Yesterday I spotted two cool pictures.
One of Jessica Alba and one of Julianne Hough.
How about this coat!?!? It's my favorite coat I have seen in a long time.
I was inspired by their coolness... so when we got home from school yesterday I told Katie I had an idea.
I made her put on my sunglasses, handed her a shirt to change in to and said she could put on some colorful lipstick.
The light was not perfect BUT it was sunny and that made me SO happy.
Here are the before/afters
When you shoot into the sun you get a haze. I needed to get the haze out so I added black by way of contrasting and levels in photoshop.
Then I played around with many different actions to find one I loved for these pictures.
I settled on one called Toy Camera by Eye Candy Actions.
straight out of camera....haze.
levels and contrast
a tighter crop
I like my blurry pictures.
levels and saturation
Remember when I did my talkie blogs with glasses on?
Just so you know...the new haircut has not been all butterflies and unicorns....
The other morning...after the first shower with the new pixie....
Katie's hair looked like this...
And she had a melt down.
Until I helped her fix it.
This morning was another shower.
We used gel this time.
It worked great!
Zip. Zip. Zip.
This is a logo from Wichita State University. They are the Shockers. Yes. For shocking wheat.
Janet's niece plays volleyball for this college... and another fun fact, the Shockers just had an undefeated boy's basketball season. They are all the talk this year. You will hear about them come March Madness. And hopefully you will think of Katie. Not.
