Our next door neighbor asked what was wrong with the hose and some plastic but what fun would that be? Pat wanted to make sure the kids had a fun fabulous summer day. Mission Accomplished.
I positioned myself just out of reach of the water and played around with action shots. This is a great way to try out action shots of your own. With the action coming towards you there will be less blur.
Ellie made it quite easy for me on this one crawling down the slip and slide.
Here is the original SOOC (straight out of the camera). I punched the color up by making a new layer and then changing the blending mode from "Normal" to "Soft Light". Then of the soft light layer I lowered the opacity way down to 20%. All of these things you can create as an action for yourself to save you time if you do the same thing over and over to your pictures. Then you can do a large number of step quickly to one image or to a whole folder. Like when I put my name on the bottom corner.
It was the best money we have spent in a long time! The kids had 2 full days of fun and exercise, the grass got watered and they even cleaned it all up! Thanks Dad!
