Crop: Theme Thursday

Yeesh. Way to overload the blog this week, Micaela! 3 posts in 2 days!

So, it’s February, Theme Thursday-ers.  I’m excited to switch things up this month and do some work in post-editing.  I’ll be honest and say that my procrastinating self is happy to not have a deadline of “sunset on Wednesday.” I do my best blogging after bedtime, and I’m happy to scroll through the photos I have on my memory card to find something that I can use to practice on.

This week the theme is “Crop.” I used a couple photos from our Christmas vacation at my parents’s house and guess what? These pictures aren’t even of my kids!  How out-of-the-box is that?

How did you do with cropping this week?

Next week we’ll play around with the exposure.  Here’s a helpful lesson on it getting it right while shooting. But if you don’t (I rarely do), here’s some tips for cleaning it up afterward in Photoshop, or this way in PicMonkey
