Before and After

by Kay~Kacey on 8/14/2009

I thought you guys might enjoy seeing some before and after pictures of when I’m working with textures and going for a fine art technique for my photos.

daisies-with-texture

Here is the one from Pink is the New Black post. I set it up in my kitchen with light coming in through the french doors. I used foam board propped up to reflect more light back on the flowers.

hydragea-before-after

Here is a hydrangea photo that I did. I took this one on my desk in my office with my big silver reflector as a background. Note to self…you know that red towel I had on my desk to protect from the leaky roof? Move it off the corner of the desk before taking the shots. See the red reflected in the reflector?? :wallbash:

gerbera-daisy-in-window

This one I took directly in front of the window in my kitchen and blew out most of the background.

The textures I used on these photos are from Florabella. I bought the set she has for sale. There is also a flickr group for people who use her textures. There is some amazing photography/art there. Check it out.  Blame my texture obsession on Kate, from Chronicles of a Country Girl and her amazing Picture a Day blog. She got me started on them…

Amazing the things you (not me, YOU) can do with a photo. Take a pretty one and make it gorgeous!

Your photos are amazing…I will get to work on mine, when I get some time. I am learning quite a bit from you. Thank you!

I wish I was a master of photoshop like you… I think it would be so much fun :)
