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.

Leaf pattern on glass shade on lantern.

No editing SOOC

Edited in Lightroom to remove some of the grain

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.

Tutorial Tuesday – Simple Edit

What a challenge to do a simple edit. I took this photograph on Sunday while in Loxton for a SALA event and this young lady was talking to her Grandmother who was painting. I did the edit in Lightroom.

Photo Art Friday – Gift

Surprise, surprise, this week, a wild rabbit came into the house and huddled up in a corner of the living room, did the cat chase her in? I took a photograph this morning of him/her and also of some garden plants, collaged them with pdpa Art Easy Sheer Moonlight texture.

Tutorial Tuesday – Golden Hour

This week our tutorial is to take photographs during the Golden Hour. I was up early enough to capture the hour before sunrise. As it is Winter I was not expecting too much. Well did I get a surprise. I have not edited these shots other than cropping.

I wonder what the Golden Hour at Sunset will reveal. I have been back through my sunset photographs and have some that were taken during the Golden Hour, but I will revisit my garden later today.
