Week 17 ~ Special Guest Star Linda and Love

Hello all, I could not be more excited this week. Know why? My sweetest friend Linda is our guest here! Like most crafty friends out there, I met Linda online. I was looking for a DT for City Crafter Challenge Blog while living in New York City. As you have guessed, soon after we moved to Las Vegas 3 and a half years ago, we met in person! It was a fun meeting and I am so glad to know her. We then meet up regularly, sometimes with our husbands for dinner and sometimes just Linda and I for lunch. Linda and her husband started her new journal few months ago, they have been traveling in their camper and visited some beautiful places in the country, you can check out Linda's blog and follow her journey.
If you know Linda, you should already know that she is a talent, not only she makes pretty cards and fun journal pages, she is also great at photography and editing, well, we are lucky to have Linda with us today don't you think? She picks the word prompt for today as well as sharing with us some useful tips.
Ladies (and gentlemen, if we have any here), please welcome my sweet friend -




Hello, it’s so exciting to be a guest here at OBW.  It’s so wonderful to see all the beautiful photos from all over the world.  I choose the word “LOVE” for this week.  If you’re wondering why I chose this word it’s because I am loving my life right now. 

So if you would like to know one of my favorite tricks on my Camera it would have to be when I learned how to use “exposure compensation”.  Most of you probably already know about this but if you don’t it can help you save a photo when the light is not right. I use it all the time.  Almost all cameras have this capability, including your point and shoot cameras.  The trick is you cannot be in Auto mode.  If you are little bit shy about using the other Modes just put it in “P” mode. It’s the next best thing to the auto mode.  If you want to learn about “exposure compensation” just do a search on your computer and you will find all kinds of tutorials on how to use this feature on your camera. I am pretty sure you will use it as much as I do.

I am looking forward to seeing what photos you all have for the word.......



LOVE

I've added the link to the DT's personal blog, click on the names and it will take you there to read about the story behind each photo.

We love to have more people join in the fun, please feel free to grab our button (on top of the side bar), and use it on your blog post and have a link back to our blog when you mentioned Our Beautiful World on your post, thanks so much!


When you link up your project, don't forget to tell us which part of the world were those photos taken from, you know sometimes it is hard to tell from the picture. Type in your name using the linking system, simply put your country (or city) in bracket after your name, e.g. Alice Watson (Canada).

We encourage you to hop around and read about the story behind each photo, make friends or you can mingle here at the comment section, this is what Our Beautiful World is all about!
