I have had plenty of time at home to play with the light and shadows, these shadows have been provided by Kim Klassen and added to the flowers as a layer in photoshop. I have followed Kim for quite some time now, she has re-opened Texture Tuesday. It seems like a perfect time to take some photos, old and new to experiment with adding textures to create new digital art. It is a great relief from watching the news.
I photographed a few old slides, this one dates back to 2001! Adding textures helped to create more dramatic colours and texture. I love that it looks more like a painting than a photograph.
If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen this image. This beautiful little girl is now a beautiful mom with two little ones of her own. To create the digital image I photographed an old black and white image, then added one of Kim’s light textures to enhance the sun light coming through the window adding to the soft dreamy nature of the images.
Another image using light and texture from Kim’s collection, this one I wanted to as some text, experiment with adding a type layer to the image.
While we can’t physically stay close, I hope you can connect online, and help someone else feel they are your Sunshine.
So many great ways to capture the light, and use it in both old and new photos for Texture Tuesday! Kim is opening a new online program to explore light, texture, and text, and I am looking forward to all of this while as we stay close to home. I especially love this quote, “instead of worrying about what you cannot control, shift your energy to what you can create” Roy T. Bennett.
I will leave you with one final image, an dried tulip, with light streaming through the curtain, it would seem that with there is beauty everywhere if we go looking for it.
take care, stay well, I would love to hear from you.
