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!

Fix It Friday #62

My favorite day of the week, Fix It Friday from I ♥ Faces

It’s been a while since I’ve edited of the photo’s, it’s seems like life gets a little crazy sometimes.  But we need to stop and do something enjoyable, and editing photographs does just that for me!

FIF 7-16 Before

The before picture is one Amy took of her little girl last week while they were visiting grandma.

Editing steps:

* Import into Lightroom 3

* Adjust exposure, correct white balance, bump up the blacks, clarity, and vibrancy.

* Crop just a little.

* Lightroom adjustment brush ~ smooth skin and brighten eyes.

* Open in Photoshop CS5 and run the following actions and added texture:

Florabella Luxe  ~ Try them all, settling on a combination of Ambrosia @ 62% and Gypsy @ 21%.

Florabella Luxe ~ Sharpen and Defog.

Patti Brown’s Supernatural Texture ~ Fantasy II - Overlay blending mode @ 62%

* Sent back to Lightroom 3 and used Nichole V’s Sun Flare Preset ~ Land Sun Flare Gentle Left.

Framing done with The Album Cafe’s  ~ Ribbon Blog It

FIF 7-16 After

Then I took the edited photo and ran it back to Photoshop CS5 and ran the following actions:

* childish david’s ~ B & W Magic Dark @ 62%.

* Florabella Luxe ~ Sharpen and Defog once again!
