Week 4: Working with layers.
Auto aligned two layers and revealed selected areas to create a family portrait with all eyes looking at the camera and smiles all around. This picture was provided by the curriculum.
Week 4: Stamps.
Our assignment was to create several custom postage stamps using a specified process. I had a hard time choosing photos, but I picked three in the end: one of a butterfly I took at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle, which reminds me of the butterflies I saw as a kid in Monterey Bay, CA; the second that I took last winter of a fallen log at Railroad Bridge Park from a bridge on the Dungeness River in Sequim, WA; and the third that I caught of two bald eagles working on a nest just off the road near Cline Spit in Sequim, WA. I created the stamps at 300ppi.
Week 4: Create a postcard.
We were asked to select a locale and create a collage-style postcard for it. I got a little carried away. All images courtesy the free stock art site, http://www.sxc.hu.
Week 4: Motion Blur
We were to add motion blur artistically to three action shots. I took these pictures of my son Ethan last year during the big Thanksgiving snowstorm, after the sun came out.
