REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Photo Art with Something New

For Photo Art Friday, Bonnie's challenge is for us to use "a tool, method or style we've been wanting to try."  Actually, as far as my programs go, I've tried each of them several times.  I still haven't worked much on combining images with textures.....Bonnie inspired me to try that a few weeks ago.     I fell back on an application I purchased a while ago, used like crazy until I purchased RadLab and learned more about adding textures.  This is called Lo-Fi, which does adjusts three things on each image:  film, mood, frame.

This particular image of a frosty branch in my backyard was first converted to black and white with Nelly Nero's Grunge Me Up, RadLab's Superfun Happy and the Lo-Fi's  Velvet, Crunchy, Viewfinder application.  That's a lot!

Very nice.

Terrific Evelyn! That is wonderful.

I don't think I will ever get the hang of all the things machines can do. I am a novice for sure.

Lovely, I like the frosty feel that this branch has and the way you composed it (even though I don't understand) is just wonderful.

Hi Evelyn...I'm a new visitor from PAF. I really love how you have accentuated the frost in this image. You used contrast to really let us feel the chill. Nicely done!

The processing adds a mysterious look which makes me want to stop and gaze a while. Stunning new header Evelyn! Thank you for sharing your work with Photo Art Friday!
