Change is in the air…  Time to get while the getting is still good.

It’s been blustery and cold here today and I’m guessing there are only a few more days, maybe a week or so (she says optimistically), of the beautiful fall color we had this year.   Here’s a few more of my favorite fall finds

Sample Compositing

Just turned in my first assignment for digital imaging. It was an exercise in using layers and extracting tools. I figured I would also use other tools at my disposal, such as Topaz remask 3, and the smudge, clone, and blur tools. Even though I have a pretty fair background in using these tools, I have decided to challenge myself for this class and try to be a little more creative and further hone in on my photoshop skills. So here’s Practice Assignment #1

Roll #3

Motion. 

This has proven to be quite a challenge using film. First, the weather has not been very cooperative this week.  Today, the sun came out and  I went to a local park to get some photos of kids sledding (today’s another snow day), but I felt incredibly limited using the 50 mm lens as required, the snow must have been wet because everyone seemed to be going in slow-motion anyway, and I seem to be running into some technical difficulty trying to blur the motion.  Like I said this roll has been quite a challenge, and I have five more shots left. 

On a brighter note, it looks like class will go on as scheduled tomorrow and I will get to develop some of the negatives I did last week.  I bet you’re as excited as I am to see them 😉
