Great use of the blur Heather. It gives a 3D look to the photograph. Very unique- I think it's cool! The light placement is good as well. :)

Happy New Year! #580901

Thanks so much Lavone! I had a lot of fun with this family... they were so open to letting me experiment. We all had a great time with this shoot...

This is wonderful. I lik story telling photographs like this.
Did you use a lens baby to get this effect or is it post processing? Looks great. :) #3776167

Thanks Jessica... I used a post processing filter - Gaussian Blurr, in Adobe CS2. I just added and subtracted different percentages of the blurr until I got the look I was going for.

I just looked through your whole gallery -- You are such a talented photographer with so many fresh and new ideas. I wish I had discovered your gallery earlier on -- I have saved your gallery in my favorites and will be back often to look for new additions.

Have a great day! :)
