6.28.12 – Jamie’s Goals: Week 3

28 Jun

Time is flying by, and it is already week 3 since I set my goals.

For photography, I edited some pictures using this tutorial in addition to some things I learned in a photography book I finished this week. The book is called Understanding Digital Photography by Bryan Peterson. I wanted to learn some quick editing techniques in Photoshop to enhance any picture I take, and I’m pretty pleased with what I have learned so far. Basically, I have been playing with filters as well as adjusting the levels, colors, and hue/saturation.

Here is a before/after example:

The differences are pretty subtle, but that’s what I was going for – things I can do to adjust/enhance most pics I take. My main issue with this picture is the sky is blown out because of the time of day (the sun was too bright during Kyle’s marathon). I’m still learning. 🙂

For my craft project, I took my second sewing class at JoAnn Fabrics.

Here is my luggage tag creation:


Definitely not perfect, but the instructor’s wasn’t either, so I didn’t feel so bad.

On to planning next week’s projects. Have a great weekend, everyone!
