While I was talking to Deb this afternoon, I was given an assignment for tonight. With the help and advice from our friend Denise Ippolito, http://deniseippolito.com/, Deb has been playing around a lot lately with different filters in photoshop and other programs. For the most part I like what she has come up with. I’m just not as creative in seeing the possibilities hidden in the images. So she gave me a few hints, easy places to start, nothing too outrageous yet.
So here’s this nice, unsuspecting female bluebird sitting on a swing. Not a bad shot, clean background, nice perch and complementary colors between the subject and the background. What oh what could we do to start pushing this image, just a little?
Looks a bit like a painting. Very soft almost pastel colors, quite artistic…..I guess.
Of course there’s always this –
Sometimes if you push too hard, they push back!
sort of makes your head hurt
