Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Create


This is a photo/graphic design piece that I just created for a client. It started out as a single image of a white lily. She wanted something flowing and in pink tones. I turned the original lily into a layer, duplicated the layer, and chose different hues. I then created the background using the same lily, but in black and white. Then I created a layer mask and made a pink gradient, flattened the image, and voila! The finished image measures 8′ x 4′.


Life in the micro-world


Light, color, reflections, new growth, water drops, tiny hairs on flowers…they’re abundant in nature. Landscapes, skies, and bodies of water are sensational, but I also love to get ‘up-close and personal’ and photograph those things that are often over-looked, or perhaps even stepped on. ┬áThe above image, and several more, are posted in my Nature photo album. Please don’t step on the small stuff…
