B & W

I’m finding myself  attracted more and more to b & w…one of the blogs follow just did a b & w series, with a few flowers shots in b & w which inspired me to give it a try!

experimenting with filters…

I was looking through photos for a post and began playing with the different filters available in Photoscape…while this isn’t an extensive software it does offer a few interesting filters…the original photo is below, then in order, water painting, two different swirl filters, reflection filter, embossing filter, with colour added and one of my favourite filters the reverse black & white

sepia of course…I’m becoming a fan of sepia, it adds interesting colour to the photo, giving an aged appearance to the photo…

fun with photo manipulation…

Hmmmm…I”m new to the world of photography in this manner… I’ve taken photos all my life of family, my trips, jewelry to post…but…I’ve never taken photos to post on a blog for others to see!

On my new journey something I’ve been seeing in my travels around photography blogs is photo manipulation.   The only program I have to work with my photos is Picasa…jewelry photos doesn’t require any special effects!  Having said that I just learned I can do some very interesting photo manipulation with Picasa.  I’ve added a few photos…it was fun to experiment…

This is the original, all I’ve done is crop it…I think the redishness is from the sunset behind me when I was taking this photos?

I’ve added a boarder & used the heat map setting…this one was fun!boarder.heatmap.2012 (524 x 600)

I’ve used infrared film, lomo-ish, and added a boarder, mysterious!infrared fil, lomo-ish, boarder.2012 (524 x 600)
