On the Road Again

So here is another picture from our beach trip.  I was going for a vintage look again with this picture.  It looks ok…… I really like how the Capri Sun box looks in this image.  We really had the truck jam pack.


Vintage Summber Beach Fun

I haven’t posted any pictures from our beach trip and its long over due.  So my goal is to post one every day over the next few days.  I read a tutorial on Love that Shot(http://lovethatshot.com/) on the summer vintage look so I thought I’d try it on the first beach photo that I will post….Here goes:

Vintage Flea Market Finds

My Dear Hubby went to the flea market one morning and found this great vintage video camera for me.  I was sooo surprised and sooo happy.  He got it for only 5 bucks.  Its a Sankyo Super CM 600.  Looks like this model was made around  1969-70.  It came with the original case, guarantee papers, and an instruction manual.  It has tape in it.  Maybe one day I’ll learn how to use it, but for now, I’m just happy to have it in my collection…which is not much of one, but its a start.



Wait for Me!!!!

Today’s picture is of Sydney running to me in the backyard.  I was going to water my “garden” and she was running to catch up with me.  I love the vintage look and haven’t used it in a while so I thought I’d use it with this photo.  The picture is not as sharp as I would like it because my shutter speed was too slow and she was running, but I love this picture because I love to see her run.  She has this funny little bounce to her run.  I also love how the vintage conversion turned out.  This picture looks like it’s from the 1930’s.

Looking Through the Window

I’ve been playing with my new lens and playing with some photoshop actions from CoffeShop and MCP Actions and here are the results:

This first picture is SOOC (straight out of the camera)

This was a black and white conversion using MCP actions.

This is my favorite of the three.  In this picture I added lens flare in Photoshop, converted the image to black and white and added tinting from Soulful BW Tints.  I used memories tint.

One thing I have noticed that I need to correct.  When I post my pictures here they seem stretched and narrowed. Not sure if it is something that I am doing when I adjust the size for the web or what, but I need to work on it.

Until next time…

Our Beach Trip

Our family took a trip to the beach a couple of weeks ago, and I should be ashamed of myself because I haven’t processes all of the pictures.  I’ve been shooting in RAW a few months now and I haven’t gotten the workflow thing together.

I really like sepia tone photo and the vintage look so I always try to find pictures that will look good with those tones. Here are a few pics that I’ve processed so far.

More pics to come after whenever I take time to process them.
