I am about 70% sure that I did not take the pictures in this post; Brandon did. However I have taken the liberty to play around with them on picnik (don’t worry; I saved the originals!) Back in September and shortly after Adeline was born, we went for a walk in a city park about 20 minutes from our house. I think this was one of the first days we had our new camera and we spent plenty of timing playing around with it at the park.
I like the pumpkins in this picture (it is Fall, after all), and I think they are a timeless subject. I used a “vintage” style to edit this photo and added some texture to add to the older feel of the photo. Of course the rounded edges top it all off. I think the rounded edges are currently my favorite way to edit my photos.
The picture of the outhouse is begging to not be so centered, but even with cropping this was the best I could do. I still think it’s an interesting subject for editing, especially with the opposing colors of red and green being so prominent. I just wish I could see off the the left of the photo a little further! Oh well. We learn as we go. Now we’ll just have to go back to the park and get another shot. I warmed up the tones a bit in this one then used the “cross processing” edit. I am not really sure what that means, but I like the way it looks. It definitely amplifies the rustic quality of the outhouse–which I happen to think was painted within the last few years but made to look like it hadn’t been painted in 20!
