One Four Challenge – May Week 3

Week 3 Processing

For the week three edit of my photo for the One Four Challenge, I chose a blue filtered version. This picture was actually mixed in with the red and white of last week’s edit, and I wanted to cool things down – I simply turned off all the layers above this one in Photoshop. The icy blue is a much more natural color for the water and the return to a simple monochrome smoothes out the “rough and wildness” of week 2. So far I have four unique versions, including the original, of this stream of water from the faucet hitting a makeup mirror in the kitchen sink.

But wait, there’s more…

Here is a second edit for week three. I added an artistic filter called plastic wrap and it really does something cool to the ordinariness. The plastic wrap makes the picture pop and look 3D, especially around the edges of the mirror, while the stream of water seems to sink because the edges have been raised a bit. I’m also reminded of the planet Earth, because there seems to be a roundness to this picture, more noticeable near the dark shadows (no, not you, Barnabus) at the bottom.

See you next week!

One Four Challenge – May Week 2

Wow, what an eventful three days in the state of Wisconsin it was while out to see my sister. So much traveling around and eating out that I barely found time to blog, but here I am back again in my ordinary life.

Here’s my week two edit of the ‘water rod’ on a mirror for Robyn’s One Four Challenge. I took last week’s sepia looking photo and blended it with two other edits of the picture I had created, one of them a blue filtered and the other a washed out white filtered. A little bit of adjusting the opacity and fill of the layers as well as changing the blending modes got me to this slightly different picture. I also added a red photo filter and brightness/contrast adjustment. I found that it can be somewhat difficult to separate the one dominant color in this picture and let others show below, because there wasn’t that much variety of color in the original to start with, but this turned out pretty good.

In one corner of my mind there’s the thought that I could have chosen a much more interesting picture for this challenge, while another says the subtlety and simplicity make this a work of art.

Game Mountain!

A great idea to stack some games on top of each other and photograph them came to me when thinking about angular. My Photoshop skills were also put to the test since I cut the games out from a green screen picture and placed them in front of different scenes.
