I'm posting out of order today. This week I'm taking pictures of Maya's favorites and I want to post those all together. Here are some goofy pictures to fill in the days we didn't do favorites. I took these photos today inside without my flash. My flash is upstairs in my bedroom and both times I wanted to take the picture before I lost the moment. This shows you how much I hate my built in flash. I'd rather have a grainy photo than a super bright built in flash photo. I did try to take a few of Serena with the flash but they were awful! Did you see my previous post? That one actually turned out ok!! :)
Here's a silly photo of Alison. She was sitting at dinner all bunched up like this. It really made me laugh how rectangular she was with her head scrunched in. Then I realized with that black shirt the reason it looked so funny to me is that she looks just like the Jolly Roger!!! ha ha
I love these pictures of Serena! She was recounting her tales of visiting the queen. She can go on and on with her stories and they vary between being quite imaginative and completely random. This story even included a missed trip to space because they didn't have a the right space clothes. I love how much she gets into it - you can see from her expressions she is in full blown drama mode.
And here is my photo tip for the day, maybe. I have a terrible time with Serena's skin tone with indoor photos when my white balance is off. With Alison and Maya's pale skin I have less trouble removing the yellowish cast but when I do the same thing for Serena her skin ends up too gray, but if I warm it back up it's too yellow again. Today I was adjusting these photos while she sat next to me. I finally added a sepia photo filter to these pictures and her skin tone looks so much better. I'm anxious to see if this works for all my photos. Really I should just learn to use a card and get my white balance right in the first place and/or shoot in RAW. Both of these photos were so yellow to start with there is only so much I know how to do to fix them.
