“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.”
“If you’re climbing the ladder of life, you go rung by rung, one step at a time. Don’t look too far up, set your goals high but take one step at a time. Sometimes you don’t think you’re progressing until you step back and see how high you’ve really gone.” – Donny Osmond
I’ve had a little mental lapse recently. Blogging hasn’t come as easy. I’m not sure if it is that I can’t decide on which images to post – I have been shooting quite a bit – or if it is the fact that the creative side of my brain has left for a sabbatical. Whatever the case, tonight I ran across this quote and remembered I recently took a lot of shots of some lilies. In my editing process I had changed some of the images to appear as watercolor paintings. The link between the image and quote is…painting.
As you have most likely noticed, the editing that I do to my images is minimal. I am a pretty traditional girl and tend to stick to the way things are when it comes to my photography style. Keeping it real, keeping it simple. Every now and again, though, I do force myself out of my box. What do you think? Do you like this style of editing? It doesn’t work for all images as this editing process removes detail and tends to blow things out a bit. I’ve seen digital paintings, I now need to research what constitutes digital paintings. Is it something as simple as this?
Same image, two very different editing styles. Which do you like best, for this image?
“Have compassion for everyone you meet, even if they don’t want it. What appears bad manners, an ill temper or cynicism is always a sign of things no ears have heard, no eyes have seen. You do not know what wars are going on down there where the spirit meets the bone.” – Miller Williams
