I used two of Kim’s textures, one was “empty page”, the other I have named kk1; I think it’s name got removed when moving files around one time. I also used two of Kim’s Lightroom Presets- Classic Warm 2, and Days of Old. I also added a couple of RadLab filters as well. I am enjoying shooting very simple layouts; I used a scarf I own plus a wheelbarrow that has a found bird nest and a ceramic bird. Effortless composition!

Room to Breathe…

Day 2 of BeStill52, Kim Klassen’s new class encourages us to allow room to breathe, in our photos and in our lives. I used kk_justgolden from her Studio Collection for this photo taken outside in my backyard. Thanks to Sherri Reed for the prop. A great Robert Mondavi quote.

Balboa Park Facade

Art-Museum-at-Balboa-Park-copy I took this photo in Balboa Park, San Diego, CA. It is part of the front of one of the art museums there. I added two layers of kk_partings at 100%, Multiply Blend Mode, and also a Filter Forge Filter on top of that. This is for Texture Tuesday, the Black & White.

the STILL life…

Roses-in-Pitcher2-the-STILL-life-copy A friend and I had a lovely day photographing different still life vignettes last week. I am starting Kim Klassen’s BeStill52 Photography class this week and thought this photo said what I am working toward. A STILL life wherein I am trusting Christ to work in me His own character.
