Cupcakes and Textures

Yesterday I baked some muffins for my sisters to take to their Bible study, and I had to take some pictures of them! I used our photo box when taking the photos. The solid background works well for adding the texture.

Doesn't it look good?

I also took some photos of my mom's gluten-free chocolate cupcakes.

The textures I used are from rubyblossom. on flickr.

Vanilla Oat Banana Muffins

For my birthday I got this really great cook book called Muffins Galore. It's filled with dozens of muffin recipes (I've made two or three so far) and can't wait to try more!

The photo is of the vanilla oat muffins. I also added some banana and they turned out quite tasty!

Have a great Tuesday!

Red Barn

When we were on our little weekend vacation, we stopped to get some photos of the beautiful views. There was also this barn that made for a nice photo. It's one of my favorites.

The Magic of Editing

Today I'm going to show the difference between my straight out of camera shot and the edited one.

Here we have the before, a self portrait of myself:
And the after. After a little work in Photoshop, one can turn a good photo into a great photo.

Here are some other edits of the same photo:

A vintage look.

Golden Vintage. This one's my favorite.

The Possum

While trying to catch a feral cat, we have g trapped a few possums. We caught this one yesterday and when we opened the door so it could go free, it just sat there. For hours. He eventually left, but he wasn't in any hurry...

Today's shot is of my friend Renee, who I have known for ten years. I took it at my birthday party, while we were sitting down for dinner.

One of the Blue Eyed Cats

Kokopelli, just relaxing outdoors in some of the nice weather we had not too long ago. I love his blue eyes. Isn't he a pretty kitty? :D

We're going on a little weekend vacation tomorrow. I'm hoping to come back with some great photos to post! :)
