Shot of the Day


WANNA KNOW HOW I GOT THIS SHOT, HERE IS THE RECIPE:
I shot this over the weekend in my front room using my studio lighting. I used an umbrella light as the primary light (see the round light in her eyes), and a soft box as the secondary. I purchased material at Joanns and used that as the back drop. Then in post editing, I used photoshop and TOTALLY RAD ACTIONS. For this shot I used: Boutwell Magic Glasses, Lux, Prettyizer (at 20 %) and then Boring Sepia. If you are ever interested in how I got a certain look to a shot, feel free to email me and I will share some tips! Have fun shooting...and more fun editing!

Beautiful picture Erin....how are you going to get some pictures with Ruby and you in them? Hmmmmm, I know! You could teach your "assistant" how to do studio shots with you as the guinea pig!

Bobbi said...

So, I take it you are a photographer... I could have used that bit of information about 4 days and $200 ago! Blah, I am such a sucker for pictures. Super cute photo. Your baby girl is so cute! Girls are the best because they get to be the cutest babies!

So great Erin!! I love photo tips, I'm a real dummy! I have taken two photography classes and it's so fun, but when I'm really trying to take a good picture, it never seems to turn out. When I'm just messing around, they are a little better...So, I love ANY and ALL tips and ideas!! Truly inspiring Erin!! Thanks! :)
