Concert LO – How to Save a So-So Picture

I wasn’t in the mood for scrapping tonight, but then I got inspired and ended up doing a page I’m actually very pleased with! πŸ™‚


Paper from Party Hat, buttons from Little Bits and date stamps from Project 365 – 2 (all with some recoloring) by Sugarplum Paperie

The best part is that this is not a photo I was planning to scrap because while (quite extraordinarily! πŸ˜‰ ) DH turned out pretty well, all the members of the choir around him are either making funny faces or are moving around like crazy (there was very poor light so I needed a longish esposure – 1/20), or both!
Selective coloring and some cover-up elements really worked well here!
Had I cropped the picture, the impression of DH being in a choir would have been completely lost!
So, I’m really happy I took pictures at the concert, despite the poor light and the difficulty of shooting when DH wasn’t hiding behind the music or making ugly faces. πŸ˜‰ Another major drawback is that I felt really uncomfortable taking pictures because of the shutter noise.. I’m pretty sure nobody even noticed, but that didn’t help me avoid feeling guilty as I was shooting. πŸ™‚
