The Creative Exchange, hosted by Lisa Gordon Photography, is all about “your camera in one hand, your heart in the other.” I hope this entry is self-explanatory. I captured a moment as Peanut was walking hand-in-hand with her Papa on the beach. I love that she is looking up at him. And while it’s a perfect shot already, that didn’t stop me from trying a few small additions. Because I’m a graphic designer and not a fine art photographer, I simply must fritz with photos. It’s how I roll.
So I found a sand texture and multiplied the layer over the photo; then reduced the size of the photo to inset it in the texture. Using a hibiscus brush, I laid in a few tropical flowers. With the addition of the caption, I stopped before things got completely out of hand.
