Alphabet Adventure

November 25, 2012 at 8:44 am (Family, Photo Gallery, Photography)

During a trip in spring 2012 to visit my grandchildren, Henry and Oliver, we embarked on an alphabet adventure. We found letters everywhere we went—downtown, in the yard, at the park, on errands, everywhere! We photographed all the letters we found. Both boys were excellent hunters. What a thrill it was to see little Ollie, who had only recently learned to recognize his letters, find “a lower-case Y” in a tree root! Here is our project, published not an alphabet book. (I used Mixbook for this project, a very fun photo site):

More Photoshop

First, I must apologize for neglecting my blog all summer. I guess I just like to play outside too much to sit in front of the computer long enough for blog maintenance! Last spring, I took a semester-long Photoshop class at Oakton College (ART 257), 16 weeks of excellent instruction and inspiration (thanks to teacher Jody Lepinot). You’ve already seen the first half of my work from the class in the gallery below. Here are the remaining images created for the final critiques.

Photoshop Composites

This gallery features digital photo compositions from my current class on advanced masking and compositing in Photoshop. My goals include sorting my plethora of photos, both digital and vast collections of old family photos, and documenting collections (both virtual and physical). Some of my inspiration comes from the styles of Maggie Taylor and Martina Lopez.
