My latest image entitled 'Orange Roses' came about because it was my birthday last week and one of my lovely daughters had 20 beautiful roses sent to me with the message on the card stating, among other things, 'I expect photos' lol.
Needless to say my birthday was a busy day, not only because of the roses I needed to photograph and the extra interactions with friends and family but also because of the Wimbledon tennis I obviously HAD to watch :) Well - it was my birthday I was allowed to treat myself to a bit of day time TV.
Anyway, enough of the chatting, let's get down to the photography. This is the final edited version of the image - slighly textured, colourful, glowing and with a hint of vintage. I have to say I really was quite pleased with the end result.
I have a terribly disorganized approach to my editing work which results in lots of back tracking in my efforts, lots of trial and error whilst I decide which bits I do and don't think work and the inevitable total lack of any clear record of my editing process which I can then share with others. I do apologize for that. If I get a sufficient level of interest in my editing process I will definitely endeavour to be a little more organized so that I can effectively share how I go about achieving my resultant images.
I can say, however, that I did once again use the textures that I had purchased through Design Cuts, who put together the most awesome design bundles for creatives at massively discounted rates - well worth a look. The textures were created by the very talented Denise Love of 2 Lil Owls fame. I absolutely love her creations.
For the moment however, I will just share with you the start photo so that you can see just how much it changed.
Once again, thank you very much for dropping by, and if you would like to keep up with all my latest news and images, please do join me on Facebook.
