08/12/11 - Picture Day
Yesterday was school picture day for the kids. I tried to leave 5 minutes early for school so I'd have time to snap a few quick shots of my own. Joey was in a mood, but Madi and Johnny came through for me with those winning smiles I love. This shot is a few frames after, "Madi, give Johnny a tickle on his tummy." I tried to mess up this shot about every way that I could from the fence line above Madi's head being at the wrong height to not using the flash and getting some grain, but hopefully the clean-up work I did including using the Perfect Portrait 3 action (PSE7) from The Coffee Shop Blog helped. The framing is from OnOne's PhotoFrame. Besides border frames, there are a few layouts too.
Looking for inspiration for dinner tonight?
That's the start of chicken cacciatore substituting yellow squash for eggplant. I eventually added diced tomatoes, white wine, and some tricolor rotini. Yum!
Thanks for your enthusiastic comments on my barn shot yesterday. It felt good to take and process another barn shot. It had been too long. I really enjoy doing them. Where are more barns near me?!?
