Carefully placing the cars. Essential. I love these shots. I used a 70's action on all the pictures to make the colors look old, yet vivid.
This shot of Oscar above was one where Tyler and Oscar were in the same race. Their cars are in the 5th and 6th row. Blue and green cars.

Wesley started soccer yesterday and instead of running home and running back we decided to play around the lake. The boys were kind enough to strike a couple of poses for me. YY is never very willing. I have to work pretty hard for his.
Oscar actually ended up with some pretty great pictures.
Ok I learned a new thing on my program last night. It is called
‘content aware scale.’ It can squish pictures so you still get the elements in the picture but eliminate the empty spaces. I was pretty blown away. Here is a before and after.
Really enjoying my new hobby. Need to learn more about the photography part.
I will get some soccer pictures soon. Tyler starts his practices soon.
I also will get some pictures of Emmett. He is sitting up now. Such a sweet baby. We love him lots. YY is still loving his little brother.
Well on I go with the day. I have a happy content feeling I think it has to do with the rain.

Tyler just loves his Emmett
Tanner, Monson, Ashlynn
Dallyn and Emmett. He is a great prop for pictures.
Peanuts on the floor.
Hunter just loves babies. Gentle soul. He will be a great missionary in Argentina.
Hunter, we wish you all the luck on your mission. We love you and are so excited that you have decided to serve.

I have been shooting in RAW too. So I have even more ways to manipulate. Cool. I opened these in RAW and did my crops and vignettes and minor adjustments. Then on to photoshop, used my selection tool and selected the kid/kid and me and then blacked out the background. On the one with just Mitt I didn’t black it all out. Then I made it black and white and then I used one of my cool actions called Super Happy Fun. Brought down the opacity and yay. I really like them.F/4.5 Shutter 1/8
