I’ve been very busy editing hundreds of images from high school events including senior pictures, volleyball games, a powder puff game and homecoming.  Here is one of my favorite candid shots of my daughter on homecoming night and a photo of her pretty corsage.

I mentioned the other day that I was using a new post-processing program called Capture One Pro 9 and loving it. Since I mostly shoot nature photography, yesterday, I practiced taking some portraits of my lovely daughter, Caitlin. In this one she is backlit by the bright afternoon sun.

I complained about not having a reflector to chase the shadows away from her face. (Husband later went out and got me a 5-in-1 reflector kit. Love him; can’t wait to use it!) Yet, even without the reflector I was able to adjust for under-exposed Caitlin (AND the over-exposed sky) in Capture One.

What do you think?  So, I’m a little excited because I have never worked with a RAW converter before.  Thanks for bearing with me.  🙂

No Fair! Poor girl’s been in a knee brace and walking boot for almost 2 weeks now. Hopefully, only one more to go. Those darn growing pains!

Daisy is my first subject to shoot with my new “portrait” lens. She did a great job posing for me!

I have added a few pieces of artwork to my portfolio of works for sale including this recent drawing. To view more check out my art link here.
