Happy New Year

What a year it has been. For me it went by to fast. I am looking forward to 2012 and pray that I will use this next year wisely. Allowing God to lead me in whatever He chooses.

I wish everyone a happy and safe New year full of the Lords promises for your life to be enjoyed.

This new year I want to really go futher in my photography. I am excited for this next chapter in my life.

Be A Blessing This New Year.

Print Size

So it has been a year for my photography. I think I have really grown and learned and improved on this great adventure.

Now I am getting serious and to the point where I feel my shots can be good enough for print.

The only thing like so many things I have been slow to learn is how exactly to do this to have the right pixels and size and resolution .

I have watched so many youtube videos on this but still am a bit confused. My understanding is with the raw size , which in my case is usually wideth 5184 and height 3456. Which for blog purpose I change and resize to 900 by 600. Resolution at 240 but change to 72.

Now with an unsized image on youtube many say to uncheck sample size and change that to at leaste 300 and then recheck it and put your dementions in example 8 by 10 and then select bicubic smoother for enlargements and then press ok.

Is this how you those who have this as a profession and have to make prints or is there a better way? I have prints done at Target,( I know but is the only place close and she said you need the resolution at leaste 1000?

Please come tell me what you do. There are some shots I have taken worthy of framing and if I am going to have any clients I want to do it right for the future.

Thanks. Resizing would be done from photoshop elements 9. Maybe someone could make a tutorial on this???

and here is one shot I thought of framing.

Soft and Dainty

Bought some daisies I have been having fun with. Here is another couple of shots.

So I have macro tubes and filters but I really want just a good macro lens. I am thinking of getting this one
Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro Lens,
or this one non EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens for Canon SLR Cameras
The first is in my price range right now. But the second one would be the better choice I think. We will see.
and then, she {snapped}Live and Love...Out Loud

Enjoy the day.

Church tonight was just what I needed. I have been going thru sort of a struggle and with this holiday coming it has been very hard. But God is good He is able to do more then I will ever expect in the situation I am facing. With that I am so thankful.

The message was titled How Do We Get This Love Thing Right?

Some questions hard ones at that are asked of all of us as we choose this thing called LOVE.

* Am I sincere? Love must be sincere. Romans 12-9

*Am I discerning? Hate what is evil, cling to what is good. Romans 12-9b

*Do I display tender affection? Be devoted to one another in love Romans12-10

*Do I honor others? Honor one another above yourselves Romans 12-11

*Am I patient? Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans12-12

*Am I generous?
Share with the Lords people who are in need. Romans12-13a

*Am I hospitable? Love strangers show others kindness. Romans 12-13b

*Do I bless those who oppose me? Bless those who persecute you, bless and do not curse. Romans 12-14

*Am I sypathetic? Rejoice with those who rejoice, mourn with those who mourn Romans12-15

*Am I living in harmony with others? Live in harmony with one another Romans 12-16a

* Do I demonstrate humility? Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not think you are superior. Romans 12-16b.

We are all the same and have the same Lord to answer to. The same cross where we all have been forgiven.

If you have people in your life who do not know the love of Jesus, please do not wait to tell them!! He is the most important gift you will ever give to them. 

Scripture and a Snapshot

Today here will be in the fourties. LOVE it. Work is slowing down for a bit which I am glad. I also think I just made my own action. Now I just need to learn how to share it. And am learning all about resolution when getting a shot ready to be printed for framing. Have not printed any of my work yet but this will be soon changing and becoming a regular thing.
Way behind on my christmas shopping, for some reason I am just stumped on what to do or get for those in my life. I use to be all about presents but the real reason for this time is JESUS. Not gifts we give. Relationships are whats important to me this year.

Well I pray you all are having a peacefilled time in preparation for Our Saviors birth.

Blessings to you.

Tis The Season

So As many may know I have been very busy. But time will come when I am not so and I can not wait. I have not had any real time to just have fun taking pictures. Tomorrow is my first real day off in like 8 days. Tonite I cleaned my house and got errands done so I can just hang out tomorrow without anything really begging for my attention.

I did this shot kind of fast because I did not have all of the props I needed like lights. For bkoeh back ground. I have seen this type of shot done and wanted to try it out. Can you beleive my Target well there are actually like four I can go to in a five mile radious , are out of little lights? I may hit the others tomorrow or try a differebt store. I actually want to get to Michales craft store and get some fake snow and glitter to make homemade snow globes.

anyway... here is my first attempt

Like I said I want to add the famous bokeh lights in the back ground.  But this turned out nice anyway.

Sweet Shot Day

In The Frame

I have seen this done many times and wanted to give it a try.



Since I have been sooooo busy I am falling behind in my posting, commenting .

Hopefully soon there will be more time for me to be able to  get out and take some new shots and get back to normal.

Here is just a simple little vase I found.

I saw this new challange and thought I would join in. Called I`m Thinking..

I am thinking that I really think this turned out neat.

(ok so not the best first start to this but it was a try.)

Happy Thursday
Go see what some others have been thinking.
