Yesterday was my first time using Photoshop to edit my pictures. Oh.My.Word. Can anyone say - new addiction? As if I needed one more thing to distract me from the mountain of laundry that's threatening to take over the house. Anyway.
We Picture This is a cool site that has lots of photo related goodies and loads of inspirational pictures. I'm joining in the fun and posting a before and after picture.
I shot this picture a couple weeks ago with my Sony A300 on the auto setting. (I literally just figured out how to use the manual setting like two days ago, so all you photo junkies, don't judge me.)
I cropped it slightly, added an yellow overlay by adding a new layer and then set the opacity to about 35%. I added a lighting effect filter that I think makes that round bale of hay look super interesting and viola! I think it looks kind of cool. In a very this is my first time editing, you can tell I didn't know what I was doing kind of way.
More of this before and after stuff to come, I assure you...or I warn you, I'm not sure which.
