Kim Rogers uses Gina’s Goldilocks Preset of the week
“Here’s one I took this week for the 365 (and edited with Gina Milicia’s Goldilocks Lite and a few tweaks) but I haven’t got my act together to sort out any others just yet. I haven’t been very motivated to do my 365 lately. My 6D is now in at Canon counseling with my 50mm lens that has had focus issues so that they can be friends again. I am really glad that I have publicly committed to uploading my images, otherwise I’d probably just say “I gave it a go” and leave it as it is 2 months in because this takes time out of evenings every week. This is one of my images that I am glad I picked up my 60D camera and chose to document the moment. They had been cooking with Dad, and my son is obsessed with telling secrets right now :)I love that the background is blown out and I will probably use this lighting angle again.”
