This photo was taken by my daughter Hannah Maria. She was 11 years old when she took this photo on our Kansas Farm in Republic County.

I sat down with her and pulled this photo up in LR5. I manipulated LR while she told me what she liked better and which direction to go and what look she wanted to create. We finished this by creating a preset of all the manipulations, calling it "HF" for Hannah Farm.

With only one print online in an art market, she sold one very large print copy within two weeks.

We went through some other photos that she had taken that day and applied the same preset to them, cropping them to a 2x3 aspect ratio for easy selection for printing. We also had to use a special program to increase the pixel count and resolution for better printing of very large photos, such as the one she had already sold.

The money she makes from selling her photos will go into her photography fund. This fund will help her get better equipment for taking photos and editing them in post processing herself. She also wants to visit New York City to visit and sight see but to also take photos there.

Hannah Maria loves creating anything really. She really loves sharing her creations with other people. Whether people just look at her work and make a nice comment or if they purchase a print to hang in their home, she is ecstatic that her creative talent is being adored.

As a father, I want to see her succeed. I will also help her learn and guide her through her projects as long as this is something that she wants to do for her self gratification (even if some of that comes from other people's satisfaction and enjoyment of her artwork).

Follow your dreams, Hannah Maria, one shot at a time.
