Photo Art Friday – A Choice

Bonnie is allowing us to post something that we like, well she gave us a new texture pdpa vintage craquelure, so I just had to play. I took a photograph of a bunch of flowers I received this week, applied the texture at Hard Light 93% and then duplicated the layer and flipped it vertically and changed the opacity to 54%, added a blue colour adjustment layer. I used Rablab filter Lights On to brighten the image.

Vintage

With this photograph I desaturated the image which is mainly of a sunrise and applied the texture at Hard Light.

Tutorial Tuesday – Motorsports

This week’s tutorial is to take a Motorsports shot. Well that was last weekend in our area, so I settled on sports shots. I studied the technique and the manual and thought I knew it all LOL, but when we got to the local oval to take shots of the football (Australian Rules) I was getting dark images, so I switched to auto mode. I would like feed back on this image as I feel it does not have any oumph.

This was taken with these settings I 320 ISO 200 f/10 with a 55-300mm lens

Settings I 250 ISO200 f5.7

Photo Art Friday – Negative Space

Bonnie is talking negative space, well it took me ages to find a photograph that fitted the description. She also gave us a new texture to play with, so I had a play.

I played in Lightroom and then PSE10 here I just boosted the Adjustment levels.

The actual photograph I applied Find Edges filter and then overlaid with Bonnie’s new texture and used it several times at different blending modes and opacities. It is a bit of a pun about the quote, there are three birds at different levels, so one has to wait to step up the ladder (sorry).
