Calendar Sneak Peek

I was just posting on Facebook yesteday about the things that make me late to work in the mornings. One of them is cleaning the bathrooms, and the other one is, well, Facebook. And blogs. My most productive times of the day are in the early morning, both before and after Samantha goes to school. I figure computer/coffee time is best found while Sammi's playing in her room (oh, why does she wake so early??) before I go in to get her, and getting-ready-for-work time is after she's gone to school. Now that my commute's shorter, I have all of that "luxury" time again.

A few of the photographers have sent me some of the images they shot for the DSANV 2010 calendar, and posted them on their blogs. Bethany has a few up on My Other Identity (her photography blog), and Diana Adams of Studio Diana has sent me these images to post here of Brad. I love these shots--I think they have so much heart and insight, and he looks like quite a character. The first image, with his hands over his eyes, is his tribute to the theme of the calendar, "The Eyes are the Mirrors". I think this one is the perfect one to use!

I should have more images and more links to post very soon, as they continue to trickle in.

I leave you with my newest favorite of Sammi that I took at the park a week ago. The original image was pretty awful, and I'd pretty much scrapped it, but then when I started playing around, I got something I really, really liked. Gotta love editing. Now with digital photography, I do have to wonder how many film purists there still are out there, slaving over a developing tank to get the images they want. I like the idea, but you've got to have a LOT of time on your hands for that.

These are great pictures! My favorite is the third one. BTW, you ROCK at editing!

Great photos. I love editing, too.

I don't know what I'd do without some editing...Of course, they don't come out as good as yours! Great job!!!!

Lovely shots - I love the first and third - there is something really rejoicing about that third one. (I don't know if I used rejoicing right in that sentence, but what the hay.)
