Me on the Web.

Go check it out and give it some comment love so I know you stopped by!

I absolutely love this article... I'm off to experiment with it! Your articles are always so helpful! I'm already a better photographer because of you and your articles on DPS.
Don't stop writing them! :)

Hi Natialie, I love the B&W tips... I have been a photographer by hobby since High School... uhhh ok since the 80's...I am finishing a Bus Degree very soon and have a strong urge to spend newly free time on finding my niche in photography and just looking at everything I can find. I will keep checking your blog from time to time...I'm glad to have found you.

Great article, thanks!I know this is a dumb question, but Ive been taking pics with my new camera and am just not getting the focus part of it...what camera was used for the pic taken? I love how everything in the picture from the water to her face is in focus. I try pics like this, but can only get either the water, or the face in focus....any tips? I have a Nikon D40x

I always enjoy your articles. I want to pose a question to maybe spark an idea to possibly have you write another DPS article.
If money wasnt an issue and you could only have ONE lens, which one would you buy? Nic Nikon D40.

Very nice article and lesson! Sepia is one of those things that is overdone sometimes...you made it look good!

Once again, you rocked the house on that one! I've been playing with Photoshop lately trying different ways to do B/W...this really helped.

Hi there,
I think I am already doing what you suggest. I like the soft color of a sepia like tone, but it has to be soft. I convert to B/W, than switch to RGB, and color balance +15 red, -15 yellow in midtones. I have a pic I did this with in my blog:

I'd love your feedback :)

I really loved this post Natalie. Not only do I love reading your contributions, because I feel like we're having a little conversation you and I, but it really helped me, since I would probably done the same thing as Cindy. So thanks!

found your blog thru this article. I love that you love picasa, I used to use it exclusively as well and now I use picnik exclusively for all my photos. I can't even begin to deal with PS (I have CS2 on my desktop that I never use, I can't and/or I won't!) I sometimes think that PS is wayyyy too much for anyone. I hardly do any post processing and picnik premium suits me just fine! Thanks, Pam

Hey got your respose... I've found a handful of small programs that each do something differernt. I will have to try Picnik. I have been chipping away at PS for a few years and have found a few functions I like, but you are right it's very hard to get started on. Keep in touch.
