A little while ago I started thinking ahead to that dreaded C word…Christmas! I wanted to do something special for Paul as a gift from Emmy so thought I would go about taking a picture of Emmy then doing something with it (sorry, I can’t tell you what it actually is as he reads my blog and I don’t want to spoil the surprise).
I wanted a natural shot so being camera happy I kept clicking away with my phone camera (only camera I own) until I finally after many weeks of trying found one I was almost happy with. Emmy loves the camera so everytime I point it at her she screws up her eyes and smiles her biggest smile shouting ‘cheeeeeessssssseeeeeeee’ – needless to say they are definately not natural shots.
I had shot black & white pictures as I wanted something different, the picture was perfect except for having unnecessary toys and other objects in the shot. I then sent this picture over to a friend’s husband at Hart & Design
so he could digitally remove the unwanted items and touch up the photo.
Here are the results:
Now I have the perfect picture I was looking for and can go about turning it into a Christmas present to Daddy from Emmy, I’ll show you after Christmas!
