Tutorial Tuesday: Creating Matte Effect

I have loved this look ever since I started reading this blog... HERE

Shes really does a great job with this technique.

I also learned a new method from KARLI at THE BONNIE 5 

I have tried with trail and error to get this look and I think now with this tutorial I will master it.

Here is a before...

 And after...

I like the extra step of correcting the contrast.. it seems to boost the image.

I also found this cool video regarding this effect..

I love to capture these guys.

 Then this guy wanted to have some shoots of himself.
Hope your summer is serving you well.

Sneaking A Shot Among The Flowers

I went out to take some flower shots at a local park and a wedding was happening. So as the bride and groom were having their pictures taken I took a few shots myself. Trying to be oh so invisible.

Maybe someday soon I will be able to shoot my own wedding.

From A Hot Summers Day

Here in the midwest we have had record days of continual heat! Last week was in the high ninties with heat index of 100. That is hot!! Today I wanted to get out and take some shots only to want to go back inside with the A/C. Here are a few shots I took as I sweated for like a half an hour, I am a wimp when heat is concerned.

That grass hopper sure did not mind the heat.

Simple Things

My life has been filled with many learning experiences lately. I kind of am taking a break from blogging. Just have not had time or energy to do so. My photography has been slacking as well. But hopefully soon things will get better and I will feel more like blogging again.
