I did it all by myself

When David Morlock came to our house to do pictures a couple of weeks ago, Dave helped me set up a shot of my kids that I had initially seen on Pinterest (Simple Portrait Setup), but couldn’t duplicate on my own. He set the kids up in the perfect light, gave them something white to put in their laps to bounce the light back up onto their faces, and set my camera just right so that I could capture the look I was going for. Voila, it worked!

After I captured some shots on my own, he gave me a quick & easy Adobe Lightroom tutorial to show me how to edit my pictures a bit. I played around with a couple of the pictures today. What do you think?

I’ll keep playing with it. I have lots to learn, but I’m on my way!


About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter
