Weird! But after a night of drinking, I decided to come home and annoy my hubby with my piano skills. After reaching the end of a lesson book, I saw that I completed this book almost 18 years ago to date!! #wishIwasbetter
I am not a photographer !!!! And I am so in awe of those that are able to capture an image and make you feel that you are right there. I have struggled for the many years trying desperately to reproduce the quality that I see so many others producing.
Today... by pure accident I had an Aha moment.
Yesterday I spent the good part of an afternoon taking product shots for the website. I thought they looked pretty good.... Until I went to start editing.
Yuk yuk yuk.
They all had this horrid blue hue to them.
What was I doing wrong?
I was using natural light in front of a big window! My product looked beautiful.
Ugh..... I'm just no good at this. .
So this morning feeling frustrated yet determined I started playing with my camera. It's a good little camera. A Canon Rebel T3. So I know I've got the right tools. .
Checking all my settings and playing around what do i see.... Yup there was a light setting that I somehow had changed. Jeez!!!!
Ok so I fixed that but still not great.
Then I remembered hearing about this "white balance" setting. So digging further and playing a bit more ....
I think I might have solved my problem.
The two before and after photos above have not been altered. Straight from the camera. It's not hugely dramatic but in the photo editor it's like night and day!
Well it's a start.
So don't give up. Everyday is full of surprises and if you want something bad enough there is usually a solution. Thanks for listening. 📷

All the things to work on, but this is 87% for 4, and it's better than they were at 75% not that long ago. So, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Had "fun" this afternoon. Pop up storms, and they were pretty strong. A cell near us was getting winds 50mph +, and there was hail. When it hit...my panic kicked in. Our son was napping and I was alone. The dogs started getting VERY nervous and my insides were going crazy. I knew something was wrong. It finally died down and then I heard a Facebook message chime in. There had been a small tornado less than a mile away from us... may half of a mile. It did some damage to a friends trees. Joy. .
I have storm anxiety. In 2011, the town I was living in experienced an F5 tornado and it devastated a large portion of the town. My house was about 4 blocks away from where part of the main destruction was, so yeah, my house was hit. I was home with my cats. We survived in the bathroom. Before the tornado, I lived for severe storms. 😶
Not weight related, just life related. .

Enjoy these pics that I took before I decided this would look better with a glitter lip, hint: it didn’t
