Well I love to blog, and do it daily. It's like an Artist's Date with writing and photography. Sometimes it's serious, other times funny-(I hope) but always an expression of what's happening in my life. I will be teaching a CREATIVE BLOGGING class soon for our local Community Education program, so I'm trying some different techniques with www.slide.com. It's quite easy if you just follow the simple instructions. (See previous posts for slide examples. Below are some more photos from the Oregon coast.)
I like to use Photoshop software to play with on some photos from Oregon of their lovely flowers. Even showed Caryn how to use PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS (it came with a scanner I bought) while we were on our vacation together. It's amazing what you can do with it to correct red eyes, fix cracks in old photos, change exposures, etc. Below is a sample of different artistic filters on the same photo. Working with just one flower garden photo from Oregon, I got several cool effects. (See below-click to enlarge.) It feels like you actually painting with a computer. Try it sometime. It's soooo FUN!
