My New Purse!

I went shopping yesterday with my sister so that she could get new jeans and I decided I had nothing worth buying, so I just hung back and browsed. Well, we decided to go to Gordmans, and she asked if I wanted to go to the purses, so I said yes for some reason (normally I think the purses Gordman's carries are cheap and ugly). And then I saw it. Right on the end cap was this new, oh-so-adorable Guess purse. The tag on it said the retail price was $105.00, but it was at Gordmans for $49.99. Woooo! I think I did a pretty good job.

Before & After on My Sister, Emily

I am absolutely obsessed with photoshop. I got it about five days ago and know absolutely nothing about it. What I can't figure out to do in Photoshop, I do in Gimp. Now, I'm no professional photographer, and I take criticism pretty hard, which makes it hard to do anything in life. I do, however, love to make over photographs. I always show the finished pics to my family only to get "oh, that's pretty good", which in my mind means "that looks like shit". Although I am no pro photographer ( I own a 6 megapixel camera from like the year 1999), I still love to pretend to be one. Even though the pictures I post may not be ready for the front page of Vogue, I am going to post them here. I would love criticism from strangers, because it's always easier than hearing it from family. I want to take every single comment into consideration, because I want to grow and be the photographer someone would be proud of. With that in mind, here goes my photography section.
