This is the nice apple tree in our backyard with the lovely plastic yellow swing that has been there since I was a little girl. My sister and I, along with our cousins, used to live on this swing. It was a big part of our childhood. Even now, we use it every now and then and our friends love it! Well, more like the inner child in every single one of us :) I used Photoshop to make the entire background black and white and enhanced the color of the tree, changing all kinds of levels and saturations and contrasts, etc. I think it really makes the green of the leaves and yellow of the swing stand out. I like the final product :)

So I have discovered that you can do much more on Picnik than just add words to a picture. There are some pretty cool features on it. And I'm sure these are all features that you can also do on Photoshop, but I am fairly new to the whole photo editing world (I typically just shoot and print 'em) and I am still learning how to use my editing software! This is a picture of me! :) It is actually one of my senior pictures (my friend and I took them together) and I really wanted a lot of dancing pictures and this was one that I really liked. Of course, like all good photographers, I felt the need to tweak it to make it extra special. So this is one picture that I did on Picnik rather than Photoshop. Actually that's a lie. First I edited it on Photoshop, and changed the colors and saturations and definition and highlights and all that. But then I uploaded it to Picnik and did that really sweet tunnel effect on it. I really like the way it turned out. Thank you to both!

I just really couldn't resist posting this one. This is a picture of my corsage and my date's boutonniere for Prom when I was a junior in high school. I went at it with Photoshop and just loved the way it turned out when I pulled all the color out of it except the red. It really pops :) We were entirely in black and white except for those flowers. It was quite lovely hehe :)

Last winter break, my family and I took a vacation to Disney World (I love Disney!!). On the way back we stopped at this beach that we used to stop at every time we went down to Florida, which was every summer. These are some of the pictures that I took and a few of them I edited to add some interest. The people you see are my mom, dad, and sister. Enjoy!

So here is my inaugural post on the photography "supplement" of my blog. Like I said on my other blog, this is like part 2 of "The Belgium Blogger". I have decided to include this since photography has so rapidly become a huge part of my life. Not only will I be posting pictures that I have previously shot, and reshot, and reshot again, and finally edited (hehe) but once I hit Europe those pictures will be all over this blog too! So check up here often!
