Yeah, yeah. I know I’m a week late with this. I had one idea but didn’t have the chance to execute so I decided to skip it. Today, when I began browsing through my Paris photos for the Urban theme, I actually got inspired to do Merge. No worries, I’m still doing this week’s challenge, I’m just going to get the previous one out-of-the-way first.
Ooh, Notre Dame! To achieve this look I used layers, selective magic wand, pattern I got from Deviant Art and Pioneer Woman Action “Quick Edge Burn”. The photo itself is SOOC and was shot on some random setting accidentally, which gave the photo its bluish tone. Then to finish things off, I merged the layers together. Here’s the original:
Sigh. I miss Paris. If only I could be there! No wait. I will be! In couple of months! Yay!
Last summer I visited my friend Anu who lives in Turku for couple of days. Since I’m seriously cool and my social life is booming, I spent my Friday night editing pictures I took over there. When I say editing, I mean I dabbled with some Photoshop Actions I downloaded ages ago from The Pioneer Woman. On this one I used the Boost and Seventies- actions which have turned out to be my favourites.
Yup. It’s a dead bird. Nope. It doesn’t have anything to do with my trip to Turku. I just wanted to prove my attachment to afore-mentioned Photoshop Actions. I took it last year at my aunt’s summer cottage where we were celebrating my cousin’s birthday. On our way we began talking how the whole situation (birthday party, booze, bunch of young people, remote location) is a good set up for slasher movie. Of course, me being me, I couldn’t let the idea go, so I took loads of pictures so I could make a story board. Well the story board hasn’t happened yet and probably never will but letting your imagination run is sure fun.
