Fun with actions

Oh, I have been having too much fun trying out all of those wonderful, free actions for PSE.  I just downloaded these from Paint the Moon Photography (link on the right).  That middle one is my favorite...what do you think?


My sister took this picture in Missoula, MT using the Hipstamatic app on Iphone 4...pretty cool, huh?

Baby A


After no less than 1 hour of searching, reading, and trying to download and use some actions in PSE, I succeeded! Here is an example of a free action called "Lovely" from Prairie Woman (see link on the right hand side of the page). I have to say, this picture did come out quite lovely!

I am trying to learn how to use Photoshop Elements to improve upon my pictures...there is so much to learn! I have read on-line, watched tutorials, and played around, but I feel like I am not even scratching the surface of what I can do. I think a need an extra few hours in my day!

Around the house

Favorites from my garden


Welcome to my new blog! I hope to update this as much as I feel like it! I'm planning to use this blog as a place to post pictures, get feedback, and hopefully document my journey of learning more about the art and science of photography.
