i♥faces - Amateur

Photobucket


This is my entry for Week 14 - Amateurs at ifaces. The theme is Easter, and while the family was all in one place to celebrate the holiday we decided it was time to update the family picture. Our oldest son and his wife were soon to be moving across the country. Were not a very serious bunch . . . and not an Easter egg in sight in this photo. I enjoy playing around with different photoshop actions from time to time and this photo has been retouched with Define & Sharpen, from PW.

I am definitly an amateur when it comes to photography. It is a great love of mine, but most of my good stuff has been by accident, and I'm just now trying how to figure out to accomplish the same look ON PURPOSE! I take photos of everything, my neighbors families, kids and pets, but have yet to charge for any of my work. But I may have to think about it soon since I spend hours and hours doing post processing.

  13. I absolutely love it. Every person in the shot has a great expression. Usually, in a group there's at least that one person with the "duh" look on their face. I hope it makes it into the top 10 at least!

  15. What a cute picture! Those are the ones that are so fun to have and remember.

    You know, there's probably a great market in graduation pictures. They charge a ridiculous amount of money to have it professionally done!

    I'm so glad you stopped by!
