Until Spring 2008, I was a die-hard film user. I thought digital photos were cheating… if you can’t get it right in a click you don’t deserve to have nice photos. Then I realized how much money i was wasting in film and how far digital cameras have come! Now I am digital-only and I’ve even given into editing. I still try to get a photo as perfect as possible SOOC (straight out of camera), but I think effects are fun.
Here is a fun (and SO fast) tutorial for macbook users. I do all of my editing right now in the free photo program iphoto. If you have a macbook and you don’t use iphoto effects, you are really missing out!! See what I can do with one photo in less than 60 seconds each.
It’s okay. I like the composition, I like the pose… but there is nothing special about it. Let’s crop a little (click edit, crop, and drag the box around the section you want to keep, then click “apply”)
One photo five ways in less than five minutes. Give it a try with your Christmas photos and see what you can come up with!
