Love


This picture took some doing. I set up the tripod and set the camera to self-timer. Then I took shot after shot of Jeff and I kissing. Since it's evening, the lighting was really poor on all of them, and the camera had a hard time focusing. Rather than give up, I decided to take advantage of the poorly lit shots by aging them - making the unfocused graininess look like it was on purpose! We like the way this turned out.

Poor Jeff, though, was getting a little impatient. Every time the camera took a picture, I would break away and run to the camera to see if it had worked. After several shots, Jeff had had enough! Just for fun, here's the resulting picture (plus it gives an idea of the lighting and focus I had to work with).

I actually really like that picture of Jeff on the couch. It feels to me like it makes an interesting subject. Him looking sad right below the LOVE banner cracks me up...I think it would be really great just including a tiny bit more of him on that one.

I know that wasn't your submitted photo though. I just love it though! :)But I do like what you did overall to age your picture and then put it in that heart. Ahhh...love! :)

At first glance, I thought this may have been a pic of your parents or grandparents! I love it in the heart frame. Sounds like a fun way to get a few extra kisses in too! : ) Poor Jeffy!

You did a great job with making that pic look like an old one. It's like you made your love timeless- like it's always beena and always will be.

- I love the 2nd one too, very cute.
