Background Florals

Flower - macro wisteria

 

Good morning from a wet and miserable Hastings today.

Yet another day of wishing Emirates Team New Zealand all the best on the waters off San Francisco.  I have given up watching as it is too heart breaking.

I have also been doing some playing around on Photoshop with my photos to try out different affects for background papers.  I find myself using the cutout brush a bit for a more bolder look,

while the poster edge brush gives the images some definition.

Flower - geranium

I have also used the plastic wrap brush as seen with the geranium.

For the freesia  and lavender images I finished off with the pencil brush but I find that it really washes out the images so really only use it in bold colours

When I go out to take photos I try to see if I can find some bold prints such as the ones above.  They make great bold background papers.

I wanted something a bit different for this image.  With this one I can add a saying without adding any further images.

When I go out photo hunting now it is with a purpose.  It is now always at the back of mind what the images could be used for and how I could edit them.  This has meant that I have cut back on the number of photos I do take.  So that is a good thing.

Cheers and have a nice day.
