Fun with Photography

So I was inspired by Karen to do a home-photography session and I got to play with finding the right background, lighting, and editing on the computer. I realized that most of Hanna's photos have been before-and-after grooms, and it dawned on me to do a nice "face" photoshoot.

Here are the results of my efforts. I have a better idea of what a "money shot" is, since from three nice pictures I had to take about 15!

I don't have a nice camera, and sadly the camera on my phone is better than my actual camera so all my photos are from my cameraphone and then edited on my computer.

AWESOME job, Angela!!! From the grooming (would expect nothing less!) to the setting, pose and photography! I wish I could get anything anywhere NEAR as good off my phone. It's an iPhone, and they are supposed to have good camera, but I never get anything I'm satisfied with. I guess I'd just need to practice more!!!

Those are great photos! Hanna is such a pretty girl - it is nice to see such good shots of her face.

Thanks Karen. I have a Galaxy but really can't tell you the specifics - no clue! They did come out nice and I had fun playing with the reading lamp. It's pretty bright, and next to the loveseat so I didn't really get all that creative, just put her near the light. Maybe I should take up photography

How do I submit it for the calendar?
