Easter pics of the kids

Sisters 004I took Cara and Amelia to Greenfield park the week before easter for photos. I think they turned out ok, Sisters 003considering the low light and the fact that I had to scan the photos in. I played around with different effects in photshop also; I’m not too sure about how that worked but I’ll let the public decide. It was difficult managing a four year old and a one year old into position for a portrait style shot, I don’t know how the professional photographers do it – I was certainly Sisters 001about to lose my mind after five minutes. I finally just let the little Sisters 002one do what she wanted while I waited for her to accidentally be in the right position. This technique does not work. Trust me. After about an hour (twenty minutes of which I spent shooting with no film in the camera – aargh!) I finally felt like I had some decent enough shots and twice as many bug bites, so we got on out of there until next year. Stay tuned, more to come as I get them scanned in, cropped and adjusted.

UPDATE: New Easter Pics in the gallery. Much better ones this time.

Photos of WWII

Look at these photos of the second infantry division of the U.S. Army during World War II. Very interesting. I assume most of us have never taken the time to examine and contemplate images of this nature. Hopefully it will make you think. At any rate, if you spend five minutes looking at pictures of the heroes of our nation instead of watching television, well then that’s an accomplishment.

Scanner Photography

Scanner Photography – interesting technique for creating photographic images using old scanners.
