A snipit of my European Adventure !

Oh, the Eiffel Tower. On my trip to Europe I had the adventurous opportunity to go to the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. It was so cool! I got to go all the way up to the very top and see all of Paris, a view I though I'd never see. But as you can see God had other plans for me. :) - I took this photo at the bottom of the Eiffel Tower while we waited to board the elevator. I was trying to take as many pictures as I could. I took this picture for a reason actually. I had a photography list I have to complete for a teacher. The one of the topics on the list was, Take a picture of old things. So I put this picture on photoshop and made it look even more ancient than it really looks in real life! Black and white just add more meaning to pictures.

An Artist's Colors

Every time I look at this photo I'm just like,"its kinda odd but cool at the same time, ha ha." I was in my mom's studio one day and I just got this creative impulse and I felt like i need to take a picture and mess on photoshop. So I got a camera and started looking around for something to take a picture of and I found an ink bottle, a tape measure, a flower holder that you put in the bottom of a vase, and some colored pencils. I immediately knew what i wanted to do the picture and I could see the picture in my mind but the challenge was, taking the picture. I just started putting the objects in different positions and finally found one that was let me just say, amazing!

Amazing Slinky Photo !

This past school year was aMaZiNg ! I took a photography class and got to experience a lot of cool things. I did black and white in the Dark Room, digital manipulating, and video. During my digital manipulating session i took this very photo. When I took this photo is was just a last minute shot just to fill the camera up before the bell. When I pulled it up on the computer and messed with it on photoshop I amazed myself with what I had taken! Holding my head high and not caring what other people thought about my picture I showed it to my teacher and he said he really liked it and to call it, "The Amazing Slinky Photo." Taking this photo really boosted my confidence in taking photos, because I knew what I could acomplish. :)

Friends forever!

My friends are one of the most important things in my life. God has blessed me with the most loving and amazing fiends in the world! I have been friends with my five best fiends for a long time,but as you can see only four of us are in this picture. One of my best friends graduated last year, but all five of us still stay in touch with each other and actually see each other alot. I have been best friends with one of my friends for almost 17 years! My other two friends, I've been friends with them for about 14 years. My friends and I always have adventures just us four,but most of all with our church youth group! We're always together! This picture was taken at the park. It was originally taken in color but I thought that it would add memories in some way if were in black and white. I played around with the coloring with this picture,like by adding different colors with the black and white, but in the end this is what I ended up with. :)
Proverbs 17:17 "A friends loves at all times." Thank you God for my friends.

Magenta Beach Chair

This past summer, I was enjoying the summer weather in Mississippi with my grandmother,mother, and sister. It was a total adventure! I love the beach theme. The beach theme is currently what my room is decorated in :) This picture was taken by myself on a Mississippi beach. I fixed it in Photoshop elements 8. The picture itself was originally a very gloomy,gray picture. Well, I didn't like that, because I love the cheerful colors and warm summer air. So, i lightened the picture by adjusting the lighting. I changed the water from a gray to a magenta by cutting out the water then painting it them lowering the opacity.

The White Christmas Tree

This winter, In my beautiful home town, it snowed 8 inches or more! As long as I have lived here It has never snowed so much. It soooo beautiful! I couldnt believe my peepers! It was white ALL around, on the trees,the houses,the roads. It was just amazing. I took this photo in my front yard,one day when it was snowing. I wanted to capture the amazing creation of snow made by my Father. I fixed this photo in Photoshop Elements 8. The picture itself was kinda blury in the background so naturally the eye would draw immediately to the tree and the snow. I sharpened the tree to make it seem more realistic and the perfect detail and gentleness of the snow flakes.When I got into Photoshop I blurred the the background a little more with the blur filter and made it black and white. having the background blurred and black and white makes the person looking a the photo wonder what is in the back ground.I think it is so amazing how God created everything and it all has a purpose and its made flawless and unique just like you and me.Genesis 1: 27 " So created man in his own image,in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them."

Feelin the LOVE !

I'm feelin the love!.....right...about... NOW!
Love is the answer for everything. If it weren't for Christ dieing on the cross we wouldn't have love. "Love never fails" 1 Corinthians 13:8.
In this photo i actually took it with a Kodak digital camera, I found a verse in the Bible that just had the headline as love. I laid my ring on the Bible where you could see the word love through the ring hole. I laid down on the ground and set my camera setting to where I could take pictures of text, and I zoomed in on the word to focus on that so everything else would be blurry. Next, I put it on Photoshop and and brightened the picture so the word love would pop out more than everything else, and would be more white and incandescent. It wasn't the look I was wanting so, I said, let me see how it would look if I made it look sorta like an old photo. Well, what do ya know, it worked! I love my picture so much! It really shows my ability of what I can do.<3
