Edit Me Challenge~ {week 2}


    I am soooo excited to link up with this weeks Edit Me Challenge! This is right up my alley! Editing is my second favorite, to snappn pictures. I could spend hours doing it. When this mama has a little "me time",  it's usually always spent playing around in Elements or Picnik. I REALLY need to get more comfortable in Photoshop, & get out of my comfort zone of Picnik! That's one of my many photography goals for the new year!

    This weeks photo was taken by the lovely Miss Tara from Wild Ginger Photography. She is an A-mazing photographer, & SUPER talented. This shot was already pretty fantastic, & was a dream to edit.



    I started out with cropping. I wanted to keep the cute lil Celtics teddy in the shot, but still have most all the focus on the sweet cushy baby. I though that if they have the teddy there it has importance. I then added an ortan-ish effect. I like how it gives the babe a bit of dreamy glow. Then  just softened it up, added focus, then turned it into a B&W.  I hope it does this shot justice. Can't wait to check out all the other edits!
