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.
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.
