It was so fun to photograph my lovely friend and her sweet children. The connection a mom has with her children is unmatched, and it’s so neat to see.

Tutorial: How to get clear, sharp images

Just a note before we begin- the techniques that I talk about in this tutorial are best applied when you are shooting in manual, or a partial manual mode on your camera. Not sure how? Stay tuned… I’m working on another tutorial that should help. 1. Focus Can you see the difference between these two images? It’s easier…

    Anne! This is super helpful!!! I would love more how to tutorials from you. I love how you give examples and are really great at explaining what you are talking about. I want to buy photoshop but am trying to decide if I should get photoshop Lightroom instead of elements or get regular Adobe Photoshop. What do you think about Photoshop Lightroom?ReplyCancel

      Hey Amy! So glad you found this helpful.

      When I started photography years ago, I got Lightroom. I soon found out that there were things I wanted to do that I needed Photoshop for, so I purchased Elements as well. I wish I’d known then what I know now, cause I wouldn’t have wasted my money buying 2 versions of Lightroom! It’s a good program, but you can do everything you need and more with just Elements (or regular photoshop, but elements is a great starting point).

      Here’s a helpful article from someone who really knows his stuff: http://www.damiensymonds.com.au/what2buy_soft.html

      And in case you’re curious- right now I use Photoshop CS6 along with Bridge (for viewing and organizing)ReplyCancel

    What a great tutorial! I use Lightroom and probably don’t use sharpening as strategically as I could. Look forward to trying this out!ReplyCancel
