Thanks for taking a picture of me Jana! You are amazing!



Well, it's me of course! Hi, I'm Scott, just an ordinary guy who loves life and all the little nuances that it brings! Simply put, I'm a father to a wonderful son, a husband to a beautiful wife, and an amateur photographer who enjoys looking at the world through a piece of glass! I took up photography a couple of years ago, after having gastric bypass surgery. Since 12/07, I have lost 180 pounds, but found a real passion for documenting life with my camera. I could say that the big names out there have inspired me, and they have, But my true inspiration comes from the people I meet everyday who share the same thoughts and zeal I have for photography. We are truly blessed with some really great photographers around Nashville. So, what are you waiting for.... ...grab a camera, snap some pics, and enjoy life to the fullest!

Well, it’s time once again for a Fix-it-Friday over at I Faces , and this one was hard. The shadows on the right, and the over exposure on the left. Like I said, this one was tough!

Edited photo

Corrected exposure using layers. Then went on to use a couple of filters from NIK Color Efex Pro, specifically “Lighten/Darken Center” and “Glamour Glow”. Then added a vignette around the edges. I used PhotoShop. Lightroom and Nik for my photo editing.

I know it’s not perfect, but it’s better!

Art is very subjective. I’ve truly learned what the statement “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” really means. What I find nice, others may find appalling. But that’s OK, cause the only person I have to please is me…I mean my wife!

Oh yeah, what else can you do when your back is down and out…


Have fun!
