Playing w/the new camera today

I'm thinking I'll be doing Paige's senior pics in a few years, and save some money! She's quite photogenic, and takes a good picture almost every time. As I look more closely at these pics (I'm my worst critic!) I see now that I have a shadow behind their heads. I guess I need to get the lights and filters that the pros use! I was just using the natural light coming from the window, and I didn't see the shadows before. I'm learning...

Now only if these two would get along this good for more than five minutes...

Do any of you use Adobe Photoshop Elements 5.0? I'm wondering which filter to use to make my pics (top one) look more professional, like a blur filter? Any help would be appreciated!

You're killing me with the photographer's signature in the corner of the photos!!! I am so jealous. I need to pout now...

I have 5 but I am a newbie, I am trying to experiment myself, I went to a blog the other day, ugh I could probably never find it again... and she was showing tricks she used like mugshopt fix and them some other filter and it brightened everything up lovely but I could not find anything similar to mugshopt fix, so I am thinking she had a different photoshop/
Beautiful pics.

Nice Pictures! I bet you're having fun with that new camera!

Fantastic! I am so impressed. No doubt you can do her Senior Pics. I wouldn't have noticed the shadow if you wouldn't have said it. I had to look for it.
Beautiful family!

Great job! She is very photogenic. I would have never noticed the shadow if you had not pointed it out. The little guy is handsome too!

Your pics are absolutely beautiful but then again, you have beautiful subjects. Great job! I do not have photoshop but I wish I did. I am clueless about that sort of thing. I would love to have it and learn to use it also.

We use Elements 5 but I haven't played around enough to really know how to use it.

Hey, Miss Thang. There's a shadow between her clevage... You need to add a rose or a big grandma broach.
