CPD: north woods edition

this past friday my aunt and i got together for a camera play date {cpd} . . .  oh so nerdy and so much fun! she lives in northwest wisconsin on a lake, in the woods, with bee hives, a chicken coop and bog nearby and lots and lots of flowers . . . i am now calling it "camp julie"! 

she has been a macro photographer for years . . . way before it was cool! you can check out her stuff here.  she is a purist when it comes to her photography . . . she will do a couple tweaks here and there but for the most part her photos are straight out of the camera {sooc}! me on the other hand, i am out of control with editing! HA! i don't know when to stop, but for me it's part of the fun. 

i can't even tell you what photoshop actions i used on these. i also played around with some textures too. do you ever use textures? if so, do you have any favorites?

one last thing . . . it wouldn't be a post about photography if i didn't say this: learn how to use your camera! cpd's are one of the best and most fun ways to learn how to use your camera!
