Photo Art Friday – Moving

While in Adelaide this week I went to the Japanese Garden, it was a lovely Spring Day, lots of photographs were taken, I decided the ducks were rather cute and deserved some treatment. I first used Bonnie’s great technique of using the  Filter Artistic/Poster edges and Filter Sketch/find Edges in Photoshop. I then carried on by:-

1.Using Soft Light Blending- 100%

2. Duplicated the layer and used Screen Blending Mode at 100%

3. These two layers were placed over  pdpa Nitty Gritty at Pin Light 100% – this was my bottom layer with pdpa Simply Urban Grunge – Overlay 100% above this.

4. Merged layers and used a Topaz Lab filter Adjust 5/Toned Collection/Black Rose added a layer mask and brushed away some areas.

Tutorial Tuesday – Watermark

This is the last week of Tutorial Tuesday, I am sorry to see the end as I have learnt so much and this week tutorial was creating watermarks. It is so important to add a watermark to your work as there are plenty of people who will use  someone’ s work  and call it their own.

I have created several one for my photography and another for my collage designs. This photograph was taken last week after it rained, I edited it in PSE10 by layer in the Adjustment Layers and Filters.

Tutorial Tuesday – Lens Free

What a challenge, I wasn’t sure what to expect but it was startling. The first photograph was taken inside with all the lights turned on in the room and is an antique lamp that has been converted to electricity so the orange is the light from the globe. The second set were taken outside this morning no sunshine to speak of.  I had a lot of black images.

Photo Art Friday – Container(s)

This week  – I took a lot of garden shots this week and have this Eucalyptus that does not have flowers but has an intriguing pod (my containers). With my edit, I did some basic editing in Lightroom for exposure etc and then went to PSE10. I have edited the shot to make it abstract by

1. Filter Artistic/Poster edges -Multiply 70%

2. Filter Sketch/Halftone -Soft Light 100%

3. added a texture by Pixel Dust  called pdpa Jupiters Dust at Vivid Light 100%

4. added a duplicate of the texture at Multipy 100% added a layer mask and brought back only certain areas.
