Day Thirty-Six


I’ve always wondered what the heck to do with all of the creative filters within Photoshop.  I had tried to edit a few photos in the past using filters to see what I could create, but honestly I used them as a last resort when I needed to save a photo that had Exposure or Aperture issues.

I really enjoyed creating the levitation photo a few weeks back so I decided to use the levitation technique on an object and then apply a filter.  I get that there’s a lot going on here, but I really wanted to see how I might utilize the filters in the future.

I staged a background using a blue scarf behind the jar of gumballs and set everything out on our coffee table, did all of the levitation preparation.  I played around with flash, natural light, indoor light, a combination of all lighting, and came up with an interesting photo.   More importantly I learned that I am grasping basic concepts and that I have a higher level of confidence in myself and my ability than I did 35 days ago…
