The Kite Festival

Yesterday we went to the Zilker Kite Festival.

I love to see all of the people that enjoy flying a kite. There were lots of different kites in all different shapes adn sizes but we found that a good old fashioned cheap plastic kite works the best.

Then we spent some time at the park playscape.

Sydney's baptism

Sydney was thrilled to be eight and be able to be baptized on January 31st.

Unfortunately I don't have a picture with a full length shot of her dress but here is a picture with some friends that attended her baptism.

It was a wonderful day! We really enjoyed having family here.

Inspiration Assignment

I have been learning that the thing that most attracts me to photos of people is the color in the pictures.

I also love pictures that focus on the face and have a very shallow depth of field. The pictures I've taken focus on these to elements.

Make a picture better

This weekend we went to a celebration of Texas and specifically Dripping Springs History. There were a lot of fun activities for our kids to do. They had a great time.

The picture I chose to work on in photoshop was this shot of Sydney grinding corn into cornmeal.

I cropped the picture and adjusted the light levels slightly. Then I straightened the horizon of the picture. I then attempted to sharpen Syd's face while leaving the motion blurred. Then I finished the picture off by cleaning up the stain on the front of Syd's shirt.

Negative space

I've also really been debating on how to set up my negative space picture. Today I finally had a few minutes to play. I'm not sure that the picture is a great representation of negative space but I did have fun with what a came up with.
