I am working away on my learning curve in Lightroom and Photoshop, sometimes moving forward, sometimes Sysiphus-fashion, slipping backwards, starting again. And again. I am not hi-tech, that is for sure, and I am sometimes, no often, totally confounded by what is happening, or not happening, and trying to figure out what is going on....I am quite obsessed. Round and round I go. My head is very full!!
But I am discovering some things that I do like. I like a grain-y quality to some of my pictures. Sort of a grunge look. Like this one. And I am hoping that as I go along I will be able to add a more sophisticated look to my grunge (can those two thoughts even exist together???). I am excited at the thought that as one learns more, one sees things that didn't seem evident at the outset. So this is a first-take, baby steps. Starting somewhere. Seeing nothing, feeling my way.
To this one, I have added layers of marks that I made on paper with water soluble graphite. And grain. And grunge. Baby steps!
(Steph, this is one of the shots that I took when you kindly pulled over and let me take photos on the way to La Conner. Thanks for your patience!!!)
I'll be back.
