Love: Kim & Billy

Kim & Billy 6 Kim & Billy 4 Kim & Billy 1 Kim & Billy 5 Kim & Billy 6

The bride & groom wanted modern & simple & not something they'd look back on in ten years and say "HELLO 2011". Fait accompli methinks.

Navy & Poppy on Lettra 110 Flo White. Matching Navy envelopes with custom liners. Return address in Silver. Hopefully my last mag on wood job EVER.

So how are my pictures looking? Good? I am loving this depth-of-field shit. Every time I mess with it I think back to my one photo class in collage and how I totally bombed the depth-of-field project. I just could not grasp the concept for some reason. I'd like to blame the 20-ish year old camera I was using, but in hindsight it was probably just a hangover. Do you think they could be a bit brighter? I'm finding it hard to draw the line between "bright" and "blown out".

Happy March 4th! Here's a Christmas Card!!!

Printed on Flo White Lettra 110, blind emboss (deboss? the jury's still out) and a custom mixed brick red ink. The always fashionable Sarah paired these with a lovely Gravel Paper Source envelope. More photos here.

And is there some magical blogging formula I'm missing? I'm finding this all very frustrating. It seems everything I try gives me some sort of other problem. Oh look, the left half of my photo has been cropped off! Why the eff is my text centered now?!? How did this space get here?!?!?? WHY IS THIS PHOTO SO SMALL!?!?!?! And it's not even like I went and fancied up my blog, I mean LOOK AT IT. It's basically the default, I'm guessing this is only going to get harder once I start pretty-ing it up.

Maybe one of my 2 readers can help? I'm not asking for much, I'll break it down to bullet points because my anxious nature requires organization:
  • I would like larger pictures, even when I hit the "large" button they're still only the size of my fist on the screen.
  • I would like all my photos to be the same width, preferably the same width of my text. Is this something I need to do myself in p'shop or is there a magic "make all my pics the same damn size" button?
  • I would like to link up with flickr so people can see a larger version of my photos, but also because flickr is where all the cool kids are. I really don't have the desire to manually copy and paste a link for each photo. Where is the magic "flickr" button?
It's not helping my case that I have no html experience. And apparently I really have a thing for buttons.

Update!!!! Now with LARGER PICTURES!!!!!!

Is this thing on?

Update: Not exactly the blogging epiphany I was hoping for. Lets try this again...


This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.
