On the fence
The weekly posts for After Before Friday have been hosted by Stacy at Visual Venturing for more than a year. She did a wonderful job, and I know how much work is involved with a weekly project. She decided to step away from the weekly forum, and just continue with the One photo focus once a month. Ben Rowe at Aperture 64 decided to take over the weekly forum though. Which I am thrilled about, because I have enjoyed it so much.
So this Friday is week 59 in the After Before Friday forum in it’s new home, Aperture 64.
I found this great old buckrail fence the other day. The Tetons were visible in the distance behind it, and I loved the gold colors in the grass too.
And before edits.
I edited this photo with a program called Perfect Effects 9. I installed this program because I wanted some texture filters, and fun borders. I like that it will layer different effects too. I used a natural sunshine filter, a slight HDR filter, and a vintage filter. I played around with so many, I can’t remember which exactly I used. But I really like the end result. The biggest problem with Perfect Effects 9 is once you save the photo, you can’t see what filters you used.
I had edited this photo, same thing, just playing around with different looks and I ended up with something quite cool.
But I have no idea what I did, and in what order. I tried to replicate this look on a different photo, and couldn’t.
This image has a texture filter, and a cool border.
And going with the same “On the fence” theme, I have this photo of the milky way I took the other night. This was exciting for me because I have tried star photography before, and failed. I will have that story, and more photos on Monday.
