Day Ten ~ A Painterly Effect

“Nature is painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty.” ~John Ruskin

 

Today’s assignment in Kim’s class is to use gradient maps, filters, adjustment layers, textures, and other
techniques, to create a painted effect from a photo.

It was an interesting lesson, but I still haven’t committed the process to memory!  I need my notebook beside me!

I need a lot of practice, but these are my first versions of the Painterly Effect.
I used PhotoShop Elements to process the photos.

Thank you for visiting!

Assignment Day 5: Time Capsules

Time Capsules.   Capturing ordinary blocks of time in our life.

“The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine.”  ~Mike Murdock

My assignment for the next two days is to take photos of the ordinary daily routines around my home.

Too often we get caught up in capturing special moments like trips, birthdays, weddings, and other special occasions, 

but our lives revolve around the simple things, our every-day routines.  How nice to stop, once in awhile, and capture those 

moments.  If you have children, pets, parents or grandparents, living with you~then those kinds of ordinary moments will be very

special in the future as you look at the growth of children, pets, or cherish the memory of those who have passed away.

Thursday we will learn to make a Time Capsule, and I’ll post it.  (MAYBE!!)   Just kidding!

Daily routine: checking the amount of snow on the sidewalk, and looking for deer.....

Come back on Thursday!
