Before/After. Katie.

Katie bought some new mascara at Target...she was so happy with how it looked so I took some pictures for her.  The top picture is SOOC or straight out of camera.  It is filmy, isn't it?

All I did was sharpen and run a contrast action on it at 100%.  Oh, and crop.

The second one I added more contrast.
Basically the contrast is just adding black.
Why this makes the filmy look go away I don't know.
But it really is crucial to use some type of photo editor to get such nice crisp, clear results.
(Especially backlit with sun glare issues.)

This little girl started Drivers Ed this morning.

Say it ain't so.

Encourage one another,


  1. What a beauty ♡

  2. Hoping drivers ed goes smoothly for both mom and daughter! :)

  3. Driving? No way.

    Thanks for sharing your process a little. I find my phone photos always need more black for some reason.

  4. It ain't so. But it is. *wink*

    What type of mascara? Inquiring minds wanna know!

    P.S. the photos look very lovely.

  9. I need to send that girl a sample of the life-changing mascara that I sell. It'll set'cha free!!!

    Tyrese has his temps. He drove me to an appointment in Sauk a few days ago and I nearly lost my salvation. It was better yesterday, but I swear I'm closer and closer to keeping some Xanax in a pez dispenser in my purse. 😱

  10. Ps - I love how the contrast sharpens up with that simple filter. She's just gorgeous.
