A photo I'm actually happy with!

This doesn't happen very often, that I take a photo and edit it to the point I actually *like* it!



Zack rarely sits still enough for me to take any photos. The only way I managed this was by putting on Spongebob Squarepants and sitting him in front of the living room window for some decent light.

I can't believe this little guy will be going to school in just 6 months. SIX MONTHS! He is such a handful, but a kind-hearted little guy. I wouldn't change him for the world!

Just in case anyone wants to know the details: taken with my 50mm at f2.8, 1/125sec SS and 200 ISO.

I opened it up in Lightroom, bumped up the exposure by +1.75, and contrast by making an S-curve in curves, cropped it and then took it over to PS to sharpen it for web and resize it.

Finally starting to see the light with Lightroom (pardon the pun!) and I'll definitely be looking into more tutorials etc on it soon!

Hope you all had a great weekend. :)
