No Portraits Yesterday

Last weekend I shot the one-week old portraits of Allyssa and this week I was all set-up to do the whole family, but due to some "bug" going around, my oldest granddaughter, Ashley, was not feeling up to par. We'll have to try this again in a couple of weeks. With any luck, the weather will be good and we can try some outdoor shots.

Speaking of outdoors, my original plans for this past weekend was to hop on the Bobcat and start scaping the grass from the garage/studio building site, but that didn't go right either with cold, rain, wind and even snow flurries. Now we have to wait for the ground to dry out again. I'm starting to wonder if we will ever get started on this project, but then again I've been in Indiana all my life and should know how wet and unpredictable spring can be. We'll just watch the weather and wait and work when we can. My goal is to get this project completed before summer so I can spend my free time working on taking Senior Pictures. I've decided I really like taking portraits and would like to shoot both indoor and outdoor venues. So maybe "Saddleback Hills Photography" will have a future and keep me busy doing what I love.

So, being bored this weekend, I decided to play with "Woody", the green screen and digital backgrounds. It just goes to show that there is always something to take pictures of. What do you think of these?
Swimming under Water
Going for a hike
Getting Sunburned on the Beach
A Walk in the Park


  1. These are so neat! Makes me want to go buy some woodies. :) The swimming Woody is especially nice.

  2. OK that's just cool. What great practice too, not that you at ALL need it, they are great! I think Woodys swimming style might be that as if he were on top of the water. Or I suppose it might work underwater that way, I have never tried. :) Very nice work all the way around!
