First Comes Love

Nikon D40
Lens 18-55 1:3.5-5.6
ISO - 400
focal length - 18mm
no flash

So there it is. The first photo in our photo challenge.
I've walked passed this sign several times out at the airport and always found it interesting.

In deciding what I wanted to shoot I thought it should be something unique that I've wanted to take a photo of forever but just never managed to find the time. After all, isn't that the point to this entire challenge.
I did some post processing in Photoshop Elements (Elements 8 to be exact). I upped the vivids, the luminosity and added some lighting effects. Having taken the photo 9am and in the shadows it was feeling a little drab. I wanted to just make the photo "pop".

I'm so excited to begin this journey with 3 of my best friends. I can't wait to see where this takes us.



  1. Just wanted to be the first comment! I'm racking my brain for what to post next. I'm already having a blast!

  2. @S12 - I can't wait to see what you come up with. After I took the shot I was worried that there wasn't enough to build off of. But, I have faith in my friends.
    We need to get some new photos of each of up here. This is supposed to be a photography blog and our headshots stink. Well, Sere's is good but I stole it from FaceBook so it's poor quality. And J's would be great if it wasn't 9,000 degrees outside when I took the photo.
    Anywho... let's go!

  3. Just thought I would post a quick comment from hot and steamy Savannah Georgia!! Excited for my day to come. I'll have to go through pics and see what I can find for a head shot. Can't wait to see Scott's picture and Jay'me's so I can get my creative juices flowing!
