I heart photo classes

I had the opportunity to attend an all day photoshop/photography class last week. I learned a lot from it and I am even more inspired now to take classes and get all the experience and education I can in photography and photoshop. I've had these photos in a folder on my computer for awhile, not knowing quite how I wanted to edit them. Thanks to some techniques I learned in the class I was able to edit them to get the look I wanted. The car wasn't origionally that color, and I added some warm tones to the overall photo. The gazebo photo had a huge telephone pole right in the middle of the background that was very distracting. I'm so grateful for the amazing photographers out there that are so willing to spend time educating others.

Week #9


My first ever "soft" waterfall photo. I didn't have my tripod, glad I was able to hold still enough to get this shot.

Lacamas Lake

We have had the most incredible weather here the past few days. Can't beat blue skies and 60 degrees in February, I love it. It gets me out in the sunshine and taking pics. We have a beautiful lake here with amazing forests that surround it and endless walking trails through it. So, on Saturday we went with some friends for a walk. No matter how many times I walk through this area, Im always still in awe at it's beauty, and that I live HERE to see it all..whenever I want.

Week #8

Depoe Bay, Oregon. A favorite oldie but goodie pic. He is my valentine every single day of the year and I'm so lucky to have him. We have lots of amazing memories at this beach. It's one of my favorite places in this world to be and I'm so glad I get to share it with him.

Week #6

Jantzen Beach Bridge. I remember going over this bridge for the first time when we moved here. It's still one of my favorites. I love living so close to the waterfront, it's so beautiful especially on clear bright days like this- at the end of January.
