Preschool Photos at Home

My daughter was all dressed and curled for preschool pictures, so I tried taking a few at home. My goal was to catch her sparkly eyes, and I think I accomplished that, even though the background leaves something to be desired. Above is a photo that I played with in photoshop elements before Scott Kelby’s PS Elements 7 book arrived from Amazon.com.

Here is a similar shot that was edited using Kelby’s 3-step portrait finishing technique. I like the ‘glowing’ effect it gave to the photo.

Looks like I caught those pretty brown eyes here!

And here’s the same shot in sepia.

I tried taking pictures of the kiddos inside our house today, just using natural light from a window. These ones of my youngest daughter turned out the best.
