Edit


I'm getting a bit addicted to this knit headband. It's perfect because I can wear my hair in ponytail so it's even lower maintenance than throwing on a hat and worrying about what my head looks like once the hat is removed indoors. Also new-to-me is a photo editing program: Lightroom. I've worked with the free iPhoto program that comes with Macs since my first Apple product many moons ago, but I finally decided to invest in a program and play around with editing more. So far I've only been messing around with colors, so if my pictures look like negatives that were soaked in a lake before being developed, you know why. Despite photographing myself for the blog on a regular basis I'm really untrained in this area; learning to take pictures through trial and error while slowly working with better and less basic cameras, and now editing my photographs will be the same hit-and-miss process. Every time I think I take a decent photograph I see the work of some fifteen year old on the other side of the country and cringe at my own shots a little. Perhaps 2014 will also be the year I find more willing subjects to practice on!

Absolutely adorable. I think this editing style works great for the setting and outfit, too.

I'm still editing photos using Microsoft Office Picture Manager because I'm too lazy to use Photoshop and I get 80% of the utility from the simpler program, haha >.<

oh, you're gonna LOVE lightroom. it's so much more efficient than anything else out there, and does really well at 'saving' photos that might not have been exposed right. have fun!

The saddle shoes! (!!!) Also, I'm the same way with photos, and I think it's the best way to really understand the photo editing process to just to it by trial and error. For economy and time restraint reasons, I've been relying strictly on my iPhone lately, though, so perhaps not one to talk! Haha! Looking good! :D

Cheers,
Kate

I think you take wonderful photos. They're real and always full of color. Nothing more than that is needed!

Sincerely,
Joanna

Love this - I still use the free software on my Mac and Photoshop Elements and only just converted to using RAW so I'm still getting there! Have a very happy christmas Rebecca!
