  4. Annie says:

    I love your photos! Esp the black and whites. Would you mind sharing some editing tips? Do you use presets?

    • MarieMasse says:

      Thank you so much, Annie. I don’t use any purchased presets at this point – though I used ACR presets + Photoshop actions when I was learning (from Colorvale Actions). I got a feel for what I liked and with experience I eventually created my own ACR preset for each new set of images + use it just for that set.

    I understand your feelings. Thirty years ago my brother and I sold the home we grew up in since we no longer lived in town and our parents were both gone. We sold it to my best friend, who had also spent many hours there, both as a teenager and as an adult when he helped our Mom with various tasks after our Dad died. Unfortunately, I have very few photos from decades of life in the home my maternal grandparents built in the 1920s. When my friend and his business partners, who had bought it intending to do some renovations and then re-sell it, did sell a few months after buying it, he wrote me a very moving letter expressing how he then understood how I must have felt when I left it for the last time. He experienced similar feelings since he had so many memories of pleasure spent there. When my wife and I moved from our first home together, which she had owned for several years, we had managed to take more photos of its interior and exterior, although, as usual, there are not nearly as many as we might want. This post is an excellent prompt to take more shots around our present home, since at some time we’ll be moving on. Thanks for the post.

    Absolutely adore these. The images in the South are so fitting, especially the image of your daughter with the Dollar General in the background. It just screams small town south. Reminds me of where I grew up. Love, love these photos and the story they tell.
