saturday morning photography

These four photographs, from the roll I took this morning, stood out at first pass. Olivia fits between the glass doors and the blinds. She could really scare the pants off someone if they didn’t know she was back there.  Should have taken the time to blur out our dirty window in the image below.

I’m about halfway through Scott Kelby’s “7-point System for Adobe Photoshop CS3.” Kelby’s method describes 7 main editing steps that are done in order. Not knowing what order to make edits in, or what tools are best for photography, has always frustrated me. This book remedies that uncertainty. He begins with RAW processing using ACR or LR (LR has ACR built in). The other 6 steps are done in PS CS3. This was all well and good until LR 2 was released in July. Why? Because LR 2 now has localized editing. In other words, you can make edits to parts of an image now rather than the whole image. This will significantly reduce the amount of time I’ll be spending in PS. Unfortunately, this breakthrough feature has essentially rendered Kelby’s book useless to me. Although the tools are similar, they work differently in LR. Kelby is now selling his “Lightroom 2 Book for Digital Photographers.” Guess its back to the book store. ; )
