    Default Christmas card photo shoot (XP & pic heavy)

    I took pictures today of Kaitlyn for our Christmas card. This is the first time I've set up a 'backdrop' and tried to take pictures on my own ... I chose one, but note to self the next time to do it during daylight hours, the light wasn't very good doing it tonight (I wanted dh there in case she started moving towards the side of the table). DH made me mad though when I showed him the card, he wanted me to add the dog's name (I never have before!) and said if I didn't want to put it on there, we may as well get rid of the dog. A dog is a bit different than a baby.

    Here are the results...

    ETA: I miss Lightroom!! My trial version ran out and it's too expensive to buy, but I would have loved to fool around with these pics with it).

    The one we picked:


    The Christmas card:


    Some of the 'outtakes':

    I really like the second one because she looks like she's having fun, but it was too dark and I couldn't get it to lighten up and still look right, so I picked the other one.

    too cute!! and I LOVE the card!

    I wouldn't add the dog's name if you haven't in the past. your DH is being silly!

    I still need to plan the photo shoot for our family card, but with four kids, it gets to be challenging.

    I have Photoshop CS2, but it didn't matter what I did with it, it looked odd and out of place, if you know what I mean?

    have you tried asking the ladies at the digital editing board? they can help you edit and point you in the right direction as far as editing the picture i wouldn't mind playing with it i have cs3.
