Bridge Over Troubled Waters

Life is hard sometimes. People can be harsh. But the way you respond is what is important. It seems God is always putting a certain personality in my life to learn from . The last couple days that is exactly what happened. Oh I want to repond in truth and peace and love. Will I ever learn this lesson?

I went to one of my favorite parks and got some nice shots.

This one is SOOC I am happy this turned out this way.

Another Sooc

When I took this one I did not see the dragon fly till I edited it. Just used a perk up action.

Used my own made template and a vintage action.

Another SOOC below.

I think my photography is really getting better and better. So excited and so glad I finally know how to do actions you would not believe how thrilled I am!!!

The Color Purple And...

This is my all time favorite color,that and sage green.

A bulb flower pretty on it`s own.

Mystery man. This couple had the same idea as me to stop and smell the flowers. I just took a quick shot of him when he was not looking just to see how people captures would turn out.

I put a soft vintage effect to this.

This is the SOOC. Below.

 I think I am getting the hang of that effect I see so much. Though I would like to know why it is liked and used so much?

Shoot and Edit Wow

I was not sure what I was going to do with this then last night I was playing around with vintage effects. Here is what I came up with.


 Played around with layers of white.

Came out well I think.

Soft Vintage Effect

So Since I do not have actions yet. I have always wanted to know how to get that soft vintage look.

I created a way myself. Here is the before.

 And here is the after.

A slight change. I just duplicated photo layer. Put it to soft light. Made a new layer of white and reduced it to
30%. At normal.

Then this last one did the same steps but with the white layer set it to soft light at 70%

This last one is all steps from above and new layer at normal at 30%.

 Still learning edit techniques. Had fun and will try this effect on more up coming shots.

Shoot and Edit

I did not spend the day with my Dad. I had called him on Saturday and Sunday but he did not return my call. I think maybe they were out of town?! My step sister lives in Arizona and maybe she was effected with the wild fires. I have not heard anything. So I spent the day by myself.

I took this shot of some ducks I found this one is the only one that turned out. Sort of.

Flowers on Saturday

Another flower from the park.

I have a question, I have seen on a few photo blogs pictures with a side color frame. Some one told me the used an action to get that effect. But as you know i still can not do actions...( I literally need someone to walk me thru it visualy) So until that happens I am a no actions girl. Very sad about this!

Is there a way to do this your self in elements 9 with out an action???? Ther has to be. I tried with one shot but... any feed back is welcome.
