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.
Gordon (my camera) and myself took a stroll together through the neighborhood and captured wild flowers, I loved the poppies that were growing randomly in a yard that we passed by so I could help but capture their beauty.
As a photographer, I am really trying to explore my editing skills in multiple programs and just letting my artistic skills grow. There are times that one image can take on so many forms that I find I struggle with what image I like the most. I guess that is the hardest thing for an artist to deal with and I beginning to think your first instinct is actually the best…. DON’T OVER THINK YOUR ART
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 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.
For years, I have received many stunning floral arrangements for Mother’s Day, and this year that tradition continues. I have alway wished I could find some way to memorialize my floral arrangements, but sadly they are permanently stored in my memories. Today, I decided to change that so I would have these gifts with me forever.
I have been attending college courses for photography over the last two years, and my goal has been to purchasing equipment for my home studio, I can finally say “I HAVE EQUIPMENT” to fill a studio………oh on a sad note our living room gets completely taken over as my studio space when I am shooting my photography.
My images above are of the beautiful flowers I received for Mother’s Day, and now they won’t become a distant memory, they are now with me forever….. GIFTS THAT KEEP GIVING THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY.
