Although we add our photos to our Flickr galleries and then to the P52 gallery, I've decided to blog mine, as well. These are my first three photos of 2011. I hope to have each one be significant in some way....(I might run out of 'significance' before long, though!)
|I worked on learning to shoot bokeh with Christmas lights; this bokeh shot of the candle in front of the Christmas tree was my last one before the tree came down after the New Year. |
With one $2 bouquet of white carnations, I spent at least half a day doing 'white studies' in macro. Then I added a soft focus preset.
Week #3 of P52 features my new knowledge gained through Kim Klassen's 'skinny mini e-course' in PhotoShop Elements. I have wanted for so long to learn how to add textures, but I didn't understand layers. Now I have basic knowledge I can play with. This tree is one I'm photographing each month of the year; it's located about 8 miles from my house in a farmer's field.
