Hello, Sheep!

I had fun with some creative edits on the above two shots using Topaz Simplify and textures.

The one below is probably my favorite edit. I used both Topaz Simplify and Impression, as well as textures. I desaturated the bright blue sky to create a monochromatic look, which is more pleasing to my eye.

Tuesday Monet

It’s Topaz Impression time again.  I used a Monet filter (plus textures added in Photoshop) on these two images.  The second one is a copy of the first, re-edited in Lightroom in black and white with some split toning.

Ranuncu-LOVE

I had a photo already to post today, but then I came upon these ranunculus photos in Lightroom that hadn’t yet made my blog- one edited and one not.  I had fun editing the second one to kinda-sorta match the first- so here they are!

20150507-MMA_4728_melinda_anderson-Edit20150507-MMA_4723_melinda_anderson-EditEditing notes:  I really need to start consistently labeling my layers in Photoshop. I could tell I added a filter to a layer in the first photo- and then some texture (which comes in with a label automatically).  I assumed I used Topaz Impression- but which filter??? No idea.  For the second one I used Cezanne II, one of my favorites.  And another thing- is there a way to mark favorites in Impression? Anyone, anyone?


More Moon!

Van Gogh Peaches

One of my AAUW photo group friends was giving away peaches yesterday- a perfect opportunity for me to finally get back into my still life “studio.”  I have been so busy lately that I have had to put still life photography and macros on the back burner and just rely on the travel shots I’ve done throughout the summer.

I used my Lensbaby with the Edge 80 attached for these photos- and then ended up doing a version in Topaz Impression as well.

I added a texture to the original photo below to soften the black background.

I used one of  the Van Gogh filters, although there were MANY other options that would have worked well too.  I usually take the photos back into Photoshop and mask off portions to reduce the painterly effect, but I really liked them straight out of Impression this time.

Have a great Friday!
