In an effort to keep things fresh and to continue learning something new, I began experimenting with my new camera to enhance the pictures and perspectives of people, places and things I was photographing. For Christmas Kevin got me Photoshop, but I haven't yet loaded it on my computer. I did start using some online free editors like PicMonkey and BeFunky to play around with photos and get a feel for what different styles of picture editing might look like. Baby steps right now, but you have to start somewhere!
I started with a photo of Nala and after editing put together the first of my collages:
Then played with the shot of Kevin with his Tiara from the day we met Teresa's family at Disney and we all wore our Tiara's to celebrate Teresa's life.
|This effect called "underpainting" was my favorite|
|Original photo of boat and background.|
|Same photo with enhanced colors|
|Collection of subtle effects made|
|Collection playing with colors, "poster effect" and diffusing styles.|
|This one is called "watercolor" and designed to create that very look.|
|This is "yesteryear" and creates the look of old postcards|
