My home church just had their Vacation Bible School! I was able to get some time to take photos during the activity time! The kids had a great time and I loved capturing all the excitement on their faces!

Give a boy time in front of a camera and freedom to pick his own props and here's what you get! This is actually my Sister's son and we had a great time!

This week's theme at Digital Photography School is "Yellow." These bright flowers were staring at me just outside our door. So this week I thought I'd stray from my usual style of Portrait Photography and post a portrait of this flower for this theme.

This is the first time I've tried linking up with My3Boybarians.com and their Sweet Shot Tuesday. As their website states it, Sweet Shot Tuesday is "a photo linky blog hop that encourages photographers to link up their best shot of the week. Each Tuesday a new linky will be created so you can link to your favorite photo." I just had to post another Portrait of Jay. I had such a great time taking his photo and wanted to share one more photo of him.

Our son Johnathan just loves music! He especially loves it when he is the one making the
noise music! Anytime he gets a chance he will sit up on the piano bench and "play" away!
We can't wait until he's old enough to learn to really play!
I really worked hard to rescue this photo and I think it turned out so well that I hate to show you the original. I was using my fully-manual 200mm f2.8 and somehow completely over exposed this shot. Also, he was standing next to a red truck that cast this awful red glow on the left side of his face. Still, I wanted to see what could be done for the photo so here’s what I did:
1. Applied a Black/White gradient map
2. Adjusted the Levels, bringing up the blacks and lowering the mid-tones
3. Very lightly dodged the highlights and burned the Shadows to further increase the shadows in specific areas
4. Applied a very light warming filter
5. Flattened and saved – Done!
