just a swinging.....

Grady made Gracie a new swingset and she LOVES it! =) The thing is sooooo darn sturdy, nothing is going to bring it down...ok, well, maybe me and my big booty swinging on it. LOL!! Here's the first official pictures of her just happy as a clam swinging on it. =)









This one, she was trying to kick me....little turd! See, she's not so nice and sweet as most of you guys think. =)



And one from yesterday...



The website is taking a bit longer than I thought...sorry guys. I'm trying to finish some other stuff up for clients but I promise I'll post a sneak peek tomorrow for you. =)

Also....I've been getting a bunch of emails with you all asking questions so I thought like I did a while back.....why don't you guys post your questions here and I'll answer them for you. That why we can share the Q and A with everyone. =)
So ask away.....

Hi Brenda! Love your work, you are a huge inspiration of mine. I have a question for you.... unsharp mask. Do you have 'settings' or do you play with it on each different picture? I just got a new computer and reinstalled photoshop, and lost the settings I had set for it, which i really liked. Now I can't figure it out again!! THX! :)

...also..what was your inspiration to be a *natural light* photog?

I don't have any questions, but just wanted to tell you I love your work. You seem to have a very sweet personality too. My brother lives near you I think (Corinth) He loves it there. Good luck with your website.

My question is how did you learn photoshop? Did you take a class or are you self-taught?

Also, do you swtich lenses often or do you have one that seems to work best for your typical photo shoot?

also, just a reminder that many of your fans are eagerly awaiting your actions in PSE 5.0-compatible form!

Love your blog! It's the one blog I have to check daily to see if you've posted. So, here are my questions...raw or jpeg? And, what about wb? Do you fix it later or custom wb before and with what? Thanks!

My question is do you ever get any pictures of your girls together? Do your girls fight a lot.... is there jealousy? My girls are 5 and 2 1/2 and I have trouble with all of the above. Thx, Becky

Hi Brenda, love love your pictures. I find myself lurking your blog when I need inspiration! I do have a question.... do you have a certain way you enhance the eyes. Also have you taken any classes on light or are you self taught? Also I do love your actions I use them all the time!

Thanks

Hi Brenda, I too am a daily blog checker of yours, love it so much!! I too live in the dallas area (irving to be exact) and wanted to know where your favorite places to take pictures are? also, besides your own actions, what is your favorite photo enhancing tool in photoshop?

Love your blog! Do you ever use a reflector? And how do you get your subjects to open up for you?

Hi Brenda. I too am your blog stalker. I wanted to know where you have your photos printed. I remember you saying how you opened them up and was so happy with the results. I have always printed at home and have not been all that happy with the results.

I'll let others ask the technical questions. What I want to know is how do you pronouce your last name? Maybe a dumb question, but when I see it, I always wonder, "Am I saying that right?" :o)

Brenda I have another ?? How do you upload your pictures and keep them so large. Also what is your process in PS and how do you save things. It seems like to take way to long editing on one picture.
Thanks Teresa

I always love your pictures and I have a question. For action pictures, do you use the auto focus on one-shot, AI focus or AI servo? Or do you just focus manually?

One last thing, I use your actions all the time!! Thank you!!

Hi Brenda,

I am inspired and amazed by your work. I am wondering what camera and lens you use, who your web host (template too?) is and also who you use for your prints. Also, I have Photoshop Elements and am wondering if/when you will have Actions for that in the future? Thanks a bunch for everything!

I guess I do have a question...When shooting younger kids, how do you get them to not notice that you have a camera in your hand? My daughter is just over a year old, and the minute I get the camera out, no matter how sneaky I am, she crawls right up to me, and grabs for the camera.

i've been lurking on your blog for what seems like forever. lol. your photos really are amazing! i hope someday i can take photos as good as you!
i read you answers and i have a question.. would you recommend(sp?) the sigma 30mm1.4? I already have the 50mm&85mm and i love them both but i need something wider.. and i'm not sure if i should go with this one or the canon 35mm or 28mm... ok so basically what i'm asking is if you can tell the pros and cons of it, etc. thanks =)
