first attempts at photoshop

since I’m a newbie at photoshop, i followed tutorials that i found online to modify a few of my pictures.  here are the results of my efforts:

smiling couple >  BEFORE





smiling couple >  AFTER   the sun on their faces was a big problem…not sure if I was very successful at fixing that.  I faded the colors to give it a vintage, hand-tinted look.  Lastly, I cropped the photo to zoom in and center the couple.  

not too bad for a first try at photoshop!  more to come.

getting acquainted…

getting acquainted not with you, sorry – but with my new camera: my new Nikon D40, a perfectly lovely Christmas gift from my darling husband.  

And photoshop. Let’s not forget about photoshop, that beast.   I have yet to learn how to do it.

I have a lot of learning ahead of me….but also a lot of fun!!!  I hope you’ll join me.
