Aira and Arabella - FCC at FLC
I just realized that images can be changed dramatically with a little editing. The problem is that I hate reading manuals - I thought it's a waste of time. But since I know nothing about digital editing, I have to invest some time in understanding the process. We've had Photoshop Elements for a long time but the only editing I did has been "cropping". Currently I am trying to understand the effects of changing color saturation and lighting on various images.
Here are some pictures I edited using the most basic tools. These pictures were taken on a Sunday afternoon (November 20, 2011) while I was with Aira and Arabella - both are kids at the Filipino church we attend in Folsom.

No matter how great a camera is, it will still fall short in capturing the true image of the subject for a number of reasons. That's why editing is necessary. :)
