So Excited

Sometimes when I get really excited about something I get sick to my stomach. Not barfing sick but like fuzzy. Obviously I read a lot of blogs. And I always wonder how bloggers make there photos so great! I love the Canon, but it seems that no matter how hard I try, I can never seem to get those soft light, shimmery, magical photos. And frankly I've been using my iphone more to get the photo effects. News flash. Photo editing. The camera came with photo editing software but I could never figure out how to use it. A quick call to my step-mother-in-law confirmed my suspicion that I wasn't a total dunce but the program is not user friendly. So after tons of research I treated myself to Photoshop Elements (a much cheaper version of the Photoshop CS5) and the RadLab interface. Now I can take an overexposed photo like the one below and make it fab!

I'm not a big self-portrait gal. But really. How could I resist?
