    These are being printed into a photo scrap book for a birthday present...

    The photos are of the places at night because that is how they are remembered, she's never been to them during the day.

    Yes I know photographically this one is boring but, thats not whats mattering for this really...

    Muvico theaters, looking at it on my uncalibrated monitor makes me want to bump the exposure back up some

    Minigolfing, corrected WB was very orange, I have others of the the actual course but I have not processed them yet

    Underexposed on purpose, any lighter and it takes away from the lighting of the walkway, this plaza is where we went for her 21st bday, and no we didnt go to the cheesecake factory, but that walkway there has significance oddly enough :o

    The house that she melts over when we walk along the channel on Davis Island... I bumped the exposure down but on this laptop it looks like it needs to go back up

    and the towers in the city, she's always looking at the cityscape when we are walking around town.

    Boring snapshots I know but would you print them in a photo album sort of scrap book for a chicks b-day :o


    This coming weekend im headed to disney world to do all the stuff she liked there and capture it, only have 3 weeks to get this done now.


    Significances:
    Theater = we go there often to watch movie
    The Fountains are at the GO-Kart track, they are in the minigolf area

    The Walkway - to the right is the restaurant I took her for her birthday but we hung out on the walkway in the cold talking about everything waiting for a table, and she kept commenting how cool everything looked with the overhead lighting

    The House - a house she swoons over when we're walking along the channel
    The city - when we are downtown she keeps staring at the skyline

    I think you will score big time with this. Good job. Are you going to make the scrap book yourself or are you using a program?

    100% on my own the only thing I am doing is for each location a full 8.5x11 page with the overall location, and then the 2nd page will be smaller sized photos as highlights with spaces for bits and pieces of things that I kept from each of the dates.

    as well as hand made borders/fringes etc..

    The actual book itself will be pre-bought so it looks like a standard scrap book but when opened its a whole other story.

    update

    Page one just needs Words and it's done! 26 more pages to go...

    The top photo of the venue, I took, the bottom photo of the band, I did not took ( :mamoru: ), grabbed it off of their website.

    Everything else is scans or photos of the CD's/Covers and the tickets that got us into the show, I printed an extra copies.

    [​IMG]

    the hard part was cutting the cd's into as perfect of a circle as I could.... :o
