Serenity's Silhouette

I got this shot of Serenity totally by accident today! I'm still learning how to use my Canon 40D camera. I was fiddling around with it and changing the settings to take some pictures of Serenity's new beautiful Swarovski flower clip by MiaMoo Designs and I got this shot!

Serenity was standing on her stepping stool in front of an East-facing window in my living room, and I snapped off a couple of shots (no flash) while making adjustments on my camera. It was in the afternoon too - but I wonder what the results would be with the morning sun?

AnyHoo, then I experimented with a few different black and white actions in Photoshop - and this was the result!

I just love it! I especially love her little belly poking out and those adorable corkscrew curls sticking out every which way all over her head!

Do you have a favorite silhouette picture of your child? If not, trying plopping them in front of a bright window and snap away!

Then use the online editing software, Picnik if you don't have Photoshop to turn it black and white. How easy is that?!

If you try it, I would love to see your results! Come share them on my Facebook Fan page!

Have fun!

I have had a new camera for several months now...I really need to get it out and experiment some more.
