2012 | A Boy and His Cats

For so long I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do with this little space of mine. I even disabled it for awhile. Ultimately I have found myself missing posting pictures of my family. I still post them online on Facebook, but it's not the same as having them all in one spot for them to someday look back on.

I have been doing some house cleaning on the blog, I gave it a new clean look that I am excited about! My hope is to do some posting from the past. In 2012 we got our first family pet, her name is Lucy and she is a Ragdoll kitty.

Online Photoshop Class

Thought I would share this over here too. Many of you have expressed and interest in taking an online Photoshop class from me, well I am excited to announce that I am now offering online Photoshop classes! Smile

I remember when I first started out on my photography journey, I had no clue what I was doing in Photoshop. I thought if I bought a lot of Photoshop actions all my problems would be solved. Not so much. Don’t get me wrong I still use some actions, but today the majority of my editing is done with steps I have learned through trial and error. You don’t need actions to have great edited images.

My class is a one on one class, we will even edit some of your images together.

Here is a little of what you can expect to learn:

- skin smoothing and tucking, teeth whitening, bringing out the eyes

- how to do a black and white

- head swaps

- how to apply a texture to a photo

- how to change colors

- how to pop colors

- how to sharpen for web and for print

- how to remove distractions from your images

- and so much more!

Cost: $200 

I am offering $25 off for the first 5 people that sign up.

The class is open to anyone!

If your interested or have any questions please email me at:
