So perhaps not the best photo shop, but this is a 365 day journey. So I started tonight out with just the thought that I wanted to capture melting ice cream. I went to the store and got some cheap ice cream for the picture (and some higher quality ice cream for me 🙂 ) When I had that done I then wanted to try to pick up some other photo shop skills. I did learn a lot about layers and selections, so a good experience session for me and hoping to get better each time.
So, at work again means more building pictures :-). This one was taken from the parking garage at my office building. I’m not at my best in the morning, I’m a night owl, but this came out pretty clear and just applied a filter to highlight the detail.
Well, this was my second try at getting a water droplet. And yet another fail – however! I’m happy with the shot I did get. I think this is a good ripple. I used a blue bowl on top of a black velvet shirt, with an orange salt lamp to give a litle light behind it. I like that it is clear where the water is stable and that I got some depth with the ripple. Not what I was going for – but a good result (I think). This one was taken with my Nikon DSLR. While I don’t have a water droplet by intent, I did get another photo that essentially had a bubble rising – but as I only get to post one a day – I liked this more 😉
So not sure if it is just me that sees the cat face in the blood orange. I took this one on day 2 of my 365 journey. Wasn’t quite yet in the swing of things and when I remembered I needed to take a picture, it was wet and almost dusk. But I went outside and gave it a shot. I was worried about the camera getting wet; juggling an umbrella to keep it dry and trying for a water droplet on a tree. It came out lousy. So I started poking about the house and got a blood orange and my 2nd favorite vase. When I took the picture I was just hoping for something that looked interesting, but as I looked at it, it started to look to me like a fat Siamese cat. Maybe it’s just me 🙂
