I have been so busy with my photography...and have set up as a professional photographer! I will show you a few photos that I have taken lately...I am so tired and need to go to sleep...but don't have time. I have had the most amazing response to my work that if indications are right...I am going to start taking lots of booking soon. I have also met another lady at a business course I went to...and she is a real go getter and has some great marketing ideas so I see myself working with Nichola in the future.
I was also published in the Mercanile Gathering again. I hope people love it and make it.
The dreaded sight of more snow on my car....noooooooo Well the big news is....the school principal has given me space there to have a permanent gallery. I had dreamed it and a week later she asked me if I wanted to do it!!!!...I didn't have to think about it. So....on Monday the framed portraits that I took of the kids in December go on show for the parents to buy. My fingers are crossed that they all sell. I will also be called into the school for other special days to photograph the kids too!
I asked a local photo processing shop if I could show my photos there too. I offered my services as a shop assistant in exchange for a wall. She is thinking about it.
I have a few booking this year for jobs and this weekend I have a session with a couple of kids. I hope it either brightens up....or snows alot!!!
So....I have been busy learning as much as I can and hopefully I will be sucessful!
I have been tweaking photos that I took a while ago. I am still on my crash course of photoshop. I am busy editing photos for the school too. I can't share my news yet...but rest assured..I am not pregnant...lol
No thanks! Our cars were covered in salt used on the roads. I was awful!!! Pete got out this afternoon and washed both cars for us. There is nothing worse that having a gritty...white looking sheen on the cars. I like mine nice and shiney!!!
Not much happening here...still trying to figure out how to add photos to a storyboard...one of these days the penny will drop!
Today was dry and the sun was shining....so the whole of Aberdeenshire must've been in the city walking along the beach!!! It was freezing and the waves were wild...and the surfers were out again!!! brrr brrr
I wonder how everyone makes their watermarks with the little drawing????...I have figured out how to do it in 2 steps. I found a little video on youtube by Jack's Tech Corner. He has a few videos and is very helpful.
I was looking at a blog today and the photographer puts her watermark across her photos so they aren't as attractive to steal...well I don't think anyone would want to steal my photos...but just in case..I am going to watermark them from now on. Mmmm I could change the little picture for a change instead of the font!
Today was my first day home alone in 3 weeks...it was so lovely and quiet!! I was so thrilled to have learnt some more things. I downloaded a font from kevin and amanda (google them...wow) and had a heck of a time trying to figure out how to upload the fonts!!! Need to add some more...gee if I was clever I would write it down!!!
Well I am off to bed....the snow is melting so I will be looking forward to photographing some non snow photos for a change. I did get some great snow shots that I will treasure so it wasn't all bad.
Drats...I wish I had've remembered to duplicate this image!!!! This photo was an okayish photo of two people walking along. I cropped it, used Rita's Faded Day Dreams action and put two textures from Shadowhouse Creations and Rita's vignette action ..... and the photo is alot more interesting. I need to carry cards in my pocket and let people contact me if they are interested to have what I have shot of them.
and more snow...and more snow. The photos are nice to take..but I miss getting out in my car because I refuse to drive in it. Last year I almost crashed into my neighbour when I hit black ice coming out of our estate while taking the boys to school...so now I am a chicken!!
The first picture is of Lewis, he is Brennan's best friend. The next two are of Brennan...none of Jordan because he is staying inside. The one of the two girls are strangers...and the final one is of our postie. She has had such a hard time with this weather!!!
I have had a hell of a time trying to load these photos today.....so there is only one...I had a heap that I wanted to show! Well today was another snowy day...and boy oh boy...was it pretty this morning!! Wonder when it will end....or snow again? The morning light is brilliant....I better get up early in the morning to try again.
Will it ever stop snowing!!!! Brennan and his friend decided to go and shovel the path before heading off for some sledding. I am guessing then that there will be no school tomorrow either...nor for the rest of the week. It is really bad over here with the news saying to only go out if it is a must. They are even saying to stay home from work!
Still haven't changed my decorations...not that I had a lot out. It is too cold. I think this year I will have a huge change and put some of my photos up instead and try out a 'normal' house look.
I have been so hurt yesterday and I am not going to bite back. I need to add to you all, if I give you something it is out of love and not because I am 'buying' your friendship. I have always had and always will have a generous nature.
....well snowed in for me. It is so pretty outside today. I think I might go for a walk. I have been so busy learning some photoshop techniques. There is no word on how Tina is going today. The not knowing is so hard. Everything else is on hold, relationship wise. I am not really in a talkative mood because I am so worried about her and her family. I saw a comment on facebook yesterday and it made me so mad and I wanted to ring the person who was so rude but Pete told me not to. I think he realised that everything is raw inside of me. so.....this year....for everyone reading this please try to follow these simple rules (I know most of you do already...that is why I love you).
Treat people how you want to be treated. Conduct your relationships as though they could be your last day with that person. Don't wait to see what someone can do for you...do something for them.
Anyway....that is my hope for the new year.
I have to have a post with a photo...don't know why. This is Miss C again....I have been playing in photoshop and learned how to load actions....don't ask me how..uuugghhh what a pain....but I did buy this gadget to upload them...contact me if you want to know what it is. It cost $10.99 USD.
I am a 42 year old stay at home wife and mother. My boys are 13 and 11 and are becoming 'mature'...so my 13 year old says. My life revolves around my family, photography and friends. We are all Australians and this is our second time living in Scotland.
