I got caught in a hail storm on the walk back from rehearsals today. & then there was a rainbow outside & the light was gorgeous so I went to take photos & it started hailing again. I didn't know if my camera would respond well to hail so I zipped it into my sweatshirt & then sheltered under this rose bush that grows up the side of our house. Not fun. But also kinda fun.

 

I need to remember to use my Mom's computer tomorrow so I can photoshop some of the window shots!

 

Hannah was actually jumping quite high here, but the way I cropped it hides that. There was way too much overblown floor.

I'm glad I got explore as at first I wasn't sure it was worth the effort.

I had to spent ages finding the right crop.

& then it was too saturated.

I pushed it into b&w & then lazily painted her body back in.

Then her legs looked too orange so I had to desaturate that.

& it still looked horribly bare, so I messed around with a vignette.

& the crop still wasn't right so I had to look at that again.

It seems so simple looking back on it.

But there were just so many things wrong with it originally.

People like it though, so that's a good thing.
