holly's pictures

Awhile back I tried using my fancy camera. The results were less than stellar. It's hard to work with a two-year old. I made a bunch of tutus and have big plans, but I need to figure out this camera.

My editing software is almost nonexistent. I used Pages to compile these photos into one shot. I know! PAGES! To take this shot, I used a tripod. Then I cropped the photos appropriately and laid them on each other.

This is pretty much the only good shot:



I LOVE IT!

  1. What kind of camera and editing software do you have? I went to school for 2 years for photography and I'd be willing to see if I can help? Those Tutu's are adorable :) I have to say you did a pretty good job with the composite :)

    1. My camera is a Canon EOS Rebel sx DSLR. My software is nonexistent. I cut the picture and put the second next to the first etc. I know so very little about photography. I've tried watching a couple of YouTube videos but in the end they were not helpful. I want to get better but I don't want to waste time watching a video series that will ultimately be no good. Do you know of a book or a video series that is good? I really need help! Thanks!

  2. A good editing software is adobe lightroom combined with photoshop. Shooting in RAW as opposed to JPG gets you the best results and the most photo information to deal with. Lightroom has a tool that will allow you to create a panorama in photoshop. They offer a student/teach discount available to homeschoolers as well. I shoot Nikon but the principles are the same. If you're going to spend a lot of money on a camera it will make the expense more worth it if you know how you use it :) I don't know about any books. We did all hands on learning in school, the small classes were great! I know the odds of us being close enough to meet up are slim to none but maybe we could try like email "lessons" or something? Start with camera settings and go from there so you can get the most from your camera? you can email me if you want. kfitzgerald900@gmail.com

    1. Kim, Here's what I found: http://www.r-photoclass.com What do you think of this? I'm going to try going through this "class" and see where I land. I'm going to remember your offer though.
