I hope the week is treating everyone good so far! Today I thought I’d show you a layout that I made yesterday. Cocoa Daisy’s February sketch is so cool! I really love Emily’s interpretation of it, and although I like doing my own thing, I kept very close to the original sketch this time.
You see, my niece is a show jumper and I always go to her competitions to photograph her. Most of the time, the photos are like the one you see above. They’re not terribly good, especially not when she competes indoors. The photo above was shot at ISO6000 due to the poor lighting. It’s hard getting good photos in those conditions.
But then there are the times when it’s possible to get her to stand still for a few seconds at a time, like when they’re preparing the pony for transport. I got some very wonderful photos of that on Sunday…
I really like how the colors turned out. Much is due to the overcast weather we’ve been having; lots of indirect light! I could just print it in colors, but that would mean a tougher choice when picking patterned papers and embellishments. An easy solution is to covert to black/white.
There are many sites out there that offers free Lightroom presets/Photoshop action. I have a set that I really like, but I also make my own presets (a preset is a one-click edit based on previous edits that you save).
I love the look on her face here, so in-tune with the pony. They’ve really got a special bond.
That’s what I wanted to scrapbook! There’s been a few articles in Norway lately, reporting research showing that female leaders often report to have been involved with horses lately. It is believed that the skills such a sport requires prepares the girls for leading positions later in life, having taught them good leadership skills. I don’t doubt this at all!
THIS LAYOUT WAS PICKED UP BY SCRAPBOOK TRENDS. LOOK FOR IT IN THEIR AUGUST 2013 ISSUE!
I kept this page fairly clean’n simple. I matted the photo with 3D foam dots to give it more depth and embossed the arrows on the bottom patterned paper-strip.
I wanted to keep the title bold and dominant, but added small touches to it by using some red alphas in addition to the black ones.
The journaling is about the research I mentioned above and how much I believe this to be true.
If you have not checked out the sketch, I urge you to do so, and also take part in the challenge. Click this link!
Have a good day, everyone!
