more experimentation…or playing if you will!

I’m enjoying experimenting with the settings in PhotoScape…it is a free program that is basically for beginners like myself…it does have a few advanced settings, at least to me they are… of which I’m trying to understand but for the most part it is very simple to work with!

below is the original photo…love this area of Leesburge, Florida…

Leesburge Florida cropped.2012 grey scale…I would like to figure out how to do the grey scale, but adding a punch of color…for instance in this photo the bird or some of the docks could be coloured…that look appeals to me.Leesburge Florida cropped.2012 grayscaleworked with the saturation on this one…Leesburge Florida cropped.2012 saturation levelsand of course the reverse black and white…I love contrasts…Leesburge Florida cropped.2012 reverse black


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?
