I went to the Farmer’s Market last night and walking back to my car I saw this light. I got the idea to put a frame around it to block the light and then I decided to mask the upper part of the frame. Then I added a black layer to it which I also partially masked using a soft brush. The hard edge of the frame and the soft edge of the black form a nice contrast.
This image seemed to me an idea image which has some more potential and it needs more work. Art is always art in progress!
Happy week-end and happy photographing!
An old man walking his two dogs in front of a building in an empty street. I converted this image to black and white except the part inside the frame. The frame definitely draws attention tot he subject and works as a “picture in a picture.’
Enjoy and happy photographing!
Frames separate, they work like walls. The questions is: Can they be overcome? In this image I created a nice 3D effect by “erasing part of the frame.
Enjoy and keep on making images!
I lowered the the saturation level outside the frame. Enjoy and keep on creating great images!
You can do this exercise on a computer using Photoshop or other programs or you can do it manually on a regular print. What I ask you to do is to draw a square around your subject and observe the difference a simple square makes in an image. If you are a Photoshop user you can also change the inside or outside of the square. As always, enjoy and observe!
I photographed this rose early in the morning. I darkened the part outside the square!
