While traveling through Ontario I stopped to snap a few pictures. I was surprised, and yet pleased to notice that I hadn’t taken very many but that they turned out just as I had hoped. I guess it’s a sign that I’m getting better with the camera. Yeah!
This prayer card was tricky with multiple components. I was given the photo of the couple (on the left) as well as a family photo (on the right). The difficulty came with family photo not already including everyone. I was given an additional lower quality photo and asked to incorporate them. This took a lot of tweaking with the color balance, contrast, scaling, etc. I would have liked to have taken the photo myself, making the lighting similar but this was not possible. Can you see the two in the center/back and how the light hits them a little differently than the others? In the end I think it turned out pretty well. I then added additional text and grahical elements.
I was at Reedsburg Dam taking pictures when I saw a couple going behind the falls. Just as I snapped a picture he gave her a hug. I love the way it looks like I put some kind of effect on the picture.
