My New BLOG!

I have been very busy over the last few weeks, helping Steve set up our website, which is nearly there, getting ready for my photo shoot last Tuesday, editing and burning photos onto discs!

 I have also decided to create a blog dedicated to just my photos!  I will put a post and a link on here every time I upload to that blog,  if anyone wishes to have a look!

So please go to my photo blog HELENA'S PHOTOS (very original I know, lol) to see more cuties like this

Playing in photoshop

Decided to have a little play at enhancing a photo!

This is one of the photos that I took of Izzie at her mum and dad's post wedding shoot (see all the photos on my Flickr account here!

I created this one first!

And then I added a mask!

What do you think???

Which one do you prefer?

Running with Scissors Catch Up!

We have a winner for the captured image challenge!  To see the orginal post go here!  Voting took place in Running with Scissors Shop.  The winner was drawn in front of about 4 customers as witnessess on Monday.  We got some fantastic jars entered.  The jars were a pain to photograph, all the different shapes, so I am sorry if my photos don't do your jars justice.  I am not going to put a lot of writing as this post will be long enough, but if you go to RWS gallery you can see some more!



 Janet - sorry about the photos, but it was really hard to photograph

And finally here is our winner Nicki!!! Congradulations, your jar is truly a master piece!
