Texture Tuesday seems to arrive before I know it.
This week has been heavy on the Lightroom learning curve. Some days I seem to spend a lot of time figuring out why something doesn't go as I planned. As my friend says, it's almost always a selection problem.
In Kim's Start2Finish class I've been working in the print module learning to make a contact sheet. I edited one of my photos four ways and managed to create a contact sheet of them.
I did a still life photo shoot, something else we've been working on in S2F class. My kingdom for some light in my house. I discovered if I set everything up about 10:00 to 10:30AM I have a window of about an hour where I get some light in my bedroom sliding glass door (depending on the whim of the sun). That time frame is going to get a lot shorter as daylight hours dwindle. I uploaded 47 photos to Lightroom, culled them and then worked on a couple. I really like working with LR presets. Since LR and presets, it seems textures can almost be an overkill depending on the look I want. Kim has some beautiful presets, and I've made a few of my own. A project I completed for S2F…... set up a plant or flower or? using a paper bag as a holder.
I used only a preset here, but for my Texture Tuesday entry below I used Kim's "Not Too Shabby" texture on the same image.
and…..one final image…clean and simple.
