One of my photos from the Oscar de la Renta show that was held in San Francisco earlier this year. These gowns were in the Hollywood room and were worn by various stars at different events.
…and the living is easy… Just enjoying some free creative time playing around in Photoshop with a hand-painted background and lots of fun layers!
One of my rhododendrons has decided now is the time to bloom! With the drought in California, I am not sure if it is just confused or a fall bloomer. I also have a redbud with a few blooms on it. Whether in season or out, flowers are always welcome in my garden! For Kim Klassen’s Friday Finds, http://kimklassen.com/friday-finds-bella-grace/
I love this verse from the book of Psalms. It lightens and strengthens my heart. May it cheer up your heart today!
I used Kim’s kk_franklin in two different layers, adding a hue/saturation adjustment to each and also switching the layers to a Soft Light Blend Mode. In between I added a Filter Forge 4 “Soft-focus Amplify” filter. For Kim’s Texture Tuesday. http://www.kimklassen.com
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!
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.
