Good morning! as I sit in a hotel room (in the dark) and listen to the hubs (snoring) I’m playing around with one of the new presets that Kim included with The Studio|On Line class. There’s lots of activity and excitement going on in there …
Anyway, I had taken this shot of some hydrangeas early one morning as the sun shone through a frosted glass window in our bathroom. I love the light in there, which is probably why that quote popped into my head. Or maybe … it’s because I’m sitting in the dark? hmmm…
The backdrop is an old barn window (door) which I painted with a creamy chalk paint. It’s a heavy brute so I haven’t used it much. The vignette is natural, captured in camera – gotta love that!

Have a wonderful Saturday!

I really love this preset, my new favorite, well I probably have several favorites of Kim’s but this is one of my favorites. Looks great with the light, beautiful tones.
Love the editing on this beautiful image!

I love this. I quiet, dreamy feel. Oh, and you have the bombshell font, huh? I’m jealous. ;)
Oh this new preset is really making some beautiful stills!! I love your hydrangea and that natural vignette! I haven’t posted an image yet with this but am excited to get one made! Great excitement in the classroom!

I fell in love with this on IG! That chocolate preset is fantastic:) I only put iPhone pictures on IG though because I really don’t know how to put my canon pics on….do you email them to yourself?
Hi Gail – thanks so much! I use Dropbox to transfer my images from my computer to my phone. Do you have a Dropbox account? Check it out and if you have any questions give me a shout!

Oh Barb, your picture is totally perfect! the simple composition, the lovely fresh flower which is luxury during winter, the beautiful light coming from the left side, the soft tones with a subtle touch of green on the stems, the vintage background and this so elegant font (as mentioned by Sarah)… not to forget Kim’s brand new preset “chocolate” which adds subtle dramatic contrasts on your amazing picture…
Simply beautiful, the preset looks great on your image! Still have to play with them, so much to do so little time.
Perfectly beautiful ! I love it !

Oh, it’s beautiful. What gorgeous light! I need to find you on instagram!
This is just beautiful! I love it!

You had me at chocolate! I’ll have to be on the look out for those hydrangeas. I wish I had LR for Kim’s presets. They are gorgeous and I’m loving the work that people are putting out in her classes. This is just scrumptious.
i love this so much…. truly… LOVELY…
always so beautiful Barb.
I love what the preset did to this (already beautiful) photo! Love the backdrop- makes a big difference to the image. Every time I visit your blog, I want to go shopping and redecorate my whole house!
Hopping by to say hello and it take a look at your latest happenings. What a lovely blog with many inspiring creations.
Such alluring images you share along with a backdrop I’d love to make for myself….
I’m working on catching up in The Studio & Be Still but also have also been focusing on things I learned while at Gather. Exposing my work and words is a bit of a challenge for me but I’m going to give it a go as I’m working on my new blog along with mastering the develop module in Lightroom because I’m kinda stuck… Kim’s tutorials should set me straight in no time, right?
Good Day to you, Warm regards… ~ Karla
