When I came across Debbie Smyth’s One Word Sunday’s prompt of “Abstract,” I couldn’t help but go through my archives and reminisce over all the photo art I used to digitally create. These days there are apps that do it all for you with one tap of the screen.
Boy, did I use to dodge and burn, cut and paste, mask and layer, and layer and layer and layer. And pinch and whirl, brush and overlay, multiply and screen, distort and blur. You get the idea.
Each piece began as a photo taken with my camera and then edited in GIMP, which is a free software program very similar to Photoshop from what I hear. I love it.
I did these years ago, and because our style sometimes evolves over time, I imagine my pieces would look different today…or maybe not. I may start experimenting again to find out.
This is for A Photo A Week Challenge: Dead Center. It is of the morning sun shine bursting through my burgandy-curtained window.
This is for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Abstract. I had these dumped out every where on my counter, but it turns out they look much cooler sitting in the container they came in. I dialed up the highlights during post-processing to give it more of a vibrant, artsy feel.
