My love and joy at home…

Will be sharing some of these…taken with my new Panasonic lumix DX5BenAndMommyPanel

Little boy Ben and his little car

I took some pictures of Ben playing with his little car around my Curry Plant. He loved to show his car for my camera and we got some nice pics. I really like how the story boards and processing turned out.   However I used the action “Sweet Honey” from Pretty Presets  to start my editing from lightroom. My storyboards are not perfect.  Nonetheless they are inspired by the ever popular MCP Actions storyboards.

I really am impressed how the use of the wide aperture in these pics turned out. I think I can fall in love with the famous ‘creamy bokeh’.

Now that Liam is bigger, I find more time to play with my camera and get back into rhythm. If he keeps sleeping well through the night, then I get more time to play with editing as well. Whoohoo!

Stay tuned, I have a similar post for Liam coming up and he’s playing with an Indian drum. It’s called ‘The Chenda’.

Free Story Board Actions | July 4th giveaway

1 main 3 small

4 main 1 side bar

**UPDATE** 10/2012

This free giveaway is NOW CLOSED. I apologize for those who still come across this post in the hopes of receiving these actions.

** UPDATE** 9/2011

After sending out different panel actions depending on each request, I have found it easier for me to just send you all the panel actions together. That way you don’t have to choose a certain one and you can try all of them. Unless mentioned otherwise these actions are available anytime. Just contact me.

As you can see, for the past several weeks I have been playing with Blog Board/ Panels. Trying to learn how to make them and getting creative as well.

If you like any of my blog boards/panels just contact me and I will email you the Board action requested. The actions are created with Photoshop CS4 so I do not know if they will work with Photoshop Elements. The reason why I do not have them for download on this blog is because I do not know how to make them available without paying someone to host them.

You must have some familiarity with using actions. Directions on how to download and install them are all over the web. So I have not taken the time to type it out here. However if you have any questions I will be glad to help you understand how to use them and manipulate them to your taste.

So if you are interested just contact me with the subject title “Request for Free Blog Ps Action” and indicate the name of the blog board you are interested in.

Example:

If you have any ideas on how to make files downloadable directly from my blog let me know.  Remember I have the free WordPress blog version and not WordPress 3.1.3 version . Would love to learn how to do that too!
