A Short Post

So I don't have a very long time to post (I have a limited amount of time on the computer) but I wanted to show you a quick snap shot from yesterday. This is taken with the Pentax. No edits or nothing. It's my favorite of the bunch (which I'll post later).

Oh, times up for me. Tell me what you think!


ps I changed the name of my blog. It's now 'Kreative Photography'. You like?

Happy 18th Anniversary Mom and Dad

Today is my Mom and Dad's 18th wedding anniversary, so a congrats goes out to them. Not to mention I think they are amazing, and really deserve to go out on a date tonight. Have fun =)

Report on the gerbil mishap: Beth is going to get two more baby gerbils to be Lewis' friends. She thinks sometime in September, around the 26th. She is still upset from yesterday, and Lewis seems a little sad. He doesn't know where is friend went, but he's otherwise doing perfectly fine and will soon have two new little brothers =) The breeder told us that the offspring of the mother of Lewis and Clark tend to be really good jumpers. So let's hope Lewis has some smarts...

Anyway, back to my photo posting. As you have noticed this blog will also have little tidbits of news and such, but I will still post one photo per day, so don't worry.

Here is my photo of the day. (taken today.)

And here is my edit of it.

I took this other photo, too. I didn't think there was anything worth sharing about it. But then I edited it...

and I really liked the way it turned out!

That's all for today! I'll be back tomorrow with more photos.

Rest in peace Clark

Today turned out to be a sad day indeed. Clark died. My cat killed him.

Rest in peace Clark, we'll miss you. We love you.

For those who don't know Clark was one of Beth's gerbils.


My New First Post

So I realize that I haven't been posting much, and for this I am sorry. I'm a blogger, so I should blog, so that you readers can read.

But I have figured out a way to fix my problem and improve my photography skills. My plan is to post a picture ever day (or every other day if need be). I really enjoy photography, so what better way to improve then to take photo everyday and show them to the world?

Now I know there are probably other blogs like this, but I never said I was doing this to be different. I'm doing this for me. For fun.

I do like to edit my photos, so if I edit it I'll put before and after shots of it on here too.

So, for my first post I''ll post a picture I took last Sunday and edited yesterday... okay, make that two photos.

This was taken last Sunday when Lauren and I were bored. For those of you who don't know, Lauren is my best friend. I put the camera on self timer (for 10 seconds) and placed it on the top of her mom's car. We did this with a lot if photos, but this is by far my favorite of the bunch.

And this is the edited one. I did make one with words, but everyone seemed to liked this one better, so here it is. I'm really happy with the way it turned out.

Here's the second before photo. Not the best photo in the world, but once you edit it it turns out to be pretty cool.

Here's the after shot. I even made a "logo" for Lauren and I (note heart at bottom right). And if you didn't notice there are pick up trucks in the back ground of each photo ... hmm ... Anyway, those are my photos for today.

I use to edit my photos and lets just say that I really, really, really, like it. You can go HERE to start editing your own photos.
