Keepin' it Real

"Life without love is a shadow of things that may be."


Okay, I admit it... I took this photo back in September. I'm currently rocking my new baby and can't bring myself to put her down just to set up for a photo (that I have no good ideas for anyway.)

To give the colors and shadows a little more pop, I duplicated the layer in Photoshop, and then changed the top layer's blending mode to soft light.

Oh, and I actually took the photo by hanging camera around my neck and using the timer.

Way to get creative with how to take the shot. I was wondering how to do a shot like this. Nice job. I like the lines that it creates

Neat photo. And who can blame you for wanting to spend time with your baby?

I love how vibrant the colors are. I alwasy wondered how people had these shadow pictures done without the camera showing. Nice job. And like everyone else, I love the quote.
