Fun with Photos (and a few extra kids and a bonus dog)
Since my first days as a blogger, photography has been one of my weak spots.
My husband used to refuse to hand me a camera. There are years of family photos that are missing his handsome face because no one wanted to wait the 30 minutes it took me to finally capture an acceptable shot.
One of the things I really wanted to work on this summer was photo editing. It turns out I need a little skill in this area for my Jamberry business, too.
I tried several of the free online offerings, and finally learned to use FotoFlexer with some degree of proficiency. At least now if the composition of my photography isn't top notch I can add a little touch of interest.
Which leads me to the photo above. Do you know how hard it is to get seven kids and two dogs to pose for even a millisecond? Impossible!
We "borrowed" our pastor's kids and dog for a night so that he and his lovely wife could escape for a birthday celebration. What a hoot!
Do you use a photo editing program that might help this novice graduate to the next level? Do share!
