There's only 12 more days until Christmas...do you know what that means?



It's time for my second annual Christmas Photo Countdown!


Last year I took a Christmas-y photo each day and shared it here on my blog. I also tried to give a bit of photography advice accompanying each picture. This year I'm changing things up just slightly. My photos will all involve my newest little photo prop, Lily, AND I'm inviting you to play along. Check in on the blog everyday to see my photo and also send me a link (katie@keytopictures.com) to your blog/flickr page/snapfish account to view your holiday photo and I will "pin it" to our special pinterest board so we can all join in the fun!

Today is Day 1:
And day one's picture is the one I used for the logo above. Here is the original photo, SOOC (straight out of the camera)...
 The details for the photo are as followed:
Lily is laying on our bed and I'm using natural light from a window to her left.
ISO 400, 30mm, f/1.8, 1/125th sec. 

Edits:
Cropped to a square
Increased brightness to +30
Increased temperature to +2
Increased vibrance to +33
   
*edits are done in Adobe Lightroom






 Spread the word and join our holiday photo adventure! Feel free to copy this picture (right-click on the image, click "save image as...") and have it link back to my blog...


  I am keeping everyone posted on the Christmas Countdown and happenings via my NEWSLETTER, so if you still haven't signed up yet be sure to do it! (And as a bonus you also get my free articles teaching you more photo tips!) Look all the way up on the sidebar. ---------------------------->>>
