Welcome to Colorado Springs Daily Photo!

Hi, I'm Tamera, a professional wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer in Colorado Springs. But this blog isn't about my professional work; no, it's a daily love note to my beautiful city, where I've lived for most of my life. I love it here and I hope you enjoy seeing Colorado Springs through my eyes and lens!

A faux moment

Today was cold and I never even left the house, and rummaging through my "stock" photos of Colorado Springs I couldn't find anything that I liked enough to put here on the blog. I did come across a decent snap of a Starr Kempf mobile sculpture that I snapped from my car window as I waited in traffic on January 22nd. But I didn't like the sky in the photo, it was completely washed out. What to do?

If you take a close look at this photo you'll see it's an imposter! A poseur, a visual white lie. I used the aforementioned photo and replaced the blown out sky with the sky from this photo. In this day and age, you can't always believe everything you see! Sometimes I use my Photoshop skills for good, sometimes I use them for evil (*insert sinister laugh here*).

More on the wonderful
Starr Kempf another time, when I get a worthy photo of one of his masterpieces.

It's a beautiful photo even if you did have to be a bit sinister!
