Never Fear!


Finally it is cool enough to light my candles. Early early AM, I decided to play with my settings on the Rebel and the first few were very very dark. 

NEVER FEAR my Kindle is Near.

Page from book open in Kindle app


I found a Photoshop elements instruction book for 2.99, kindle edition. I quick downloaded it and the page was so small  I could not follow the instructions. 

Never Fear! A blogger friend is near:

Ann at Snap Edit Scrap   said download the Kindle app to my PC and I did and now I can view the instructions on my 26 inch monitor


 Above is out of camera, much  to dark, the next two are fiddled with by following the instructions
                                       (the last 3 photos are the same photo)

Love the new header

It sure does make a difference. Your header is nice. Tell me is your desk always so neat and tidy?
If you want to make the lights turn into stars you set your cameras with a high Av number (small aperture) naturally the speed will slow down to let enough light in so you need to use a tripod.
Try It!
Enjoy the doggie show.

terrific shots! love all of them. it's really hard to pick a favourite. i have to say that first one has a magic feel to it. i am always in so deep awe of your ability to use techno like that.

enjoy the festival!
happy weekend~

Maple Lane said...

Happy to visit your blog :)

You're so smart. I cannot understand any of those photoshop direcctions. I just gave up trying. Course not I need a camera to do anything. Alas!

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Also glad that the a.m. Is dark enough for coffee by candlelight, which is our usual customary start to the day. Your candles are lovely, Sandra.

Miss Debbie said...

Candle holders are pretty and I love oil lamps. Neat shots! Have fun at your festival!

Muffy's Marks said...

Cranberry Morning said...

Okay, I know I use the word 'gorgeous' way too often in response to your photos, but... I love the warm glow. So cozy looking.

Enjoy the canine festival. Wish I were there to go with you! Arf

i liked them all!

Rose said...

I like all the photos...even the straight out of camera one...

Rose said...

PS--If I have a hard time deciding which book to read, I will look at them on my PC Kindle--it shows the covers and sometimes the cover does appeal to me...

Chatty Crone said...

Technology is amazing and isn't is great to get help from our friends? sandie (Like you have done for me - thanks.)

George said...

You did a great job with your last photo. I'm glad you could read the instructions on your computer. I hope tomorrow's fund raiser is a big success.

Betsy Adams said...

I love my PhotoShop Elements. It can certainly help when it comes to a photo which is too dark, or one which is too light.... Love it!!!

Great pictures --and I meant to tell you yesterday that I like your header.
Hugs,
Betsy

Madi and Mom said...

I love these photos, they all look just perfect to me. But it is great the way you take the time to learn, to work on them, to make them just the way you want them. Beautiful!

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Gorgeous pictures. I like the darker look almost as much as the last picture.

Ann said...

There is something so wonderful about candlelight. Even better when you combine it with snapping fun and photoshopping. Glad I could be of assistance.
Enjoy the canine festival

Goes to show experimenting and practicing pays off...I like your new header also...your desk is very similar to mine.

LindyLouMac in Italy said...

I love candlelight as well but unlike you do not wait for the cooler weather. We use them a lot in the summer as well, often when dining outside.

Catherine said...

Some very lovely lighting Sandra! Good job!
Hope you are having a most wonderful Saturday!
xo Catherine
