These guys were GREAT sports!

I left feeling like I didn't get anything good, but came home and was quite pleased with a few shots.

I've said it before and I'll say it again...it is becoming clear to me that I need to learn photoshop. I see potential in my photos, but can't make them look exactly how I want.

At any rate...here are some from today. And although not all the kids were looking perfect at once for the family shots, I think it's fun to see them in their true colors! After all, they are kids, right?

You did a great job! I just took a PS course and really learned a lot... If you want, I can mail you my notes/assignments. I think your photos are gorgeous though - and have way more than just potential! Well, email me should you want the notes :)

I love your photos! Are you shooting in RAW? If so, when you drag the files to Photoshop, it should automatically open up the CameraRAW program and it makes editing a BREEZE! You can do such amazing things with it! :) Vignettes, higher contrasts, oh my the list goes on!

The only thing that makes me think you might be using it are the shadows on the faces that can be easily fixed with the fill light option. Other than that -- your photos seriously are beautiful and I don't know that you NEED much improvement! :D (Oh my - I sound like I'm some uppity professional. I'm NOT. I'm just a Photoshop nerd!!)

You are super talented!
