This week we were asked to showcase one of our favorite techniques in Photo Editing and share what we did to get that effect. Since I'm still learning and have a "long way" to go before I can pick out a favorite technique I'm going to have to say that just about anything I am able to edit is probably a big accomplishment for me. I love SOOC photo's but am learning that they can be a lot of fun and really unique when you edit them as well.
So for this week here is my SOOC shot: It's a shot I took of my granddaughte, Coleen playing in the leaves at the park.
Next I added a Texture (Autumn Grunge) which is a FREE texture offered by Linda of Sienna Photo Designs here: I added the texture using the Gimp program (a Free photo editing program) found here: I used Hardlight at 85.1%. Then I closed the photo and uploaded it on Picnik (I love this website) and used the Orton-ish effect, Bloom 30%, Brightness 50%. - Then I added a quote that I looked up by Emily Dickinson. I used the Font, Bleeding Cowboy also in Hardlight.
Here is the results of my edits:
Well that's it for this week. Be sure to stop by Bonnie's Blog to check out the other enteries for some fantastic photo art.
