    I was just goofing around with these shots from the other day, Elliot had an Oreo mustache and my old toy car from the late 1970s or early 1980s.

    I found Sonya's dusty and dirty dog action to be pretty suitable for them, not that I know how to use them well.... but I thought they were kind of fun.

    Being a Hillbilly is pretty OK, it's those Rednecks you gotta watch out for ....

    Thank you! I really liked how they made them look!

    Speaking from experience, Mr Kentucky man? :wink:

    Absolutely no question about it. I'm Hillbilly and proud of it!
     
  6. Hey....I'm a KY girl, and I don't think I fall into the Hillbilly category, LOL! Just a little *country*....and I only wear shoes when I HAVE to. :tongue:

    Linda, these are great! Those are two of my favorite actions. When they fit the photo, they do amazing things. (photos with blue....)

    My interpretation is that Hillbillies loves cars and dress in the 1950s style, with the hair flip in the front (I recently cut off his hair) and he just looked the part!

    Sonya, it's funny how those actions never come out looking the same. I thought kind of looked like the older slides from the 1980s.
    Thanks for looking and leaving comments!

    Today, Freya will model for me in her cowgirl boots and denim dress. Wish me luck, as a 15 month old she's very independent.

    Nice... I like the muted colors.

    If I may, Sonya... where did you get those actions?

    Good luck with that! :smile: My youngest is 22 months and isn't sitting still unless we bribe her.... It doesn't help that her sister (5 1/2) is running around like a Road Runner - and she desperately want to be able to _everything_ her older sister is doing...

    Great pics too! I just love the light in your pictures, and the way you process them.

    Nice ones, Linda! I like the lomo-ish treatment you did. Very handsome young man - must've got your genes :smile:

    It's called denial, Sonya.
