School pictures...

I hate to sound so negative, but I detest school pictures. You pay so much money for less than mediochre pictures. They send the kids to recess and then take their pictures...I have received our fair share of horrid pictures, so I stopped buying them. I just do them up that day, (so their yearbook looks okay) and I take a picture of them myself and photoshop it. I had a difficult time with my new camera as I am still getting used to it (red-eye), so i turned them to B & W. Ethan is at that awkward age where he is figuring out what it means to "be natural" so his looks funny, but Aunna and Neeltje look as cute as ever.

These are darling! What kind of camera did you guys get?

It is a Canon IS 5 powershot (I think). It has an 8 mega pixel... whatever. I do my photo editing with Photoshop. That's who gets the credit!

Cool. We are looking into getting a new camera sometime...still checking them out:). Do you use plain photoshop or photoshop elements?

APRIL said...

I have photoshop...but I do know elements. Elements is great for digital scrapbooking, and for photos. It is also less expensive by a lot. you can buy used versions on Ebay for way cheap too...so go there first if you want to save money.

The camera I got was recommended to me by a friend that does photography... you can check out her blog. http://www.shelleyreynolds.blogspot.com/
I think this is the camera she currently has.
