    Heya.. Long time no See!

    I know I've been MIA for a few months.. My husband got back from Iraq about a month ago, and I've been busy with that and pursuing portraits. I'm working on portfolio building, I think I'm going to seriously pursue a business in this! Here's some recent shots I've taken (all of my daughter)

    Daylab, SX70 Base For sale

    Hey my Alt friends.. I know I've been MIA for quite awhile now. Things are going well here.. My husband got home about a month ago, and life is going back to normal. I've been getting heavily into portraits lately, and haven't really had time for the polaroids. I hate to let it go, but...

    2nd Newborn "Shoot"

    A friend of mine had a baby in July, and I offered to take some pictures for her so I could practice. We ended up talking for a long time, and by the time I took the pictures, Caleb was a little cranky, but I did get a few good ones. He has an older sister that I think I'll take pictures of...

    This was taken today at the park with my daughter. I was wondering what everyone thought of the conversion/treatment in Photoshop? I think I like it but not sure if I've gone to far on it (I tend to do that!) The original is attached if you want to see.

    And Beyond

    I took a trip to the Oregon Coast at the end of July and took this shot. Tech info: Taken on Canon Elan7, Velvia ISO100, I can't remember exact stats, but Lens was my 20-80mm. It's scanned from a slide, so there's the loss of quality there, but it came out pretty good, considering. I...

    Has anyone used or heard about the New York Institute of Photography program? I've been reading about it for a month or so. A friend of mine is doing it, she said she really is learning a lot. It seems to cover all the bases, and that's what I'm looking for. I have seen similiar programs that...

    I shot some Velvia slides awhile back and has some 4x6s printed.. I LOVED a few shots, so wanted them blown up on an 8x12. I dropped them off to the same printer that did my 4x6s, and just got them back today. All of the shots are dark and flat, the color is just no good. But when I look at the...

    From 7 to CS2

    I have PS 7, but I've heard a lot about CS/CS2.. is there a lot of differences between the 2? I didn't pay for 7 (was given to me), so don't have the money invested in it, and have toyed with the idea of buying CS.. just wasn't sure if it was worth it.
