Default April Photography Challenge - 'LOVE'

What does 'Love' mean to you? Is it a person, a place, a pet, or maybe your favorite pair of comfy slippers ??

Take a moment to think about the things you love, and how to express them pictorially through a photograph. Perhaps try a new technique while you're photographing, or get creative in your photo editing software.

I'll be back with some more tips throughout the month, and a photo of my own after the kids go the bed .

So, let's get lovey dovey and see some gorgeously creative eye candy!

Default Re: April Photography Challenge - 'LOVE'

Here is my first one...

This was taken on a recent holiday to Noosa. Not only do I LOVE the beach, and Noosa, but when I look at this photo of my 2 boys, it just melts my heart. They're already so comfortable at the beach, like 2 little surfies, they seem right at home! It makes me so happy to see them so happy ...



I edited and cropped this photo in Adobe Lightroom - both a color version and a mocha version. Then, in Photoshop, I layered the the mocha on top of the color, and erased the bucket, exposing the red color. I then ran a filter in Filter Forge called Film Frame to get the edging and grainy effect. And whilst the photo is not technically perfect - a little blurry - it's the feeling that it gives me that's important!

Ooooo, and sunsets....

This was taken from our balcony @ Noosa. I haven't used any filters for the color - it's real, I just added the frame filter and 'roughed' it up a bit...

I love his gorgeous naturally olive skin, and the way he looks at me sometimes...

Personally, I think the blur adds to the wonderful feeling of this photo, as if to point out "Focus on the important things in life, and don't worry about the rest!" Great photo!
