So this is not one of those blogs with photography to make one drool. Yet, I would like to know how to take better pictures. The more I read though, the more it seems that most blogs with good photos edit every photo they post. Oftentimes a lot.
I so don't have time for that.
Usually the only editing I do is cropping. It takes me 30 seconds per photo, right in iPhoto (at the same time I am deleting all the ones that are terrible).
Mainly I am focusing on learning to get a better photo straight off of camera, but occasionally I try editing to see if I think it is really worth my time.
Here is the original.
Edited with Gimp (a free software)
Edited with iPhoto
It is blazingly clear to me that I don't really know what I am doing, but there are things I do like better about the edited images. Looking at them now I think I should add the iPhoto crop to the Gimp coloring.
What do you think?
I don't think I should fire our family photographer yet!
