I have been married for 44 years. I have two daughters and two granddaughters. I have always loved photgraphy but never took it seriously until the past couple of years. I got a Canon 40D and loved it. I took some photography classes at Bedford’s Cameras in Little Rock, AR. I recently upgraded to a Canon 7D, which I love. I love nature photography and you will find that is what I take the most photographs of. I love all kinds of nature but especially love Butterflies and Humming birds.

    Your images amaze me. This is soooo beautiful Brenda. I love all the background colors. And what a great capture of the lady bug. Well done, my friend.

  • Thanks so much Sheryl. What I did was to choose a colorful texture(this one was tulips) and I put a Gaussian blur on it to tone it down a bit and then applied the texture. I appreciate your nice comments so much Sheryl.

    Well you do amazing work! I am so envious of you that you learned how to do all that and I can’t seem to. so frustrating. lol

  • Sheryl, you will get it I am sure. I wish it were easier to tell someone how to do it by typing. You are a smart lady and you will get it. I am going to look for the info I learned some of it from.
