Artsy Fartsy Tuesday-Week 21
Good grief, how did it get to be week 21 already?! Time flies!
The 52 week challenges this time around were fun, and interesting. The Dogwood 52 was Artistic – Soft. My first thought was Roxy, and how she loves her soft blankie. She is such a softie and will climb on any blanket, anywhere.
She is such a snuggle bug!
The 2LilOwls challenge is bokeh. This was a little harder. Getting bokeh with artificial lighting in the background was not an option. So when I was walking with the dogs the other day, I started looking for a spot with an interesting subject, and were the light would be partially coming through the trees. This dandelion was perfect.
I had to literally lay flat on the ground so I could shoot upwards, and get a good shot of the dandelion. I was pretty happy with the results.
These next images are some artistic playing around I did.
This first one is all about the original shot, and how the horses were positioned. I have always loved the image I have from last year, The Angles of the Horse, and this was like that, only double. Sometimes when you click the shutter, you just KNOW you have something good. I turned into a high contrast black and white, which I really like. I call this one, A Better Angle, and it’s available in my online shop.
These next two are a new concept for me. Double exposure.
This was my first try at double exposure, and I like the end result. I posted this photo in the Photoshop and Lightroom group I am in on facebook, and got a lot of positive feedback. That always makes you feel good.
I then played around with these two images. I’m not as thrilled with this one, so it might be a work in progress.
What do you think of these images?
