Mother’s Day 2010

For mother’s day, we went the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden.  The kids had a really good time.  I had fun editing the pictures too.  I really like the sepia look and the vintage look of old pictures.  Here are a few of my attempts to create those looks:

I had one picture that was terribly under exposed, but I was able to save it using Adobe Bridge by correcting the exposure and converting it to a BW picture.

I have found editing to be a very fun part of photography.  I switched to taking all of my pictures in RAW format in early March.  I was a little hesitant, so I started out taking them in RAW+JPEG.  That really eats up a lot of space.  I purchased a book by Scott Kelby titled “The Adobe Photoshop CS3 Book for digital Photographers”.  Since I’ve been reading and practicing what is in the book, I have become a lot more confident in editing pictures with Adobe.   It is a great book and I would highly recommend it.
