white balance in camera raw
touch of light/touch of darkness action ~ MCP Actions
gaussian blur for softness

texture photo challenge ~ i heart faces

i am a texture junkie...i admit it. i've collected dozens & dozens of textures. Among my favorites are the fine art textures from Florabella. i just adore the gorgeous, dreamy, vintage feel they give to photos.

here is a photo of my darling daughter, made that much more beautiful by the addition of the Ethereal texture (overlay 24%) and Vignette (overlay 40%) from Florabella.


when i saw the Texture challenge theme at I Heart Faces, i had to join the fun!

hi there & welcome to my photoblog! i'm betsy, a full time wife & mommy to two adorable kiddos, living the sweet life on the outskirts of Hershey, PA. i'm your typical mamarazzi who discovered a passion for photography through photographing my babies. i love editing my photos as much as i love taking them (maybe more!). i never met a photoshop tutorial, action, or texture i didn't like ... i guess you could say i'm a bit of a photogeek (but don't call me a photographer)! my pictures are my art, my outlet, and it just makes me feel good to create something beautiful. ... oh, and sometimes i do other stuff, too!
