Oh boy! I have found a new love in life - photoshopping! Thanks to the very talented Fiona I have learnt a lot and am having so much fun trying new things on my photos. I still have a lot to learn, but am finding I'm getting faster and not having to re read my notes all the time about the things she has taught me.
On Saturday Jalen, Harri and I went out to do a few things and decided to go up to the Gorge for a walk. I could spend hours just snapping away with my camera and the boys are very patient with me - usually letting me take whatever photos I want. It has been so fun to come home with some photos and start playing with them in photoshop. These are a few we took on Saturday.
Harri was laughing at Jalen when I was teasing him about a girlfriend - trying to get Harri to laugh - it worked!
Harri is such a great poser! He went up to the sign and said 'Mum!! Take a photo of this!' as he stood there and posed for me.
He then went a layed on the rocks and straight away knew how to pose (thanks to Fiona doing a photoshoot the week before!).
Jalen on the otherhand is very hard to get natural looking photos as he always seems very tense.
In the end I told him to not look at the camera as he was trying way too hard :)
The boys loved doing some fun jumping shots for me.
It's so easy now to just waste my days away photoshopping instead of the things I should be doing - like housework. I think it's a good waste of time though - as I remind Aaron - I'm preserving memories :)
