52 weeks - weeks seventeen and eighteen.

 The past two weeks photos have been more photoshop oriented... which is something that i need to practice  - learning new techniques is fun, but sometimes tricky to achieve perfection.  
 this is the most recent shot - week eighteen.  cynthia, crashing a tea party :)
we photographed the tea scene first, then shot cynthia on a plain background after - so i could 'cut' her out and place her in the scene.  i kept the lights in the same spot so the angles of shadows would be the same, but it was tricky getting the angle of view (looking downward) to match - as well as where her hands would be placed, etc.  overall, i think it's cute.
week seventeen was during all the madness of moving into the new apartment.  actually, i did it a week late, but will make up for that with 2 shots in one week soon.
the photo represents how things felt for a little while - all jumbled around, nothing in the right place, a bit chaotic.  here's hoping we don't move again anytime too soon.
 i am about 50% satisfied with the shot.  i didn't give myself a ton of time to edit, and would have liked to fix things like shadows - and when i look at it now i hate the box in front.  i will re-edit this one in the future.  it was fun to shoot, a little tricky, but i love having a remote control for the camera for stuff like this :)

it's a long weekend here! i'm shooting some portraits tomorrow, then hoping to do a few DIY projects around the new apartment.  we had brunch on the balcony in the sunshine this morning, it was lovely.


thank you for leaving a comment! i love to know what you think :)
