In my pursuit to better my capabilities, I am always looking for articles or books to read. One such place is a blog titled MCPactions. In one of the posts they talk about how to have the image look the way you want it to be when you get prints. You can find the post here. I thought it may be of some use to everyone, especially if you are enhancing your image on the computer and then when it comes time to print it looks nothing like you imagined.
The two biggest things I gleaned from this article was size ratio and color profiles.
1. Cameras normally take the picture in a ratio that is different than what options are available to print. So if you take a picture and when you get it printed and things have been chopped (cropped) off this is why. The article suggested using a ratio of 11:15.
2. Wondered why your picture looks different online compared to what you saw on your computer? It all has to do with the color profile your image is saved in. Typically a jpeg in the sRGB with be more uniform across multiple platforms.
Take a minute and read the post, Preparing Digital Files in Photoshop for Print. Plus there are hundreds of other topics you may find useful to you.

Davie Pine Island Park, Davie, FL (aka Bamford Sports Complex)
I saw the nesting site of this little guy last week and knew I needed to get his picture. A buddy of mine went with me this afternoon for an hour or so. We got some great shots.

During the Holidays, no expense is spared to decorate the interior of our home with elves (especially Anna Lee's). These elves however are not of the Anna Lee variety nor at our home. GG (great-grandmother) has these two elves that J just loves. Last year was a different story as they were taller than her.
J has more books than toys. She loves to read in the chair, the car, the bed, and everywhere! I know she probably can't actually read but she can sure fake it. She will scan the pages and turn them one by one. She evens laughs on some pages.
