Day 22

This is my first attepmt at portrait photography on this blog. I got my 2 year old brother to pose for me. Unfortunately, 2 year olds, while cute, do not like to stay still.  I painted on black and white, but left the bear colored to add interest to the photo.


  1. I love this photo! Great job, Grace.

    love, Mom

  2. I love this picture HE IS SOOO CUUUTE! And I love the effect on the bear, what editing program do you use? I always try to edit pictures so they come out like that but I can't ever find the right effect. You're blog is coming along wonderfully <3

    1. Thank you Lydia! For the bear I used It's actually pretty easy. So you get the photo you want to edit, and click on the Black and White Effect. There should be a little pop up window thing that has two tabs at the top the say Effect and Original. So when you first click on the black and white effect it will turn the whole picture black and white. You can then paint on the original color wherever you want it, or you can check the little box in the bottom of the pop up window that says Reverse Effect, then whatever you paint/painted will be black and white, and the rest will be the original color.

      I hope that was easy to understand and that you can get some great pictures using this technique!
