One Four Challenge March Week 4

One Four Challenge Week 4 This is my photo for this month.  Using Sagelight,  I’m going to try to have this image tell a different story each week. For this week’s image, I aged the photo, used the posterize feature and applied a filter.  Although this image is dark I don’t find it threatening as in week 1, probably because of the warm overtone to it.  And … Continue reading One Four Challenge March Week 4

One Four Challenge March Week 3

This is my photo for this month.  Using Sagelight,  I’m going to try to have this image tell a different story each week. Week 2 I tried for a nostalgic feel, lost in personal reverie where the rest of the world fades into muffled silence … This week with only one modification it speaks to me of a different story.  Of having traveled a difficult time, perhaps … Continue reading One Four Challenge March Week 3

One Four Challenge Feb Week 4

This is the photo I am going to use this month.  Each week I’m going to begin with some sort of distortion of this photo and see if I can produce an interesting and pleasing artistic image. For week 4 I again began with a polar coordinates distortion which I compounded by repeating it several times until something I liked emerged. I quite liked this but continued … Continue reading One Four Challenge Feb Week 4

One Four Challenge Feb Week 3

This is the photo I am going to use this month. Each week I’m going to begin with some sort of distortion of this photo and see if I can produce an interesting and pleasing artistic image. For week three I began in Sagelight with a plug-in to smooth the image and then applied a median filter.  In PS Elements 8 I distorted it using polar … Continue reading One Four Challenge Feb Week 3
