I {heart} Flower Fotos...

My friend, Pat, invited me to go to a local park with her this week and I was soooo glad she reminded me to bring my camera.

I just LOVE practicing my fotography techniques by taking fotos of flowers!  These are two of the fotos I liked best, so I thought I'd share.

I decided to get a bit fancy with this one while trying to remember how to use some of the tools I learned in the Photoshop class I too 3 years ago.  I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to figure out how to get the gradient tool to work the way I wanted it too...after a few tries, of course.

My next foto was a close-up that I just LOVE.  I have a lens that can get up really close to my subject and does an awesome job of letting me practice on my in and out of focus fotos.
I really didn't do much to this foto at all.  Don't you just LOVE the way it turned out?

Just a few artful fotos

Wow!!!!  I can't believe it's already the end of February, 2013.  I have to say, I've taken MANY fotos since my last post in May, 2011....but alas...they've either remained on my camera...or "crashed" with my computer crash in October, 2012...

I'm starting 2013 out creatively and want to share some random photos I took while spending an artful day with friends at our lss.

I'm really trying to take fotos of more than my peeps, so here's to an ARTFUL 2013!

These are my friend Monica's brushes as she washed them after our "ARTFUL" playdate.  It was actually her idea to take this picture and I just love the way it turned out. 
Thanks for the great idea, Monica!!!
Here is another frugal foto of her cup of brushes.
I decided to "play" a bit with Photoshop today and used the color picker to use in my type.  I chose a color from the yellow pen top to the left of my typing.  I just love this shade of buttery and sunshiny.
