a purist and all. But I do like the way some of these look, and would love to have one for a wall photo. Most of my blog pictures are very lightly edited; cropping and resizing, and "levels" corrections to compensate for my exposure issues, if needed. But these? I like these. All actions are from Coffeshop. They are all free. They run with both Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. They are easy to install. Thanks to Kiahna for the heads up about the site. (Check out Kiahna's site for some scrapbooking inspiration. She's good.)
