Getting back to basics...

A while back I signed up for Faith Raider's photography e-course, and well, now it's here! It kind of snuck up on me, I had filed away the date in my mind and turned my focus onto lumberjacks, turkeys, monkeys, and jingle bells. Class began this week and so far I've quite enjoyed it!

I like that, even though I have a pretty good grasp on ISO, shutter speed and aperture and it's relation to a good photo, the class has made me slow down and ACTUALLY pay attention. Making me slow down and get the best picture I can in camera...

Well, I just thought I'd share one of my pictures from this week in a little side by side comparison...

For the class we only submit the SOOC version, but I loved the picture so much I just wanted to give it a little tweak...and honestly I really did only tweak it slightly. I gave it a PW boost and lowered the zing layer to 20% opacity then gave it a little PW lovely action at 20%opacity, that's it, oh and I cropped it slightly.

Then I thought, "Hey, I haven't don't a texture in awhile" here's the textured version!

Here is my SOOC collage I submitted for my homework

And a few more edited versions of my favorite images from my session with our beat up pear
