the ADOBE 15.

corn chips
cream cheese with a bit of bagel
lattes with whip cream
red wine

although i admit i have indulged (seriously indulged), i blame none of the delicious items above for the 15 pounds i have gained in the last three months.

the blame, 100% of it, lies with these two FABULOUS and ADDICTING software programs:

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3; and

Adobe Photoshop CS5.

they are just plain amazing and make being a photographer just that much more awesome.
so... for the past several months, the time that i normally spend walking the dog, practicing (wii) yoga, going to the gym, or attempting to master the shake weight (if you have never seen the video of ellen degeneres trying out the shake weight, you are missing out and need to watch it here. she makes it look so easy. believe me, it is not.),  i have instead spent sitting on my booty at the computer happily editing images.... lots of images. for hours - doing fun things like this:

here is the o.g. pic of the lovely miss kaitlin:

here are 6 fun ways to play with it:

this sort of super fun playtime does not bode well for my backside.
or my front to be honest with you.

so... not setting any exercise goals in stone just yet (because those goals never work with me anyway) but I am going to make an effort to get much quicker at editing.... which means: lots more practice. fun. yay.

  1. Go ahead, indulge! Good things are coming from it! Love you sis!

  2. I just started Jillian Michael's 30 day shred. It is effective and only takes away 20 minutes of editing time.

    Awesomely fabulous edits, btw! :)

  3. ....not to contribute to your delinquency, but here are some fun Lightroom Presets I hacked together. Play with 'em and have fun.

  4. I'm not sure if I could pick a favourite. I haven't done a thing photographically. And here I thought I had an excuse working part time, but you've blown that one out of the water.

  5. Cam - Who you callin a delinquent?! aha!
