Photo Art Friday – Book Cover

Bonnie’s challenge was to take a favourite book and apply this to one of her textures such as pdpa Blank page. I had to think hard and long, then I remember a photo I took back in 2003 while on a holiday in Maine with my friend who took me to see a covered bridge.  In the past I enjoyed reading Waller’s “Bridges of Madison County”, so I decided to see if I could bring the two together.

I altered the original photograph with KK’s Wonderful Magic texture, then I played with pdpa Inkblotter as the first layer at Darken blending mode 100% opacity, I added pdpa Blank Page over this at Normal blending 100% opacity, added my covered bridge and then placed pdpa Birth of Light over this at blending mode of Saturation 100% opacity. Added the text. Then using the colour replacement brush added a reddish colour to the roof. My final touch was to use Topaz Labs Adjust 5 filter to brighten up the features.

Tutorial Tuesday – High Key

I was not sure if I could get this tutuorial done with my “photographic” equipment, but it worked. I took my lightbox outside and had my “light” man hold the car’s sunlight reflector just right and this is what happened.

This is not as white, but this I guess could be edited.
