My husband had the day off so he got to go with Haleigh to dance while I stayed home with the strep throat kids. I have to admit that he is actually artistically better at photography than I am. Not to mention, my kids aren't used to him snapping pictures so they are less likely to cheese it up. He gets really natural pictures. Pictures that I end up loving. Not because of the image quality...he usually turns my camera back to auto. (GASP!) But, because he isn't so caught up in the whole technical part of photography, he is able to focus on the subject alone. His creative pictures just make me so happy. The ones he came home with today are going to be printed for a shadow box that I intend to display Haleigh's first pair of capezio ballet shoes. I decided to play around with photoshop and make them look more like drawings.
This one seriously made me cry. Look at my tiny, little 2 year old dancer...pointed toes and all. After devoting about 25 years of my life to dance...
she is truly a dream come true.
I can't wait to get these printed to see how they turn out. Play around with the artistic function (found under filter) in photoshop if you want to get really creative and have some fun! Not all functions work with all photos...but you are sure to find the perfect artistic outcome if you play long enough!
