I’ve scheduled a few posts until I get my head around the long trip to Turkey and get some shots processed to post. This cows’ skull was found on my property and as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to combine it with a different background. Took me a few months to get around to it, but here it is with a bit of a play around on the borders.
Three of the same rose from my Beauty Lingers series. This took me literally hours to do, discovering how the layers work, and how to put frames around the layered image; then loosing it all, starting again and plodding through, remembering the vignette this time (well I did have to restart again for it but did remember before I saved the finished image) 🙂
Another of my daughters shots of me to play with, she’s the professional portrait photographer – I just play. To see more of her work click here
I was given this idea of using my own quilts by Joseph of Dark Pines Photos a very clever ideas person who uses layers and textures and mixtures of other stuff a lot, well worth looking at his posts here. I used to, in another life, teach Quilting both here in Australia and overseas, so incorporating quilts into my images seems obvious now it has been pointed out, thank you Joseph.
My daughter, who is a portrait photographer, took the base photo which is of me. www.kimeales.com Also this week I watched a short clip of a Creative Live video and learnt so much in 15 minutes I’ll have to get the course. I hadn’t realised just how little I knew about Photoshop. So a little less floundering around and a bit of practise with 6 layers including some textures I took yesterday. Didn’t quite get the look I was after, but it is a start. And now I remember I was going to put a vignette around it too, ah well maybe next time 🙂
