Here are the 3 photos I added to my photobook.

Chubba;3/3/11, 3:57 p.m. Rexburg, Idaho; f/5.6; 1/125 sec.; Nikon D3000

I love this picture of Graham, my nephew. So natural and not posed. The colors are awesome. The only edits I did were boost the colors, hide a little scratch on his nose with the content aware tool, and lightened the eyes with the dodge tool.


Perfect Frame; 3/3/11, 4:22 p.m.; Rexburg, Idaho, f/4.5; 1/250 sec.; Nikon D3000

My sister is a model haha. The only thing I did to this picture was a boost in the colors. I love the way I had her posed and the way the door framed her.

70’s Angalee; 3/3/11, 4:20 p.m. ; Rexburg, Idaho; f/5.3; 1/160 sec.; Nikon D3000

I love this picture. I think my sister looks so pretty and the natural smile is awesome. The only edits I did were a 70’s action, and then she had a few hairs blowing across her face so I used the brush tool to take the hairs away. I turned down the opacity to 30 and the flow to 20 then eye dropped the color of her skin when using the brush.


I had to add these two. I love how they show Graham’s personality.

Nikon D3000, f/4.5,1/30 sec

Edits: saturation, contrast, levels, boost action from PW, added 2 texture shots, vignette, and crop

My kitchen is red and I wanted a new picture for it. I took the picture in Bannack and then added 2 texture shots using the overlay blending mode. I upped the contrast, levels, saturation, and gave it a boost so all the colors would stand out. I then added a vignette to draw the attention into the spices. I then cropped.

Nikon D3000, Shutter priority, f/11, 1/160 sec

Edits: saturation, contrast, boost action from Pioneer Woman, 70’s action from PW, smoothed skin, fixed color on fingers and ear, darkened Tanner’s eyebrows, lightened eyes, vignette, crop, added text

I wanted an updated picture of my husband and I so we decided to go brace the cold and take a new one. I put my camera on a tripod and used the self-timer. In Photoshop I added a boost and 70’s action from PW. I then adjusted the saturation, contrast, and added a vignette. I used the brush tool at a low oppactiy and flow to smooth the skin in a few areas, darken the eyebrows, and lighten my fingers, and Tanner’s ears. I used the dodge tool to lighten the eyes. I then added text in the corner. Finished it off with a crop.

Bannack HDR

Simple Kitchen; 2/22/11; Bannack; f/3.5; 1/30 sec; Nikon D3000

I just took the one picture and put it through Dynamic Photo. Changed a few things with the color.




HDR 3 photo; 2/22/11; Bannack; f/5.6; 1/125 sec.; Nikon D3000

I used a tripod and took 3 photos. Each time I changed the exposure -2,-,+2. I then took all 3 photos into dynamic photo. It “meshed” them all together. I then just changed a few things with lighting and contrast.

same texture as above

I changed the contrast and saturation on this picture. I applied the boost action from Pioneer woman. I then put the texture picture on this picture and used the overlay blending mode. I copied this texture layer so it is on there twice.

ghost shot (action blur); 2/22/11; Bannack; f/8; 5″; Nikon D3000

The way I was able to make the 2nd picture look ghostly. I put my camera on a tripod. I then set my shutter speed to a long time. I had my subject sit there for around 2.5 seconds then he booked it out of the picture.
