Photo Art Friday – Exits; and an entry…

I’ve been a bit preoccupied lately, and my photo/art has been suffering a little for it… I do want to keep in there, though, so for this week’s PAF challenge I opted to browse through some stuff I did before Christmas. Some way before…




Actually, this was kind of good, too. Usually, I tend to get so caught up with the stuff I do that I always risk cramming too much into it in the end – and then I’m in such a hurry either to get it up here because I’m happy with where it went, or I just ditch it ’cause it didn’t come out right and then I never look at it again… I need to learn to take a step back and do a little at a time with some – if not all, really – images.

The drawback is that there is no way I can remember what I did with these, other than lots of layers and usually two or more textures for each shot, blended in various modes as the fancy takes me… I do know that I was trying out “Colour burn” mode quite forcefully on two of them.

Right now, they suit my mood.

  1. These images are just captivating and vibrant. Sometimes ‘colour burn’ makes stunning changes to an image. Thanks for sharing these!

    • Thank you, Bonnie! Yes, I think it was initially something you’d created that made me want to explore colour burn a little more… And while the effect can be rather drastic, sometimes drastic feels just right πŸ˜‰

    • Haha, true! πŸ™‚ I do try to share as I find it very inspirational myself when others do, but sometimes the technicalities are perhaps just not that relevant… Thank you!

  2. captivating, especially the way you’ve construed the lighting ine each piece of photoart

    • Thanks Ida! The bottom shot is actually of the ‘super moon’, of March -11, entering the night sky. It was the colour burn blending mode that engendered the forest fire effect, and I kind of liked it… I’m glad you do, too! πŸ™‚

  3. Love these….especially that first little bird. I love photographing birds and I can visualize a entire series of birds treated this way in a wall collection.
