Happy Things: Flickr

Every once in a while I create a photo that catches the eye of so many. I’m still one of the newcomers in the photography field so I still get really flattered. There was no reason for this photo other than taking a picture with Express. It was long overdue since we haven’t had a photo of us that wasn’t a store vendor in some time.  The views and positivity around the photo made it that much sweeter.

Many have asked me in private about the photo and the amount of editing. In my opinion there really wasn’t that much editing done. I’ve kept it really quiet basic; avatar edge smoothing and color boosting the tones overall.

I don’t think I’ve ever really shared this but  I didn’t know anything about Photoshop before I started SL. Sure the minor stuff, nothing like what I’m learning now. Yes, learning. One of the newest trends to help with tricks or learn something totally new is Katey Coppola’s photoshop tutorials. I recommend you take the time to browse them. I found some shortcuts and had some “ah-ha” moments on how something works.

Also, I really enjoy having carved out this little corner of my blog to share positive notes with you. I call it Happy Things. This category was created just about a year ago and its still something that I adore sharing.

I encourage everyone to be positive and support those that are learning and trying new things. So many have made me smile today due to this photo. Thank you a zillion times over for it!

  • […] too long ago, I did a “before and after” layout of a photo I recently took of Express and I. I used the photo on my blog, LunaJubilee.com, and […]
