Carpe Diem

In high school this was my motto to do something I shouldn’t be doing… spending money I shouldn’t be spending… Today – I exclaimed “CARPE DIEM” – and put my errands on the back burner when we found the coolest splash park located  behind a strip mall.  We RAN into Old Navy – bought a $5.00 Bathing suit and We Carpe Diemed our afternoon away.





Use this action to sharpen your black and white photos- while sharpening it add that little pop of contrast that Black and Whites need. If you are feeling really crazy – use it on your backlit photos too…Just don’t use it on colored images – as it can alter the color slightly.


+++ This does NOT turn your photo black and white – head over to my actions and check out Black and White affair.

Rebecca - Liz! I dropped off Facebook and I am so glad I found your blog! You were always an inspiration and my favorite photographer. I remember how helpful you always were. I have stopped doing photography for now, but Looking through your blog is reminding me what I love about it. I’m going to take my twins fall photos tomorrow. I hope someday I can get a nicer camera body, I have a rebel xsi now that I’ve had for four years.
Oh also, Liz, I’m sorry to hear about your mother in law, cancer is so awful. I will keep you all in my prayers as you walk through this tough time.
