Since I graduated from college in June with my AAS in photography I took a little break and just relaxed…… WELL I’M BACK. Deva Bailey-Logan, a fellow photography gave me the inspiration to shoot these images and I can’t thank her enough for lighting my creative flame again.
Spring is my favorite time of year I get so excited to photograph all the beautiful flowers that are in bloom. I love the colors, shapes and textures and I have so much fun with editing the images to see what I can create.
I created this abstract image from a photo of an apple that I took months ago. I really enjoy using my photos of something as simple as an apple and seeing what can be created.
My new floral abstract… I create these from images I capture and I am really having fun finding my creative side and seeing my photography expanding
I am so excited to be exploring this new form of art through photography, taking an image and seeing where the editing takes me. I find this form of art very freeing and highly expressive.
I have a total love hate relationship with Photoshop and my editing skills are something that I am focused on learning to really bring my images to the next level.
This was my first attempt at taking one of my flower images to the next level in Photoshop. I decided to learn the “oil painting” feature in Photoshop and prayed I wouldn’t toss my computer across the room LOL…….. NOTE: NOTHING WAS HURT OR DESTROYED DURING THE EDITING OF THIS IMAGE. To my utter surprised I completely enjoyed the creative process today and am totally stoked that I learned a new editing style in Photoshop.
I would love to hear your feedback, as well as any ideas/tips you would like to share editing your images especially in the abstract photography area.
I have become obsessed with “abstract photography” and seeing what I can create using everyday items around my home. In the above images I used oil, water, acrylic paint, nail polish as well as Q-tips. I never realized the use of such simple things could be used in creating something so beautiful. The creative process was so freeing, as well as exciting for me, I plan on continuing in this type of photography,
Looking at abstract art and letting my mind free to interrupt what it sees is always exciting for me. The emotions both mentally and visually that abstract art has on people I believe allows us to expand our minds in so many ways, and allows us to escape reality for a short time………………And who doesn’t need a little time to just ESCAPE AND RELAX from our busy lives.
